New and Old

August 16, 2012

I love trying to incorporate classic photographic qualities with modern techniques- keepings things fresh, while maintaining a traditional quality that makes a photo feel special and timeless. Photography has come a long way. There is something heart-warming about looking through old wedding albums; I remember looking through my parent's wedding album from the early 80's and it's soo crazy to see how much photography has changed!

A friend of mine told me about Ars Magna and I was very drawn to their artistic style. I'm particularly fond of Allana Taranto's (owner of Ars Magna) color work. Sometimes the color looks super digital, and other times, it has a film quality to it, which I absolutely love. Although, I'm a fan of highly saturated images, as well, it really depends what kind of mood I am. I love going with the flow and letting inspiraton take over. Sometimes it comes from the lighting, sometimes it comes from nature, fashion, or a mood. Either way, I let those triggers-whatever they may be-take hold.

Below is a picture from Ars Magna and I love how when you first see it, you can't quite tell what the white speckles are- snow? rain? stars? It's such a magical photograph!
