I've been thinking about doing some interesting personal projects for a long time. Editorial work has always been a passion and I love to bring it on location. Since I love the challenge of lighting in unorthodox locations, I have been thinking about finding some models who are as willing to experiment as I am. I found this interesting article on Photo District News about creating mood boards to work out conceptual issues prior to shooting. It is an interesting concept. I did this kind of stuff in project proposals for grad school, but haven't thought about doing it for myself since. At the time it seemed so tedious, but now it looks like fun. Interesting how those things change. I used to hate math in school because I had to actually work at it. Now that the ominous threat of underachievement is gone, I actually like it.
The images of the sketches look very much like some of the work that I used to do when brainstorming. Stay tuned. I just might be posting some sketches and mood boards for some photo shoot concepts in the near future.
