You can only view so many wonderful, amazing pictures before you start becoming inspired to make your own. It's exciting, nerve wracking, frustrating and wonderful to run your own shoot!
I wanted to make something different than a model in a standard setting. This led to composites where I'm cutting out the models and putting them into different scenes. It gives the picture a story, texture and history that make it much more fun to look at. The process takes a lot more time, but in the end the picture becomes art.
After my 7th model my Mom decided I needed to start doing artwork she could hang on her walls. She told me to forget the models and start shooting some flowers for her! Of course it's always a good idea to do what your Mom tells you. : )
I didn't want to take traditional flowers pictures either - so I started developing my own vivid style with nature. I've come to love my flower and cloud pictures as much as my model pictures. : )
Thanks for stopping by!

Very nice eye candy. Love most of the digital image manipulations in this book, and like the photographer's before-and-after photos.
