It’s funny how you can completely change the vibe of an image by removing the color. Please see the previous post for the color versions and shoot details!
Personal growth ain’t always pretty, darlings…sometimes you have to get messy, get raw, get primal, and get REAL. I wanted to capture that here…no makeup, and no skin retouching whatsoever. And you know what? I felt a really cool surge of power after shooting this. I felt free. Do the scary thing, whatever that means for you.
Well, well….here we are, two years later! This one really flew for me. It was a year of big change, as my husband and I moved to Seattle from NYC. It’s definitely been a good change along with a big adjustment. I’ve met amazing new faces, wrestled with pets to keep them out of every shot, continued on personal work, expanded the print shop by double, gotten up close and personal with nature, and generally enjoyed the beauty and culture of the Pacific Northwest.
I’ve also been doing a lot more drawing this year, and rediscovering watercolors, pastels, charcoals, and other wonderfully messy things. Maybe I’ll start showing a little of that here as well.
Is there anything in particular you’d like to see more of from me? And of course, if you’d like to set up your own photo shoot with me, please do so here: Book a shoot with Liz
Thanks for hanging out with me here!
