Centralize: Introduction

Michelle Ton

Surprise, surprise: I have a new column! In the past, I focused on how my photos were impacted by different settings, but this time around I am focusing on my models. I will be shooting with a variety of models and centralizing the shoots around a prop, which the model will pose with. By shooting different models with the same prop, I will bring out each individual’s own uniqueness and creativity. I want my column to go beyond photography; I want to see how models approach the shoot when they are given the freedom to explore a shared idea. Every person’s mind is different; my goal is to see how thinking patterns differ from person to person when they are given the same prompt.
