Brandi and Hannah with a Skull and Creating from the Hip

As I sit here and think about it, most of my photography (especially at the moment) doesn’t involve any planning. Considering most of my current output has revolved around my A Day in the Life series this makes a lot of sense, but the photos below don’t deviate too far from this practice.

I’m used to throwing myself into a scenario I know almost nothing about, including the subject, while having to deliver something that meets a certain level of expectation. I’m not implying this is unique to me, but that this process has its positives and negatives. One positive is that it challenges me to always be thinking creatively. A downside is that I don’t always hit the mark, as some situations are more difficult than others both technically as well as interpersonally. Though I hope to start developing some photo projects I have in mind, this “creating from the hip” approach is something I never plan on abandoning.

These photos of Brandi and Hannah were taken the other week at the same time as my last post. The three of us met up before heading out that night. But to give you an idea of how quickly this all happened, the time stamp between the first and last image I took that night was less than forty-five minutes. Plenty of time for some creative exercise.
