Putting fantasy into your photography is a great way to experiment and expand your vision. Think of it like this, scheduling a shoot that incorporates imaginative sets, costumes, or editing, will help you break free of photographic ruts. I think every photographer should try photographing fantastically at least once! What’s there to lose (besides money)?
In this video from the Slanted Lens, photographer J.P. Morgan shows you how he completed a cool Dia De Los Muertos photoshoot (and also dishes some prudent financial advice). The video incorporates very creative styling — for the skeleton mask painting, of course — and is a great example of how you can play with your fantasy impulses.
