I've been lucky enough to call Abby my best friend since we were seven years old. We met as gangly horse lovers, grew through all of our awkward phases together (looking at you, middle school), and now we're twenty-something, God-loving, art-obsessed, world-traveling women. That's really cool. Sometimes I don't know if we just got lucky that we are so similar now and met so young, or if our presence in each others' lives the last sixteen years meant that we developed under each other's influence and had no choice but to wind up being practically the same person. (Really, we even have the same personality type.) Our friendship has weathered different colleges, an entire year in different countries, and now different states. But we still love just taking fun pictures of each other, which is how I wound up in this biz.
I visited Abby in the beautiful art hub of Louisville, and we spent the day shooting in the dreamy Tim Faulkner Gallery, exploring new photo techniques, and shooting at... Lowe's. (You didn't see that one coming, did you?) Check out some of my favorite pics from the day, including some shot through a piece of copper piping, and one picture that is actually 25 different pictures stitched together. Can you guess which one it is?
First stop, Lowe's:
That one was shot through a piece of steel duct. So was the next one.
That one above was shot through a 1" piece of copper pipe fitting.
If you guessed ^that^ picture was the one that was actually 25 different images stitched together, you are correct! It was created using the Brenizer method in Photoshop, which has recently become one of my favorite things.
Here are some of the original pictures that were stitched together:
