Summertime brings warmer temperatures and cooler clothes. I worked with a talented male model, Brandon Quigley, on a fashion shoot this week in Atlanta. The outfit he styled was white chinos with dark blue v-neck sweater, overlaid with army green vest, and vans.
Brandon brought a great vibe to the photo session, which definitely transfers to the images, with his professionalism and laid-back attitude. Although it was a typically hot summer day in the South, we got some really great shots together.
One aspect of photography that I enjoy is working with the elements to get interesting photographs. In these pictures I tried to let the sun and heat naturally influence the angles that were chosen and poses we concentrated on. To try and ignore the environment for the sake of the photo might have been a real struggle, leading to an unproductive outing. But, I think we produced better and more creative photos by accepting the conditions and using them to guide the shoot.
