Blog Fest A
I was introduced to Emma McDonald’s photography by Mrs. Stamper and I love her photos. Her photos are more of a pin-up, scene, retro style. I love the way she plays with the lighting in her photos. She has used light from behind the model, beneath, and out from objects (like drawers, bathtub, or a dryer). I love her models, they are all very fierce edgy women. She plays with the idea of the roles of women. She features the house wife, working women, seductress, and women of nature. She puts a lot of thought into her outfits. The photos featuring the “house wives” are dresses in simple clothes, even one is in a wife beater. She also uses a lot of retro clothes, fur, jewels, and flowers.
