Behind the Haze: With Kyle Take 2
Photography, for me, is not just about capturing a moment; it's about creating a story, an emotion, an experience. My recent shoot with Kyle epitomized this philosophy.
Kyle is no stranger to the camera. With his athletic build and distinctive long black hair, he's done some modelling for a few big brands. Our previous shoot was memorable, and we hoped this recent one would capture a similar magic.
Starting our shoot in Downtown Victoria, we centred our initial frames around the iconic Bastion Square. After wrapping up there, we went to Beacon Hill Park, anticipating a different ambiance. However, an unexpected thick fog had settled in, veering us away from the clear setting we had initially envisioned.
We immediately adapted to the situation, letting the unexpected fog become part of our shoot. Far from being a hindrance, the foggy backdrop accentuated Kyle's enigmatic aura. The misty surrounds lent the images a dreamlike quality as if Kyle was emerging from a distant, ethereal realm.
Every click of the shutter revealed a new emotion: introspection, determination, serenity. The fog didn’t just add a layer of intrigue but highlighted Kyle's adaptability and prowess in front of the camera.
The universe has a way of revealing unexpected beauty, and this shoot was a testament to that. Instead of a clear day, we got a foggy one. Instead of planned shots, we got spontaneous magic.
Cheers to Kyle for seamlessly blending into this unexpected setting and proving once again that in the world of photography, it's not just about the scene but the soul that inhabits it.
“Photography is the art of making memories tangible. Even the foggiest of days can lead to the clearest of visions.”
