New photographer to DU

Hi everyone, I'm new here. I've really been enjoying seeing/reading everyone's photos and posts. What a great platform.

I just thought I would introduce myself and share some work.
My biggest enjoyment is creating art and conceptual photography. I really like taking a cinematic approach.
But to pay the bills, I do product and lifestyle photography, as well as headshots and family photos.

Website: https://www.oliviabakerphotography.com

some of my latest work




couple older ones:





What's everyone's favorite subject to photograph?

1. Good stuff.

I do nothing but RE nowadays, but back when I had my own studio, fine art nudes were my favorite thing to do. I shot my first wedding in 1990 for $100 so that should let ya know I'm an old fart now. Welcome to DU.

5. Well, I taught for many years so If you have any questions, feel free to hit me up.

From what I see in your post, it seems as though you you your chit together though.

edited to say that I didn't see your link on first viewing. I really like your eye for composition. Keep up the great work.

7. Welcome!

Great work. My favorites are the fishnet legs on the wallpaper and the red heels on the stove. Love the retro shots as well.

Keep sharing!

8. Welcome to the DU!

I love your photos, even the one with the flowers for a head. What were you thinking when you did that one?

It's disorienting for a second, but for myself, I'm seeing it as an artistic comparison between what we think is beautiful and what really is.

Personally, I like photographing nature more than anything else.

Thank you for sharing.
