When two of the nicest people you know act tough
Part of the fun of doing a photoshoot is the opportunity to wear things and behave in ways that one’s normal life doesn’t allow. Costumes, props, hair, makeup, all can make one look dramatically different from how they present themselves in their normal professions. Here, there are no limits. You set the rules for yourself. If you can put it together, we’ll take the picture. There’s no judgment coming from my side of the camera. You be whatever or whoever you wish to be.
So, in the midst of acting silly, Jane and Kat decided to flip to their tough personas. Sure, in real life they’re both sweet as molasses. Well, sort of. Never forget that Kat’s a Marine and can genuinely kick your ass if the need arises. Still, that’s not an identity she wears on the average day. Jane donned a leather jacket (with sparkly pink boots) and Kat stole my hat (because it matched her corset) and away they went.
One caveat to Jane’s pictures here. This is really a set that needs to be viewed on the largest screen possible to look good. I was pleased when I edited the images, but seeing them on my phone hurts my eyes. Please, do us both a favor and find a desktop.
With the external stresses of this past week, and the inevitable stress of the week to come, we need fun moments like this to alleviate some of the pressure. Sure, there are plenty of moments when art and photography need to be serious. This isn’t one of them.
