I was browsing through Russell James’s beauty, fashion and lingerie photography work today and I was blown away by his work. Particularly his beauty work. Its simple but dramatic and amazing. His story is really interesting as he is now Victoria Secret’s main photographer yet he is a Perth boy, obviously he has gone a long way! Anyhow it got me to looking through some of my old work from my previous life as a fashion / glamour photographer and I realised that the photos I liked best were the close up face shots. Why? Because you get a great view of someone’s eyes, its cliched I know but it is like your looking into their soul. If you can capture the eyes accurately you’ve got a fantastic shot. That’s my rant for the day.
Thanks for stopping by,
