This Is The Shot!
Random reflections of my favorite photographs throughout my career. Why I shot them, why I love them, why I think they work, and the stories behind them. Here are the images that, when I looked through my viewfinder, gave me that “This Is The Shot!” moment…
Utilizing the psychology of color is a common thread in my work. Scientisits discovered a long time ago that color has a definite effect on our emotions, moods, and perceptions. Advertisers spend millions of dollars every year simply testing color because they are well aware of it's attributes.
In the shot above, the color and shade of green utilized was carefully calculated. Green is the most calming color to the viewer. The goal of this shot was to portray confidence in beauty, but on a more soothing and refined level. If red was chosen for the backround and wardrobe, the feel of the photograph would be much different. The skin tones and gold accessories accentuate the gentle, natural, holistic healing power symbolized by the color green, as does her hand and finger positions around her face.
The rest was up to the model to complete the goal with the right facial expression and attitude, which she pulled off flawlessly.
