I'm a creative gal, and I use a lot of my creative juices during boudoir sessions. Without my camera, I've been having a legit identity crisis. Who am I? Why am I here? How am I suppose to be creative? or uplift fellow women right now?!
Thankfully, I have a camera with me pretty much everywhere I go. We all do. Our cellphones can take legit photos now, as long as you know what to do with them, and other photographers recognized this. The FaceTime sessions were kicked off by Italian photographer Alessio Albi and now photographers don't have to lose their minds stuck at home without shooting.
This session was my first attempt at shooting via web cam, and I gotta say, it was so fun! I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. I have to give up a lot of control, which is not my jam, but this was a wonderful experiment.
These webcam sessions are a beautiful way people to connect, have fun, and do something creative during a time when that feels almost impossible. It added a little normalcy to my life, and I'm so grateful there's still (sorta, kinda) a way for me to shoot.
What do you think? Are these FaceTime sessions as cool to you as they are to me? Shoutout to Ginny Rosewater for letting me practice with her!
