That would be me, right there! I am thee Vanessa Castillo. I am a photographer and videographer, specializing in anything anyone needs, if I’m capable. I am a University of Miami Alumna, and owner of Vanessa Castillo Visuals. I currently reside in Florida, and live in a studio loft where I get to create whenever I please, which leads me to yesterday… I’ve been a photographer for 8 years but I considered myself to be a “natural light” kind of photog. That being said, yesterday the 13th of February, I decided to play around in the photo studio, with strobes, self-timers and backdrops. The most challenging part of it was, EVERYTHING! I felt overwhelmed, but determined, nonetheless. I wanted to play around with self-portraits, in some way. Self timing it for 10 seconds, I’d go in front of the camera, pose and voila! I learned. I laughed. I had a great time with self. When I look at the photos I decided to mesh together, I notice a perfectly imperfect balance, in my physical appearance, and I love it. Here are some of the shots I captured.
