Creating meaningful portrait images is one of the most difficult challenges that a photographer can face. No amount of fancy photography gear will help you push the shutter release at just the right instant to capture an image with feeling or character. The subject of this portrait session had plenty of character and together we managed to create some memorable images.
Remembering Spirit Through Music and Storytelling
Lolly Wagon enlivens imagination and inspires creativity with the light of self, plants, animals, fairies, elves, gnomes, spirit, goblins, dwarfs, Maya, elementals, angels, pan, and gaia. The musical accompaniment during the stories provides scene changes for the unfolding curative. Enlightening true love –we songs– enunciate kindness, and well-being.
After several wardrobe, props and lighting changes we felt we had “covered all the bases” and completed the shoot. Once I started reviewing the images I realized there was an excellent opportunity to create several animated GIF images. After color correcting and re-sizing several sequences of images I was able to use Photoshop to make these animations. This one is my favorite and always brings a smile to my face.
