I needed a day to just unplug and do something fun, explore and go somewhere I’ve never been before. I called a model friend of mine and asked her if she wanted to do something bizarre, involving a creepy mask I found, with long exposure photography. I went to Kentucky and we went to an abandoned hospital and I really loved it. I explained to her how to move and pause, in the sequence of doing shutter drag photography. There’s definitely patience and science involved in completing this task successfully. With these I used a 10 second shutter and a variable neutral density filter so that the image wouldn’t be overexposed.
I have no idea what inspired this particular mask and concept. I just wanted to use it and do something creative to help my creative soul. These things are necessary to translate to my fine art nude and boudoir work, when I can invent a concept, I can think faster when on the job and use that creativity to my advantage….as well as to benefit my clients.
