I'm going to be honest: I don't love these images. I had an idea and a vision that didn't necessarily materialize in the way I was expecting. In fact, I liked my first milkbath photos better, even though I had a worse set-up. That said, this shoot was a reminder that experiments drive art forward. I'm a huge advocate of staying busy with personal work in between paid jobs because personal work is the core of my art. It's what has honed my style and sparked my ideas. So, if there's one piece of advice I could give, it would be: never stop shooting. Not every shoot will produce images you love, and that's okay.
