Early on in the year I was asked to be a part of the August Collaboration with 14 other photographers across the country. The idea was 1 crown, 15 photographers, 15 concepts to all come together into one beautiful project. I have always wanted to do an Ophelia inspired shoot and I found this was the perfect opportunity as the theme “August” defined something “majestic” or “awe inspiring”. My interpretation was Ophelia Rising, so to have her come alive from the water seemed pretty awe inspiring to me! My niece was visiting and she was the perfect model for me! As we were headed out to the lake I decided to go to the field first and I am so happy I made that quick decision. Though these were not included in the collaboration I do find them too purdy not to share. Hair & Makeup by the talented Caitlin Murphy. These were all shot with my Mark II and the 85mm 1.2L. I am swooning over the clarity and do every single time I use this lens. These were all shot at 1.6 and the sharpness is just phenomenal!! I will also add that I purchased the Mark III and the clarity is pretty insane, plus the shutter sound is different and I love it! Llake photos to follow…!! Happy Friday!
