Those Boots Were Made For...Well, All Kinds of Things
With this shot, specifically, I wanted to hide the fact that Amanda was naked. Not terribly high concept, but it was something I wanted to make sure I captured.
My fear is always that when my shots of Amanda naked will only be seen for the fact that she’s naked. I mean, she’s gorgeous, no doubt, but both of us put some work in making the shot good, and it’s entirely possible that’s overshadowed by the nudity.
Which, actually, that just makes me try a little harder, so I’m not complaining. Makes me step a bit out of my safe set-ups, try things I wouldn’t normally. It’s part of the challenge of shooting Amanda, in general, as she’s been photographed a lot, by me, by others.
Also, I really dug her socks/boots combo, wanted to get those into a shot.
