Shoots/Inspiration

Through my last two years of high school I was really into film photography, and doing fashion shoots with my friends as models. I typically liked to do shoots that were on the darker side, or just weird.
For some reason that I'm still not sure of, I stopped photographing completely, and would only occasionally go into the school dark room to print from old negatives, and would soon become bored and stop again for an extended period of time. I never really tried to find inspiration for getting back into photographing, and would say I want to start shooting again, and then not make the effort.
I guess sometimes you have to let the inspiration come to you. Yesterday I was casually browsing flickr when I came across a wonderful shoot done by Alexandra Banti with her model Anne-Claire Bietzer.


Seeing these photos made me instantly want to start shooting again, and gave me all kinds of ideas for props and outfits. I can't wait to get my hands on a camera, and smell the darkroom chemicals again! 



Stay posted, and I may have some photos, old and new up, and check out the rest of Alexandra's photos at http://alexandrabanti.com/ ! She has a knack for it, and drawing as well!

So long,
Emilee
