Experimental Photography

I have a certain style about my photography that involves a lot of texture to my work. Last weekend I had a chance to shoot at Blok Studio with a couple friends and the thing is about this studio, it's clean, white, walls. 

It threw me for such a loop because I felt as if I didn't have anything to work with. Since I'm primarily an outdoor photographer, I scout for locations often for architecture or different areas that would be prime to put a person in. Walking into Blok was literally a blank slate that could be turned into whatever I wanted it to be. 

However, that day, it wasn't for me, I was assisting a friend with a project and it was her canvas that we were working with, and luckily we had Erica's genius and the lighting abilities of my friend Pete, who is featured in these photos, to do the hard creative work. (I'll jump in next time) Surprisingly it came out pretty great. Think, Drake's Hotline Bling, and the action shots that we took were accentuated because there was nothing else to distract from the subject itself.

I'm excited to try again when it's my turn.  I've learned that you've just gotta throw yourself out there, because you can't make an omelette without cracking some eggs.
