Photo Shoot at Wynwood Walls!
Last week, while the four of us were in Miami for Sharath Jois' last stop on his US Tour, we did a photo shoot with John Miller of Eyecbeauty at the legendary Wynwood Walls. We had a blast coming up with different shots to use on our website and social media. We wanted to capture our friendship, the love and dedication we have for Ashtanga yoga, and some good ol' fashioned fun. With a place like Wynwood Walls where you're literally surrounded by amazing art, it was easy to find creative inspiration.
It was a hot and sweaty evening in Miami... tourists strolled in and out of the Walls but everyone was super courteous about letting us shoot our photos without interruption. We did a few costume changes between shots and had to find creative ways to change clothes in public. There's the "surfer method" of wrapping a towel around your waist to change your pants... and the "let your friends holding a towel be your shield" method. Hopefully not too many bare asses disturbed the tourists as they gazed at the art.
There were a lot of things that could have gone wrong in our shoot. Our timing could have been off; someone could have fallen out of a pose early while our photographer tried to get the shot. Someone's form could have been off while everyone else's was on. Of course not all of our shots came out perfectly, but we truly had some great synergy going on between the four of us and our rad photographer, John Miller!
After our group shots were finished, we had a little time for individual shots. These will be great for our personal social media and marketing use.
In the end, it was a really fun, creative bonding experience for the four of us. We are looking forward to more photo shoots and collaborations to come in the future as we continue with the Finding Isvara project.
