“The Glasses People”
I take pictures of family or friends but I like doing it in an artistic way. It's easier to control the shot if I'm dealing with someone I know. I can then easily choose the clothes, what backround I use, and if I use any props. Visually, I like contrast and simple shapes and forms because life is so complicated anyway. As far as the set, I like using different sunglasses, hats, and t-shirts with simple color schemes. For the final phase, most of my images are manipulated only a little to maintain a somewhat realistic quality. Although with most photographs, there is a particular idea I try to invoke, there is always somewhat of a surprise in the end.
