Stylized Portrait Photography by Hedderly Photography

Inspired by a recent workshop I attended on stylized portrait photography, I decide to try my hand at one of my own. And since I have this lovely studio space to play in, why not do it now? I love how weather and time of day is never a concern–nearly irrelevant; it’s almost difficult for me to choose a time for the stylist (Megan) and model (Solange) to come over. I finally land on a time when we would all be, at the least, awake;-)Before these creative shoots, I always have an idea of what I imagine for the results. However, as anybody living in the real world can testify: plans rarely go as planned…. especially when planned. But this shoot is different: it’s experimental, it’s highly spontaneous; it’s meant to go off the rails in a completely different direction than planned and it’s encouraged to do so! Here we are. My beautiful bouquet of flowers are ready for plucking, outfits we may or may not use, and my ever gorgeous model who exudes excitement for what we had in store for her. Oh, how I love my own space (and highly recommend it)! I can set up exactly how I please. I can move/change/add lights, backgrounds, and props. I can adjust the temperature. I can even go directly to my kitchen, make myself a sandwich and eat while I shoot. I’m FREE! I think I know how William Wallace felt. Only in my version, I’m not so much fighting against the tyranny of England, but more so the tyrannical rule of the weather… and locations! You’ll never take my freedom! (go ahead, watch the Braveheart clip, you know you want to). This is such a far cry from on-location shooting. I don’t know if I ever want to go back…

Stylized Portrait Photography: An Introduction, with a Side of Flowers 

I am quite pleased with the results–more pleased than the initial inception. Better. Beautifully Better.
