So, since graduation I have been pretty much taking it easy. I have a lot of photo shoots “in the works” but somehow I ended up with this giant gap of two months where I didn’t really do any work. My close friends and family know me as the kind of person who doesn’t often like to slow down. I am terrible at relaxing as it tends to make me depressed instead of mellow. But I just rolled to a stand still. Mostly I was burnt out. Working for a newspaper is challenging and rewarding, but taking photos for a story is not nearly as personally exciting as creating photos AS a story and can be draining. So after my last shoot for the Oracle I needed a break. But in an effort not to lose my touch, I called Sasha over one afternoon to play dress up and hang out in front of my camera as we hung out in my back yard. The following photos are conceptual/styling brainstorms, so don’t be surprised if you see some elements show up in later shoots.
