Beloved is the “missing piece” in photography
If you want your images to have more genuine emotion, Beloved is your answer.
If you want to never have to worry about being funny and having the perfect joke to get a laughing shot, Beloved is your answer..
If you want to have a way to move quickly through the awkwardness of being photographed, Beloved is your answer.
If you want to feel renewed by shooting instead of drained, Beloved is your answer.
If you want to feel like the work you do makes a difference in people’s lives, Beloved is your answer.
It doesn’t replace the need for good technical and compositional skills, but if you build that basic foundation, the Beloved technique is the missing piece that makes magic happen. Its like The Decisive Moment on steroids. Great composition mixed with authentic emotion, creating moving works of true art.
And just like the other skills that take time to strengthen, I’ve certainly found that Beloved is a practiced skill as well.
This session marks my 6th full Beloved shoot. It was monumental for me. Even though there is so many incredible things about Beloved, I felt in some ways that when I started I went backwards a bit in my craft. I was nervous. I was more reluctant to move around and vary my perspective and shots.
This shoot was a break through for me. I finally felt comfortable enough with everything that I began to bring back the “artistic” side of my perspective. I moved around more. I changed lenses. I changed locations. I finally felt a balance between the “craft of photography” and the execution of using the Beloved approach at the same time. It took time to get to this point and it makes me so excited for what is possible now.
Does the cute girl below look like me? It’s my lovely sister and her husband. I don’t think Lindsey quite prepared him for what he was in for, but by the looks of it, I think he didn’t mind :)
