As if it was yesterday this book still gives me some excitement when I look at the page by page photographs.
I only bought this book about 12 years a go when I was a student. Buried somewhere in a box, I was thrilled to have found it when opened up boxes in our new home. Still it gives ton of inspiration as I turned the pages.
Do you have one book although it is old still gives you an inspiration and excitement each time you open up the pages? For me, this book embodied that one particular feel. Already I brewed some inspiration in my mind that I wanted to tackle as a home decor project in the future.
These images were shot with Nikkor 50 mm and 85 mm f/1.8D AF Nikon lenses. As a result the close up images creates an artistic photography rather then showing the full image of pages.
In the past I always fulfill my client's request to shoot them during mid day; for example 1:00 pm or 2:00 pm. It is up to you to educate your client to ask them to shoot around 4:00 pm or even 5:00 pm depends on the hours of the year like winter time or summer time as 5:00 pm it gets dark quicker during winter time. Shooting portrait during this hour is so glorious. You will get that sharp soft images. From now on I will try to talk into my client to shoot during these hours only. It is a two way street. It is good for you but even better for your client as they will get a beautiful images of themselves.
Some of these images shot at 2:00 pm and some at 5:30 to 6:00 pm. Can you tell which one which are those images?
If you interested in purchasing this book, it is available (here).
I do hope you enjoy looking at these images taken from Carolyn Quartermaine's REVEALED book.
And, thank you for stopping by.
