I’m getting closer and closer to what I’m looking for. Tomorrow I’ll have “the big test” in which I’ll have to shoot two models to prove that I can work on my personal fashion project. I can’t tell you who’s the client yet, but you should know that the project is really interesting, I’ve already worked on few ideas, and it would keep me busy for quite a long time. All this said, you’ll see how important this assignment could be in my path to became a full-time (and full-paid) photographer. Especially if you take into account that, besides being a joke of a country, Italy still plays a crucial role in the business of fashion, and so fashion photography still is a good business here around.
So, at day three of studio lighting and modeling studying with Julia, this is the result. I’m already pretty happy, though I know I’m still a few steps away from what I’m looking for, and thousand of miles away from the Good Stuff. But, right now, I feel like everything has a chance to work out, that I could eventually end up doing some good, and that the future isn’t so inaccessible and evil as it seemed just a few months ago.
Fellows, what else should I say, I hope you’ll enjoy this portrait, please cross your fingers for the test I’ll have tomorrow, and stay tuned. I’ll definitely keep you in the loop!
