a study in motion part 1

a study in motion part 1

this photo study is inspired by my affinity for jumping photos and love for studio photography selects that are more candid, in motion, or in between poses. super special thank you to my buddy minnow park for indulging me in this photo series and shooting with me.

there's something delicate and fascinating about a garment, accessory, or chunk of hair floating through the air, a subject caught on camera while he/she isn't expecting it—as a super meticulous virgo who loves planning, there are so many great unexpected things that can happen that are simply by chance or when you just let go for a second and throw things quite literally up in the air.

* full disclosure: periwinkle is super transparent and an entire bottle + 1-2 tablespoons of the rockabilly blue yielded the slightly greyish blue on the top of my ponytail. i'm still experimenting with how to achieve a dusty blue / dusty lilac best—will be trying a grey mix next, but am open to suggestions if anyone has recos!
