How Brooke Shaden Creates Beauty Within The Darkness


Sony Artisan Brooke Shaden is a fine art and conceptual photographer who brings visual ideas that come from her imagination to life. She approaches her storytelling by ensuring there is a metaphorical interpretation so that everyone in her audience can be a part of the experience. Using a Sony mirrorless camera and mostly a single 50mm lens, Shaden places herself in a scene that she constructs through photographic frames and post-processing composite work. Her art is as stunning as it is original. As a mentor in the Sony Alpha Female program, Shaden is also working to help other artists to realize their potential to Be Alpha and to find the importance in their work.    

"If we can gain that respect for ourselves and knowing that what we do is important, then it will help other people."

What does it mean to find beauty within the darkness? Get a look into Sony Artisan Brooke Shaden's process and imagination as she describes how she creates her richly-tapestried images.
