Ashley & Shane on a riverside walk – photography preview

Most photographers stick with the basics and charge extra for the more advanced enhancements.  Myself?  I’m too much of a perfectionist when it comes to my work.  I am not an efficient editor.  I’m far too nitpicky.  So those advanced adjustments?  I just include them with any shoot I edit.  I simply can’t help myself.

That said, I often find myself holding back a bit while working through a shoot.  My work is quite stylized.  I put a lot of myself into each and every photograph.  But I’m not always sure that my clients will appreciate some of the extremes I can push things to.  So I do tend to hold back…  that is, unless I’ve been given the “go ahead” by my clients to do as I will, and then?  Then I am a very happy photog!

Ashley let me know right from the start that she likes fashion forward photography.  The washed out, grainy, hazy quality that I so enjoy.  So I was thrilled to know I’d be able to be free to play.  And even better?  After looking through some of my work here at TD365 she also pointed out a few images with really stark contrasts as being particularly appealing.  That meant that I could go to either end of the spectrum – both are waters I enjoy sticking splashing into.

I had a lot of fun shooting with Ashley and Shane, but it was an equal joy getting to put the finishing touches on their photographs.  I felt completely free to do what I do best.  To really push and pull each and every image to bring out the best in this couple.  So thanks Ashley – for allowing me to pour my heart into your shoot.  I hope you and Shane will love each of these images as much as I do.
