Meet Megan Crothers. She is a born artist and photographer and has been a hidden talent for far too long. Megan gathers inspiration from everywhere, but usually happens upon a outlandish outfit or odd prop at a thrift store, and builds a shoot from there. She is incredibly innovative in achieving a unique shot. She's made a dress out of Polaroid pictures, created a spot light affect by climbing into a park tree with a flash light and snapping the photo simultaneously, made an outfit entirely out of moss, tossed a bucket of water at her photo subject in perfect unison to a timed shutter to capture water in flight, dragged a bathtub to the beach for a whimsical shoot, and even pained a line of blue paint across a model's eyes to create surprising contrast.
Fashion photography is often lumped into the realm of vanity, given a negative connotation. Few women could say they have not had one point or another felt bad about themselves after flipping through fashion photos in a magazine. Megan's work, however, proves that fashion photography can be used to bless rather than beat down.
Second, her photos bless by request. Most of her shoots have been of her friends. Guys and gals who have (for the most part) never been asked to be the subject of a photo shoot in their life. To be asked alone is a gift, hugely flattering. Megan truly sees others with the eyes of the Creator. She sees the beauty in all people, views them as God above does. With the way she frames the face through angles and lighting she makes them into part of her art. To be a collaborative element to someone's art...there are few greater gifts to be given.
