This week my lovely Meesh and I had a little fun in the studio, I used the images for a fashion assignment for class where we had to do a series of different poses without changing the background or angle.
Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of assisting Maria Laxamana in LA shooting a look book for Carmelita Couture, fabulous designs and group! I had so much fun. Here are some random shots I took behind the scenes :)
This darling couple booked me to shoot a couple's session of them, we did these in Santa Monica and I love how they came out. And I love Laura and Joe of course!! We had so much fun and I miss them already :)
My favorites are the last two, the reflection on the sand and the colors of the sunset were so beautiful!
I'm so in love with museums!! I try and visit a museum at least once a month, and with all the amazing options near by like the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Getty and the LACMA i'm in heaven. Here are a few pieces I found inspirational in my recent museum ventures...
Francois-Joseph Navez, "The Massacre of the Innocents" viewed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC
"Springtime" and "The Storm", both by Pierre-Auguste Cot. Also seen at the Met, absolutely breathtaking in real life. The paintings are huge, probably 6 feet tall maybe even more and the light and color and emotion all amaze me!
This is Alberto Giacometti among his work, I viewed a few of his sculptures at the LACMA a few weeks ago and they are so amazing and haunting in person, it re-taught me the power of simplicity.
I can't really explain why, but i'm really drawn to art like this as well. A friend and I were trying to figure out the appeal when i saw this at LACMA and couldn't look away..
