Throwback Challenge results

Well, Gabby and I are sticking to our word - below you can see our first three attempts at recreating our worst shots. I think I speak for us both when I say we needed this challenge. I have been struggling with creative ruts (read more about these struggles in my blog and it turns out Gabby has been dealing with a very similar issue. We started the challenge process together by using each other as models for our first photos - we were able to talk through the creative ideas and truly understand what the other was envisioning. We are both proud of what we’ve accomplished so far and would love to hear creative thoughts, suggestions and ideas from YOU - leave a note for us below!

Even though we are only half-way there we are already thinking of ways to keep the creative flow going!

Throwback Challenge

Background I have been doing photography for roughly ten years now. I have been doing it but not very well.. So after a deep trip down photoshoot memory lane with my photography/videography friend Gabby Mcgarry. This challenge was born. We each picked seven cringe worthy photos from our past and had to create shoots inspired by them. Theses were all taken in like 2010/2013 so much improvement and education has happened over the years (thank god). After digging deep through private facebook albums and we selected our seven. After that long process we moved on to the shoot direction. For each individual photo we made a corresponding Pinterest board, which I turned into quick little mood board images. All can be see below!

Over the next few weeks Gabby and I will start scheduling and creating our reshoots with a couple rules in mind. At least one element from the old image must be repeated in the new, if it was a self portrait it must remain a self portrait, and to get creative/have fun with it. With those parameters in mind let’s just say we are both pumped to get started.

(none of the inspiration images are our own and were found on pinterest)

(also thank you to all the original models in these photos you trusted us and for that we are grateful)
