We’re officially into April now, and TJ and I have finally started shooting outside again. But, as I write this on such a cold, rainy day, I am grateful for the teeny 5×7 foot “studio” space where we’ve taken to hiding.

FringeLiterally, it’s just the space between our living room and office where we hang a backdrop and then clean up a lot in Photoshop later. Without it though, we’d have spent March barely clicking a shudder.

Fringe FringeIt wasn’t even all that cold the day of this shoot, but there was so little to photograph outside. The woods were still blanketed in dirty snow, street corners harbored brown-tinged piles of ice, and I was feeling uninspired and wimpy. So, after completing another set of shots with Sam, I made a big pile of random materials I had lying around the apartment and had her flip her hair while I snapped a few shots. Luckily Sam has a pretty gorgeous head of hair on her, so we got some memorable photos.

Fringe FringeI have to admit that being so limited in terms of space has been a really great opportunity to pare down and focus only on lighting, posing and color, without the need for location hunting and finding the exact right spot for a model to stand. So I guess it’s not a bad thing for us to hide indoors just a little while longer…
