Brooke Shaden

Having unfortunately missed Brooke’s talk at creative futures this year I headed on over to her website to check her out and I have to say I wish I had not missed it, all of her shoots start off by her writing down five key categories, each category gets about thirty seconds, anything that comes into her mind in that thirty seconds is written down, she then chooses one word from that category until she has 5 words, she then proceeds to create something to tie all of them together to create her photograph, the five key categories are Colour, Setting, Prop, Theme and Wardrobe, this is an interesting way of stepping away from the norm, by this I mean just pointing and taking a photograph, Brooke’s way helps to create something different, almost magical in the finished article, it gives inspiration which leads onto creativity and ultimately will make you a better photographer.

I will be visiting her website regularly to watch her videos and listen to her talks as I feel that this would make me a better photographer over the course of the next few months.
