At the BLEND workshop we are split up into three groups, with different instructors each day. Today I was with the super talented Jose Villa. What a genuine, real and honest person. I could only say positive things about this guy. He talked about passion, and how he functions as a photographer and then some helpful tips on getting published in a magazine. I WANT to be published. And I want you as my blog readers consisting of family and friends to hold me to that goal.
In Jose's group we did a fun photo shoot with a sweet couple, Ashley and Jeremy Parsons
. Two fabulous photographers from Kansas City with real love.
Here's a shot I took of them. My idea for composition on the image was; 1. I love to shoot through objects, 2. I wanted her to be a fashionista
and him Mr. GQ
, and 3. The way I layed it out in photoshop
was a tribute to my college days. I used to develop my own film (35mm bw
, 4x5 film, and 120/220 film for the Holga
) and Jose is a film shooter. And he does matted art pieces for his clients and it brought back great memories from back in the day when I used to do all of that stuff. So below is a little square cropping on my digital matte board.
