I am never one to give away my inspiration behind my shoots for LaMode magazine but on this occasion I am happy and safe to say it is the amazing Bruce Weber who inspired this shoot. I always and hardly ever shoot in black and white when I lens swimwear editorials for LaMode but I thought since this is the last swim editorial for a while I thought I would go in a different direction for this shoot.
I use to read a lot of print magazines before the internet took over, but now a days I leave that to the pages that I have liked on my Facebook to see what is happening in the world of print. You see the longer you shoot the more you find that you will find inspo somewhere else other than another photographers work. It is a really good way of learning, but if you really want to develop your own style. Get out there and take photo's and sure enough your style will grow and if you shoot long enough it will change as time progresses.
Just on a side note some of this editorial was shot in colour and then flipped to black and white. And yes like myself, I am sure every photographer uses photoshop to a degree .....some more than others.
