In my ongoing journey to find my creative spark once again, I booked a last minute session with Diana McQueen. I literally put out a model call on Saturday July 16th, 2016, Diana answered the call and we did the photoshoot on Sunday July 17th, 2016. Why have I been booking these last minute sessions? I really don't know, it's probably due partly to procrastination and fear of not creating something meaningful to me.
So what did learn during this creative session with Diana? I learned that although in my mind I feel that I have lost my creative spark, I know that is not true, especially when I get a subject in front of my camera. I say this because of this simple fact - I started out this session thinking that I may get perhaps one or two meaningful images that I can use, but it turned out that was not the case at all. Once Diana and myself started, all these creative ideas just started flowing, it also helps that Diana is so easy to work with. So bottom line, am I back to my creative happy self? No, but I am getting there one photoshoot at a time.
One theme that I have noticed in these impromptu creative sessions, is that I chose to do these photoshoots in a studio environment, which I generally veer away from as I find these types of settings more challenging creatively. This was my position prior to my creative problem, so it's very interesting to me that I have defaulted to the one environment that I have found to be the most challenging from a creative perspective.
Diana McQueen, thank you so much for helping out with this crazy last minute photoshoot, finding the wardrobe so quickly and being such an amazingly easy person to work with.
Chris Lewis, a wonderful down-to-earth person and a great photographer/videographer. Thank you so much for coming out and assisting me with my last minute photoshoot; it was really great to have a helping hand while I figured out my creative map.
