I was asked to participate in Adobe Photojam, a creative conference sponsored by Adobe. We were given the title concept the morning of the event at 8 AM, and I concepted and executed the entire shoot that day, before arriving at the conference by 6PM. For this timed challenge I was given the title "It's Only Natural" to base my shoot off of, and was told to interpret this however I felt it related to me.
My approach to "It's Only Natural" was to ask myself, what comes natural to me? Studio lighting and fashion was the first thing that came to mind. It is only natural for me to want to shoot with strong, stylized lighting, and to put a fashion twist on it. Strong backlight, colored chalk, and talent that was willing to dance in the light is what I came away with.
The shoot was a success for me personally and I came away with something I found exciting. The most inspiring thing for me was starting with nothing in the morning, and by the end of the day ending up with something beautiful.
