This past weekend I attended a small get together with some photographer friends and a few models that I had never met. It was great seeing my friends (plus they let me shoot in their nifty studio right here in Baltimore). I also got to meet Isabel Stone, a musician and traveling performer. She had mentioned that she needed some shots of her with her autoharp, which I don’t think that before that day, I knew what it sounded like.
I love seeing people passionate about what they do- be it modeling, photography, music, or whatever. After taking a few of Isabel with her instrument, I encouraged her to play and I could capture her while she created. Isabel began to play the autoharp and sing – and it was amazing. Her voice is so soulful and beautiful, and with her autoharp I was truly in love with photographing her. It really shows that she is passionate about her music.
I love the spontaneity of meeting artists at group shoots. I don’t tend to plan what I photograph at these events too much, as I love just meeting a person and just creating. You should really check out Isabel’s work (she actually has a show coming up in March, details below). I would love to hear what you think about the images or even if you enjoy her music as much as I.
Want to see Isabel live? She has a show on Thursday, March 10th at Gallery 788 in Hampden in Baltimore (at 8pm). If you can’t go, you should check out her ReverbNation:
