"I feel that photography is the process of creating a moment, and then capturing that moment and making that moment permanent. I always enjoy the result, the individual image, series or story, but it is all that goes into achieving that result that I relish most. The thinking and mulling over creative concepts, the problem solving and strategizing, manifesting an abstract vision into a tangible reality, even working out logistics like scheduling and scouting out locations are all rewarding to me in their own right." -Joe Quinto
When shooting Abby, I wanted to show her natural beauty. With broad, flattering light sources, I wished to accentuate striking eyes and cheekbones, while showcasing beautiful skin, eyes, and smile.
Above all, I wanted to convey Chris’ personality through these photos. Some of the most emotive images of Chris came as he was interacting with another member of the crew, who was off-camera.
I saw that the smoke from the cigarette Steven was enjoying while I set up was catching the light in a very cool way. The existing fluorescent light fixture not only made the smoke look good, but also contributed to the almost eerie rim/hair light.
