Los Angeles photographer Teddy Meyer, is known for lomo-style urban overlays.  From new angles, he shows us familiar roads, landscapes, and buildings in refreshing combinations.  Now meandering onto a new path of fashion photography, his images still tell a story.  To be lasting impressions, fashion portraits not only find beauty, they enchant us so that we want to buy a product.  How do you react when viewing the fashion shot below from Teddy Meyer?

    Kathleen, I’ve seen Teddy Meyer’s spectacular and colorful overlays, and they are flat out extraordinary. He draws me right into the moment. I see he’s put talent to fashion photography also. He caught a Bohemian innocence with the fashion model in “Algonquin Trail” and I would want to buy anything Native American– maybe the feather-like earrings!

    It’s cool that there’s just one long earring, and this small surprise adds grace to her thought-loaded gentleness.

    The ocean and boulder scene lets the viewer know the girl is one with natural surroundings. As she looks directly at us (into the camera) she’s welcoming me there, too. Although she’s beautiful, she has an ordinary attitude which in itself is meaningful and authenic, as if she’s been there before and will be there again.

    Yes, Janessa, I get the feeling she is not overrun by push-button experiences and pre-packaged ideas. I think youth wants this, too, and would buy anything this fashion model is selling!

    The photographer uses natural late afternoon sunshine which gives the portrait a timeless pulse of genuine humanity that triggers a second and third look.

    Hey, Kathleen– I know it isn’t your official weigh-in time (June 6th) but how is your diet going. It has been a week, and I’m wondering where you’re at.

    Reba, I lost two pounds this week. When I want to do something, I can be self disciplined. I think this is the key, not to go on and off.

    We can make it easy or hard– a level of consistency makes it easy. For me a food plan and journal is a must.

    Yup, yup. The ability to discipline yourself to delay gratification in the short term and enjoy the rewards in the long term is the indispensible pre-requisite for success.

    Thank you, Melinda. If I hadn’t lost weight this week, I would shift ratios of protein, carbs, and fats.
