Nikki: the first edits.
I bumped into Nikki on Instagram and instantly knew she was someone I wanted to shoot with. She has a unique look and is an all-round creative person: ex-dancer, currently a singer. I feel close, spiritually, to people like Nikki. I always feel the need to create something, be it photos or a piece of electronic music or a video. It's an itch that I can never completely scratch. But, collaborating with talented, gifted people is one way of giving that itch a good scratch.
The day last week that we had in the studio was total experimentation. We tried a bunch of things. Some worked, some didn't work so well. It was our first shoot. You're feeling your way on those occasions.
This is the first of probably a few posts about that shoot last week. These are just the shots I edited today. There are lots more good ones to share with you when I get around to editing them.
All of these were shot with my Hasselblad H4D-40. The Nikon shots I've RAW processed and will get around to the final edits this week.
