this week, i didn’t have much time to take pictures over the weekend, what, with my predictably busy lifestyle. but i did find a spare moment to look through my picture archive, and found a collection of photos from only a few weeks ago that just remind me of how much i love my camera, and the creativity that it sparks in me.
for these pictures, i decided to change it up a little, just because i was feeling artsy, and i put on a bright purple wig! the style and color are so different from what my own hair looks like, that i barely even recognize myself in these. i did this photo shoot with my friend, callie, who happens to be very blonde, making her hair almost yellow. the two tones contrast in a very aesthetically pleasing way (they are, after all, opposites on the color wheel), and make the pictures twice as interesting as they would have been with either of us individually.
blonde and purple, purple and blonde. whichever way you slice it, the resulting photos are both stunning and surprising. it was a beautifully sunny day, so we walked up the street of my house to do the shoot in a setting with less background distractions, while also taking a few pictures along the way. it was an interesting experience stepping in front of the camera, as i am notoriously camera shy, but i found that i really did like the feeling that went along with capturing beautiful images of myself.
the hair i wore was a little bob cut, and very vintage looking when i paired it with a denim jacket and polka dot skirt, and callie was wearing a messy side braid with a loose t shirt and ripped jeans that made her look relaxed and modern. these pictures, in every way, portray us as visual opposites, and this happens to hold true in our personalities as well. i myself, am more introverted and quietly creative, while callie is loud and friendly, and boldly artsy. all of these elements are mashed together when we collaborate, and instead of clashing, we complement each other in the best ways as photographers and friends. please comment below to let me know how you express yourself, and have a wonderful day.
