The Perfect Portrait Subject
Sharon Heit is one of those people that is easy to hate. She is incredibly smart and articulate. She is an amazing photographer and writer. She is funny and easy going. It just so happens that Sharon is also gorgeous. Because of these reasons, Sharon is a perfect portrait subject.
It is rare that a photographer is willing to put down their camera and allow another photographer to make their portrait. Needless to say, I was very excited when Sharon finally agreed to hop over to the "other side of the lens."
Not-So-Boudoir, Boudoir Photography
I wanted to shoot a boudoir portrait session with Sharon. But, I knew that I didn't want to photograph the cheesy boudoir that saturates the industry. You know, the softly lit of woman wearing their husband's work shirts as they lay on a white satin sheet set draped across a bed in a sun drenched room.
Instead, I wanted Sharon's portrait set to have elements of boudoir and fashion photography. I wanted a boudoir feel, but I didn't want a bedroom interior. And, as is my method of madness, I also wanted to incorporate some tomfoolery like multiple exposures and dragged shutters.
In the end, Sharon and I got a tremendous amount of imagery made in a very short amount of time. I love the variety of cuts we produced and am happy to share some of the images from our portrait session. Naturally, I am already looking forward to my next set with Sharon and am eager to see more photos of Sharon on the other side of the lens.
