“Someone once told me that when they look at my work, it’s as if the people in the image are about to move,” recalls Becy Farr of Belle Art Photography. This not only resonated with her, it inspired her to begin shooting videos on her old Super 8mm camera. Farr’s artistic origins lie in filmmaking, but she moved to photos to master light. “But I still think like a filmmaker,” she says. Farr focuses on a couple’s passion and quirks, aiming to place viewers in the scene with them. Light, mood and atmosphere “with an almost dreamy and ethereal quality” reign supreme.
