You know that saying “leave your work at the office”? Yeah…photographers aren’t really into that. We like to hang out with other photographers, Skype with other photographers, blog-stalk other photographers, chat on forums with other photographers…you get the picture. (Ugghh, I promise that pun was unintended.)
So, I was psyched to attend a photography shootout earlier this month in Wildwood, hosted by my friend and fellow photog, Cara Carlson. The models were styled by the fabulous Alicia DiBlasio of Belle Morte. It was loads of fun, a great chance to test out some fun ideas I had…and who doesn’t love shooting at the shore? Here are some of my favorite shots I took that day.
Model-in-the-making Devon, rocking an amazing Victorian-inspired dress:
These two pics are just so Jersey shore to me. As in, the actual Jersey shore — quirky, colorful, charming. Love the funky “fish scale” siding on this house!
Some fun, bright, beachy shots…
You’d never know these next two images were taken about 10 feet from a construction site — like, with a giant bulldozer lurking just out of frame. It looks so calm and secluded in these shots. I feel like tumbleweeds should be blowing by!
Same model, same dress, totally different vibe:
…and last but not least, model Gabby vamping it up under the boardwalk.
Every time I look at these, I have a new favorite, depending on my mood. Thanks to Cara for setting up this fun day and giving me the chance to exercise my itchy “shutter finger”! <3
