Jaclyn Easton

Awhile ago, a friend asked me to do a shoot for her. She need a new headshot, and I needed to update my resume. The shoot ended up expanding beyond the original intent.

As a photographer I felt that I needed to work on my sense of the bigger picture. Over and over I have been told to fill the frame. And while that is a great hard and fast rule. I wanted to let my audience see the environment that my subjects were interacting in. I needed to find the median between focussing in on the subject, and giving them a sense of space. These images are my ongoing experiment on how to best achieve that result.

I tried to incorporate a mix of focal lengths in the shoot. Jaclyn wanted a headshot. So while I tried to get those shots, I also took a moment to step back and work outside my comfort zone.

live your life!
