Last days of summer

Alex Orr at Petrie

I  once heard a Helmut Newton interview and he said”… if you can not find anything to photograph within 3miles of where you are your not seeing.”  I am paraphrasing and I could be wrong on the quote totally but you get the idea.

I love Petrie Island, every time I leave that place I see elsewhere to shoot. The days of summer are coming to an end, the days of being inside are closer then I like.

So we had some time yesterday Corey J. Stone (make up artist) and amazing beauty Alex headed to the island.  No lights, no reflectors we just shot, and 1 lens change.

“I always kept my equipment down to a minimum two cameras, each with three lenses, a flash that would clip onto the camera body, and one assistant. I did not want to spend time thinking about hardware; I wanted that time to concentrate on the girl and the world around her.” – Helmut Newton – On equipment. “American Photo”, January/February 2000

So we shot for about 2hrs and this is what we did.

Have a great weekend all.

 

Enjoy!

The desire to discover, the desire to move, to capture the flavor, three concepts that describe the art of photography. – Helmut Newton
