It's common to come across a saying that states in effect; ten photographers can shoot the same model in the same location and you'll have ten very different photographs.
I'm influenced by photographers and models all the time, I will see someone's work in a gallery or on the Net and want to see more. There are a few I very much admire and follow because their work in my opinion is simply amazing.
These images are from a photo shoot I did with Pearl on Sunday, we'd talked about doing something inside, something different, we like to experiment and try different things in photography.
I thought about my art nude work and after we decided to shoot indoors I was thinking of all the photos I've taken though the years, at home, of family, where I had to use room light. I couldn't set up any studio lighting in these situations, the most I ever had was a flash for fill.
Shooting with the one light in the desert feels easy to me, but when you push yourself and work with people who also push it's a very good thing. While looking at the images after the shoot I realized how Pearl has pushed me to improve, and I don't really mean her personally, it's a combination of many things and I'm fortunate to work with people who will push me out of my comfort zone.

Anyone can take a picture...a person with a passion sees the picture before it's taken. - Anonymous
