Guy in hair school photo shoot

I did another photoshoot with a friend when she came down from the “big city” last weekend. I’m not happy with how the photos turned out – tell me what you think?

I couldn’t cut her hair, only style it. If I could have cut

her hair I would have fixed the symmetry and weight of her fringe.

Also, that big split between her fringe and the rest of her hair in the second photo bothers me! And the whole thing imho lacks a concept. I was like:

“Ok, I don’t know what to do. I’ll just curl hair until I figure out what I’m doing”

15 minutes later:

“I still don’t know what to do, so I’ll just fluff up the curls while I figure out what to do.”

15 minutes later:

“I still don’t know what to do. I’ll just start taking pictures and something will come to me.”

/sigh

The lack of direction is obvious in both the hair and the photography. It’s bland and soulless, and I know I can do better! I just need to get better at expressing myself through air. If hair is a language, I can passably carry on a conversation with someone now, even if I have to run back to the dictionary every now and then. But I need to become fluent, and lyrical.

Actually being artistic is hard.
