We woke up before the sunrise. Our bodies tired but excited. We had driven by this field of sunflowers all week and couldn’t wait to shoot the sun rising in them today. That was the motivation that got us out of bed knowing we had a long day in the workshop ahead of us after our shoot.
As photographers we like to push ourselves to shoot differently, and to always be trying to be uncomfortable. since we aren’t use to working with professional models we thought it would be fun to try and collaborate with Shima for images that push us to move in a direction different than what we feel safe doing. So we chatted about the look for the shoot, piled into our rented car and headed to the field.
Even though the sun never made much of a grand entrance like we had hopped what we got was unexpectedly quiet and smoldering. Sometimes the accidents are better than the plan.
