Colors of Summer Aesthetics

Photography |

This photo series was simply inspired by summer & all of its colors. The goal was to photograph a diverse set of models wearing the colors of summer in unique locations around the city. Each model brought forth beautiful forms of self-expression & art to the scene. This project took about three months to complete & wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for their collaboration! I couldn’t be happier with how I spent my summer; creating art & connecting with these beautiful women.

  • I used a Canon 80D to photograph these models.
  • The newest lens in my camera bag is the Canon 70-200mm 2.8 zoom lens.
  • My Canon 85 mm 1.8 prime lens is my go-to portrait lens.
  • I consider my Canon 24-70 mm 2.8 zoom lens to be my powerhouse lens. Perfect for any situation!
  • Reflectors come in handy when needing some fill light.
  • Every photographer should own a gray/white balance card. These help white balance and correct exposure.
  • An external flash comes in handy whenever you’re in low light or high sun situation!
  • I always have extra SD cards in my bag, I prefer to use ones with high transfer speeds.
  • Extra batteries for your flash are a necessity!
  • I love a good camera backpack with a lot of compartments!
