In November of 2013, Edith Ross Photographer travelled to Vienna, Austria. What a beautiful city. The architecture, the scenery, the cleanliness, the music, the ‘properness’ of it all left an impression on me. Everywhere I turned there was beauty. Please come and see some of the sights with me.
Last spring I conducted a photoshoot that was inspired by the famous photographer George Hurrell. I have always admired the lighting and techniques used by the photographers in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s and have often been inspired by looking at the fantastic work they created. So here is my attempt at recreating some of the beautiful lighting that was used in creative works of the early part of the 1900s.
Last fall, I had the wonderful experience of working with a model who was willing to let me try my hand at something that I really hadn’t touched before. I wanted to do a shoot in the woods with a mystical, fantastical feeling to it. The day in Ayer’s Cliff was beautiful and I set about looking for spots on my land that would be appropriate for this type of shoot. I finally found a spot and decided to use the fallen tree and the canopy of leaves that filtered the light and was giving me the type of feel that I wanted to obtain. Below are a few images from this shoot.
