Influences & Creative Objectives
This series had a specific model in mind when it was in concept. The preliminary shots to assess set and lighting were done with a stand-in, non-model. Ultimately, they had a more appeal and natural flavor than the model brought, so I ended up working from them instead. Initially the working title was "The Accidental Model" series.
Renamed "Indulgences" as each represents self-indulgent moments wrapped in music, reading, wine & cheeses, dessert and coffee. This series has helped me gain better control of more expressive looser brushwork.
