Two of Coins

Two of Coins

The problem with taking years to complete a project like my Tarot Deck is that as time goes on I realize how unhappy I am with some of the earlier shots. This means I have to redo them, which means that the project takes even longer to complete.

The old Two of Coins has been on my list to reshoot for a long time, but it wasn’t actually my intention to use Lizz for the reshoot. In fact I had her pegged for the four of staffs, which wasn’t done yet at all. But after we shot that, she ended up liking one of the dresses in my model closet a lot (I have a wardrobe full of outfits for shoots) and once she tried it on, I decided she a great look for this card. Once I had edited it, I really felt like this was totally the way to go. I’m glad I did. Of course now I have to shoot the four of staffs yet again, but I’m pretty sure its worth it.

One of the things that makes me think that I’m getting some success as a photographer is that I now have people asking to shoot with me. That’s how I found Rana. She heard about the Tarot project from another model and wanted to be a part of it. We had our shoot yesterday, and I’m quite happy with the results. She has a nice socialite look about her which I thought went well with the coins cards. I’m behind with photo editting, but I’ll be posting other shots of her when I get to them.
