Photographers have some knack for turning an already-wonderful scene into a more magical backdrop — thanks to the high tech cameras and editing software available these days. It will certainly be difficult to find professional photos that are flawed.
While we enjoy looking at the huge compilation of photos taken from the most amazing places in the world, one photographer dares to sway out of the norm and stage a photoshoot in ugly places. With the help of her friend, who sports a goddess-like beauty, the duo chose the most unexpected place to take photos and the results revealed the photographer’s true talent.
Turning a rustic place into a perfect background is Photographer Jenna Martin’s new specialty. She asked her friend Rachelle to model for her and picked Lowe’s hardware store as the best spot for her new collection she called “Ugly Spots, Pretty People.” Jenna wrote about the photoshoot:
“A few weeks ago, a model friend of mine, Rachelle Kathleen, and I were planning to meet for a fun little photo s****. Instead of searching out the usual beautiful locations around where we live, I had the idea to do just the opposite. I wanted to go somewhere “ugly” by all conventional photography standards, and then see what we could do with it, and Lowe’s seemed like the perfect option.”
Jenna and Rachelle surely took on a challenge when they chose a place that “made no sense for a photoshoot.” Since Lowe’s caters to a heavy population of shoppers, the duo came up with three rules to make their s**** smooth and perfect, and to show the world that any place can be a great location for taking admirable pictures.
First, the duo can only work with whatever was already in the place. They only brought a camera and left out the use of lighting devices and props. Second is to avoid making big changes to the location nor rearranging the displays. Finally, they should not disrupt the shoppers from their shopping so they agreed to stop shooting if anyone was in the background.
Working with these three rules, some outfit options, and just a camera, Jenna and Rachelle conquered the aisles of Lowe’s and took some amazing photos. They secured a spot at the store’s paint samples section, the lighting section, the store aisles, and the garden section. An employee noticed them and asked if they needed any help, and when Jenna told him they were just taking a few pictures in the store, the worker had a hilarious response, saying:
“Of course! I was just wondering why she was so overdressed for a trip to the hardware store!”
Jenna and Rachelle surely had fun in filming inside Lowe’s. Jenna even expressed her simple joy in doing the collection, saying:
“I have to admit, I have always wanted to s**** in front of these paint samples, so as soon as we walked in the door I made a bee-line right to them.”
