One Photo … Two Ways

The way a photo is edited can do a lot to change the feel, mood and general view of a photo! All part of the creative process.

I often like to look at a photo I like two different ways… whether it be a simple edit or drastic differences!!

Below I am posting an image I captured today … created with two very different feels!

Which do you prefer?

Hey… psssss… something new over there!!

This past weekend BelleMerci Photography (also known as ME) ventured into a new area of photography… and I think I might just be in LOVE!! Boudoir Photography! Combines portraiture and artistry!! I have never worked in a studio before so this opportunity was something completely new to me! So here I am today… ordering some constant lighting set-ups (another new love) and some backdrops!

RE-Inspired…. yes, yes I am!

I have decided at this time to make my Boudoir Portfolio accessible by PW only… just shoot me an email and I will give you the PW. If you would like to check it out and give feedback I would GREATLY appreciate it! It’s up there under PORTFOLIO…

CH-Ch-Ch- Changes…

The downside of being stuck in the house for weeks on end due to freezing temps and mounds of snow and ice… Re-evaluating life. Who else is doing this at this time of year? I find myself ordering college catalogs and researching online classes to improve my mood, awaken my brain and continue to improve my skills!

So I ask you, fellow photographers… do you think a Degree in Photography is the mark of an excellent photographer or do you think its a combination of skills and knowledge? Or just skills alone?

Feeling a bit frozen and stagnant at this time of year…. I need some changes and inspiration!
