So many feels for this shoot highlighting artist Aleena Lay Webber's gorgeous work! Aleena is the creative force behind Three Corners Artisan, a local pottery & workshop studio in Chilliwack, B.C. Aleena and I have been shooting together the last couple years, and I'll be honest: often our shoots turn into giant, amazing hours long chats about creativity, project planning, and sometimes like the best kind of indoor lighting for a studio (the struggle is real: tungsten or daylight bulbs people?)
Aleena and I have actually done a number of shoots (and video work!) over the last little while, so I'll be posting those soon, too. Honestly, I could photograph pottery all the live long day - what people can make with their hands is AMAZING, and I love how every potter I've met is able to reflect their own artistic voice and style in the work they create. It's like photography: we all interpret our worlds differently, even when we shoot in the same space.
Something else to know about Aleena: she makes a mean cup of coffee. Dream photographer life: hanging out in cozy studios, watching artists work, drinking great coffee.
This was one of our first shoots together, which should give you a bit of an idea of how far behind I am in blogging.
So many people came together to make this shoot that we (ambitiously) tackled in a day!:
