Beauty In Distress

    Kirsten and I got together for a collaboration shoot at her house. The original vision that I had for this shoot didn't exactly go according to plan. But I think we came up with some beautiful alternatives that I'm really happy with.

    I incorporated motion into the pictures because it really reminds me of distress. As if the person moving is showing that their body is protesting their surroundings. When images are supposed to be a snapshot of a second in time, adding motion to the photo adds the element of capturing a few seconds. It creates a certain effect and feeling that you can't get with stillness.
