TAYLOR : Alabama Hills

The two words I’ve been chasing in my work lately are Emotional and Unique. I’ve been shooting for 10 years now and I’ve come to realize how important setting goals is to creative growth. My goals lately are to create things that make me feel something and that stands out against what I’ve created in the past. Hopefully these do both for you too.

tip:

One of the things that made this shoot stand out for me is how I shot it. Instead of setting up a shot and shooting it while I stood still, I didn't stop moving. I kept shooting as I got up close, down low, above, and far away. By continuing to move I found that I was able to capture so much more variety and more interesting angles than I have in the past. Sharing that just in case you need to hear it too!

    I’ve been especially loving your work with mirrors lately. in this one, i couldn’t stop looking at the image of her where it looks like she’s staring directly at her own reflection—it makes me wonder how you got the shot without getting yourself in it!

    I love the idea of challenging yourself by setting goals to grow creatively.

    PS: I seriously fell in love with this shoot.

    I love this. I am a huge fan of the ones where she’s trashing on the ground and you can see her previous movements in the dirt…like hand prints and movement. Nice!!!

    HI Ben these are just beautiful. Question how do you get your skin tones and texture to look so amazing and soft?

    • Thanks Allison! Skin tone is hugely dependent on the light you shoot in. I like to shoot in soft, even light. Either fully backlit, or shaded and facing towards light. That isn’t always the case, but it is most of the time :). You can read more about how I light things at Lighting.BenSasso.com. As for editing, any time I need to fix skin tones, I do that in the HSL.You can read about that in my Before/After blog post about overwhelming tones. Hope that’s helpful for you!
