Naturalness (is that a word?!) is the goal. Most of us strive to make things look effortless on both sides the camera. Allowing your subject to feel so comfortable in front of the camera that you are able to capture their true essence. Katherine of Henry Photographers (she shoots with her husband) sent us in this stunning portrait session of Milena on Cape Cod. I fell in love with the timeless yet vintage vibe. The combination of Katherine’s photography and Milena’s ease in front of the camera make this a win-win.[blogshow id=b700 player=0 autoplay=0 toolbar=1]
How long have you been shooting?
I’ve had a camera in my hands as long as I can remember. My first time using a darkroom was in my photography class in High School.
Why do you shoot? What drives you? What inspires you?
I love being behind the camera and capturing moments in time. Lately, I’ve really been enjoying more editorial and fashion inspired work. It’s fun to tell a story through photography. Fashion, art, and design are big inspirations for me. I love reading through fashion magazines to get lots of good inspiration too!
Which camera/lens are your favorites and why?
For digital I love my Nikon D700. For film I have a lot of fun with my Diana F+. It puts really cool effects on the images with it’s light leaks you never know what surprises you will get!
Where do you look for creative inspiration?
Before I head out to shoots I love looking through my magazine and catalog clippings. I have a little binder going filled with fun images I see and want to save.
What personal work do you shoot? Any ongoing projects?
This year my husband, who I shoot with too, and I are doing a 356 days of photos project. We take one photo a day that shares a peak into our lives. It’s been a lot of fun to look back through already. We’ve been doing construction on our house so those photos are really fun to see. We also got a new puppy this year and the changes in him are just crazy!
