The term “prop” comes from the theatrical world and means any property or object that an actor uses to further a plot or story line. It’s also used in photography to help tell the story in the image. For instance, in this senior session, I photographed a senior who loves the outdoors, camping, biking, and generally climbing and hiking the mountains we have here in South Carolina. When I first met Addison, I found all this out and suggested to him that he bring his mountain bike to the session to help us tell his story. When I asked how he might carry his bike over rough terrain, he showed me and this picture was born!
This year, I have joined with 16 other photographers across the world from the Bloom Forum to make a circle of photographs with our blogs each week. In that circle, each photographer links to another’s unique interpretation of the weekly theme. I hope you will visit each of these talented photographers and view their work.
