Hand Holding Flower
One of my favorite things in any type of photoshoot is to focus on something the person I am photographing doesn’t necessarily think I’m focusing on. This is not done as an attempt at deception–rather, it is an attempt to capture something genuine. As a result, these detailed shots are often the ones which feel most personal and human when I look at them; the accidental beauties of being. These three pictures are all from different shoots and each shoot with a different intention. The shot picturing a woman with ringed fingers on her collarbone was shot on a 35mm film camera–my favorite medium. This shot was taken during a boudoir shoot in the spare bedroom of my house. The shot picturing a hand holding a daffodil is a digital taken during a senior portrait shoot. The last photo was taken during a portrait session in the woods.
