“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before”. -Edgar Allan Poe
Sometimes it’s fun to play with an idea. I have seen some great styled shoots and wanted to experiment a little bit. I had met a great artist that does zombie makeup. My friends Justine and Jay ( you may remember them from their Wubba Wedding ) got into zombie mode to be my zombies in love. We choose to do it during the winter carnival, on a freezing rainy day, with only about a half an hour. They did great! It was one of those days that really fun but super rushed, with so many ideas and the realization after we got back to the car all the things I wished that I had done. It is always a balance for me of getting the images that I see in my mind, with the constraints of time and place. It can be a challenge for me not to shoot it in the same way every time and when playing, to try new things, to push myself to see things/shoot things in an entirely different way.
