It’s been difficult to make a point to go out and take photos with a busy academic and work schedule, especially with the brief period of daylight available during the evening hours. As the temperature increases and daylight extends into the 6-7 p.m. range, photo sessions become much more accessible.
I’ll admit to being infatuated with the typical “coffee shop” portrait shot through a window. I know, it’s been done to death, but I just couldn’t resist recreating the hackneyed style for myself. Overall, the photos represent a slight deviation from the style in which I’ve been comfortable shooting. These images are a bit “grungier,” with a slight tumblr-photography style influence. I still prefer lots of cool tones in my shots, especially in this instance to serve as a contrast to the warm colors in the hair.
Overall, I had a fantastic time shooting in Downtown Bay City (despite the fact that I lost my keys during the shoot…which I later found inside my car).
