I belong to a photographers group called We Are The Seen. This program challenges my photography skills with monthly shooting challenges and image critiques. This group is one of the best ways for me to expand my photography skills and creative thinking. Check out my blog on We Are the Seen here!
One recent challenge we were given was “shooting with color.” So, naturally, I had to do some creative thinking to come up with a unique idea for this shoot.
Remember when you were young and created finger-paint masterpieces in preschool? You may have then given your work of art to your mom as a special mother’s day gift? It probably had the entire rainbow of colors included on one piece of paper, because you have to use as many colors as available, am I right? And by the end of this finger-painting extravaganza, you have inevitably become more covered in paint than your paper is.
Channeling our inner pre-schooler, we chose to shoot with finger-paint splatter. Our challenge with this idea? To capture images of: paint midair + a stunning model + we had to figure out how to use high speed sync with alienbees. EXPLAIN MORE OF LIGHT SETUP
In a world that is so black and white, it could always use a splash of color. 😉
