Photo Spotlight: Brooke Shaden

   A friend of mine mentioned how she was heading to Dallas to model in a workshop for "the one and only" Brooke Shaden. Of course I had to check out her work and I'm so glad I did! It left me speechless. Too bad for me this was during one of my random 3AM wake ups and I spent the next 2 hours mesmerized by her dreamlike imagery. I was actually kind of hoping they would give me beautiful and stunning nightmares.

"Imagination Island"

"Emergence and Disturbances"

"The Path of Lost Souls"

"The Research Laboratory"

"The World Above"

"Rise and Fall"
"The Sharing Game"

"The Inconvenience of Spirits"

"My Little Bluejay"
"A Story in Older Terms", self portrait

   As you can tell, it was really hard for me to only pick a few favorites. I am in love with her work. This might be caused by my love of sewing but the fabric in these photos is incredible! I always wonder if the photographer directs their models for such stunning poses or if they just do as they please. I was really surprised to learn that most of these are self portraits. Please check out her website for her full gallery. Her sold out workshops sounds like an absolute dream. She provides the location, models and props along with breakfast and lunch. All you have to do is bring your camera and a tripod. One of the locations was an abandoned hospital in LA. I'm so intrigued by her creations. It makes me want to go home and spend all day on Photoshop. Thank you for the inspiration, Mrs. Shaden.
