On September 19th Stephanie Hardie and I went to Ferndale to explore the city and take some pictures. The last time I had done a modeling shoot was exactly 4 months before. I took the route of thinking without thinking and just worked off the environment. It wasn’t too difficult finding odd and interesting backdrops for Stephanie. I wanted her purple shirt to play off the green environment around us. Summer is coming to an end. I wanted these to be bright and extremely colorful. The odd makeup you see in a couple of these shots was an exercise more or less in pushing skin tones against complementary colors to get more detail.
