Chelsey: The Ring of Fire

Once upon a time I used to take photos regularly. Then grad school happened. It turns out grad school is not terribly conducive to free time for side careers. Whodathunk, right? Anyway, I was contacted by the lovely and talented Chelsey to shoot some promo photos for her hula hooping performance art business. And like if you’re…

Day 1330 of 365 4 lyf. Still catching up… Almost there…. Had my second shoot with Christy today, and she brought her makeup artist, Alicia, to help out. Got some good stuff too. I’m so behind on editing shoots at this point it’s not even funny. 365 days Also on: Flickr iconFlickr

I am quite happy with this card. When I came up with the concept while talking to Rachael, we were both kind of excited about it. In fact, talking about the card with her was the entire thing that inspired me to take her, Laurie and Amaya on the river shoot.

That said, I was kind of nervous about it. I was quite confident that taking pictures of three gorgeous girls nude, in an absolutely gorgeous mountain river setting during golden hour would turn out great. What I was worried about, however was doing a tarot card outside of the studio setting. From the very beginning of this project, I had intended to do every shot in the studio so that I could have visual consistency in the style. But I had taken pictures at the waterfall before and I was pretty sure I could blacken it and process it to the level that would make it look the way I wanted. Especially with golden hour lighting.

I’m quite happy with how it turned out and hope that it matches the other cards well enough. I wonder if I’ll end up doing any other cards outside.

And of course comments and criticism welcome.

After I went in the waterfall for my 365 shot, the girls all promised that they’d go in there to let me take a picture of them together. They slowly managed to get about half way there before Jess bailed out completely and came back and Steph and Amaya decided it was too cold. So they decided to get pics under "the little waterfall" as they called it, or as I would call it, water dribbling over the side of the rock. But whatever, it was hella cute.

Day 338 of 365 days. Today was pretty bittersweet. I actually had a great day. Steph and I drove out to West Virginia to visit Amaya. She and her roommate took us up into the mountains to hang out at a waterfall. It wasn’t really a photoshoot. More of a picnic. We took beer and…
