One photographer has set out to prove you don’t need a beautiful location to take amazing snaps by holding a photoshoot inside a Lowe's store.
Jenna Martin is a photographer based in Billings, Montana who normally specializes in fine art and underwater photography. But for a recent experimental shoot, Martin decided to pick the least photogenic place she could think of to use as her setting.
Writing on her blog about the decision to shoot at her local Lowe’s store, she details how she aimed for “horrible lighting and limited backdrops.” Ultimately, the brief was "somewhere that made absolutely no sense for a photo shoot."
Enlisting the help of her model Rachelle Kathleen, the pair decided that the latter should bring just a couple of outfit changes, and that they wouldn’t take any professional lighting equipment with them. The two of them worked their away around the store, using paint color samples, shrubs, trolleys, and the light aisle as their various backgrounds and props.
Speaking of the biggest challenge, Martin said the aisles were the hardest to work with:
Horrible lighting, lots of plastic surfaces, really nothing that would be considered aesthetically pleasing, but that was the point. This was the essence of Lowe’s, and we wouldn’t have been doing the challenge just to steer away from it.
