I’ve been admiring the work of portrait photographer, Dani Diamond, for some time. I enjoy his ability to capture environmental portraits in a way that feels both genuine and eye catching. His work, like my own, is all about the person in the photo… but in a way that’s obviously distinctive.
Where I spend my days in a studio… he’s all about natural light. Where I need all the toys and tools to produce the shots I do… he does it with only his camera. Where I capture people in an artificial environment… he does the same out in the world.
I am both envious… and a fan.
That’s not to say I don’t like what I currently shoot… only that looking at his work, I felt inspired to temporarily push in that direction. I feel like I’ve been stuck inside for to long, especially after this past winter, and was longing for a style that allowed me a little more freedom. And I feel like it may make a great add-on to my existing headshot options.
So I decided that with the nice weather upon us, it was time to learn something new. Always pushing… always growing… I made it a goal to add natural light to my repertoire.
Brittney and Dahlia are friends of mine here in North Bay… are themselves best friends… who I’ve worked with a few times over the past couple years. They’re fun, beautiful, and confidently rock their styles… so in looking for models to practise this new approach one, I knew they’d be perfect. I was right. They absolutely killed it… and I don’t think I could have asked for a better session. Thank you both.
