Challenge Shoot – Whiteout!

Featured

I love doing “Challenge Shoots”! It had been awhile since the last time I had shot a Challenge Shoot. Last year was so busy and lots of things happening that I just couldn’t get very many done. I’m vowing this year I will return to taking on the challenges….

The first challenge of the year is a Whiteout theme…. traditionally when it comes to Whiteout Themes in the Winter you think of doing something related to winter, snow or ice…. But I started thinking what else is white that we see all the time? It’s simple, clouds… clouds are white! But who or what lives in the clouds?

The Story

What could be more whimsical than a cloud? As children we would gaze and wonder at these puffs of air laced with water, and dream as they took on mysterious shapes.

According to ancient Greek mythology clouds were not actually ‘clouds’ at all, but rather a group of young nymphs called Nephelai – the daughters of two Titans.

These cloud spirits – depicted as both young and beautiful – spent their days collecting water from the rivers, and then floated up to the heavens. When their pitchers were full they poured water down from the sky, nourishing the earth and feeding the streams of their brothers.

Perhaps this is the dream William Shakespeare referred to when he wrote: “That, if then I had waked after a long sleep, will make me sleep again; and then, in dreaming, the clouds me thought would open and show riches ready to drop upon me; that, when I waked I cried to dream again.”

 

Photo shoots don’t happen in a vacuum, I can’t emphasize enough how dependent I was on the team that made this all happen!

Best of 2017

I’ve shown a few “sneak peeks” over the past few weeks of my shoot with Kendall on Instagram, but now it’s official! Earlier this week I received notification that the “snow shoot” we did has been featured by Seniors Ignite in the Best of 2017!

We do get snow in Kentucky, but it’s often unpredictable (and we never know how long it will last). I didn’t want to take the chance of not getting a snow shoot done before the next freeze/thaw cycle. It just so happened that Kendall was available at the spur of the moment, and in less than an hour we got some great winter shots. You never how how long snow is going to last here! Just last week the temperatures were in the 60’s and today we had some little flurries. Needless to say, during the shoot is was cold, so afterwards we ordered hot chocolate and had a blast going over the images!

I really can’t begin to say how happy I am with the work we did together. Kendall was great and there were so many good images! Looking forward to the next time we get together!
