Musicians At Play ~ Olivia

I was very excited when I met Olivia at her studio and saw the beautiful piano and the large windows. Playing with light is my favorite thing to do! I enjoyed listening to a few lovely pieces by Chopin and Rachmaninoff why taking these pictures.

Thank you Olivia at North Hill Music for giving me a few minutes of your time!

This series is about music and passion. I simply record the musicians practicing in the intimacy of their home or studio. I come to the space for the first time, meet my subject and let the music and the light guide me to create the most intimate portraits of the artist, always unstaged and unposed. This project is shot at 35mm with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 in Jpeg Acros film simulation using ambient light and minimal post processing, if any. The point of the exercise is to spend time playing with my camera, not with Lightroom.

      • Hello Valérie

        Thanks so much for your reply. I think that all art should be for the artist. Thank you for the good you do for all photographers especially those like me who can only look on from a distance.

        All best wishes
