When I work this way, all the photos get all mixed up in my mind and I think of the time as one larger project or body of work. I get confused about where I even am. Am I in Baltimore or LA? Am I shooting with B1's or handheld Quatums? This week, am I staying home or getting on a plane? I just keep shooting.
As I edit I add images I love to my favorites folder. Here are a few favorites from that folder. So much new work!

I updated www.leahfasten.com. There's a bunch of new work under >NEW< that I've shot over the last few months. And I added a new gallery highlighting all the new sports and fitness work I've done. It's called "With Strength". Have a look.

I've been shooting a ton of personal work and a ton of work for clients and a ton of work that isn't really personal work per se, but more like me just making pictures because that's what I do. The last six months have been all over the place; A few school libraries, a huge ad for a bank, a personal project of families wresting, Maxwell and Jackson's trampoline, a big annual report, execs on a seamless, my favorite gym (and trainer), a cross country train ride, Tempe... I know I'm supposed to really focus and shoot one kind of thing really well... but this career is so much more fun shooting all over the place. Here's a gallery of some favorite new photographs. It's called "new". Everything's from the last six months or so.
I walked down Hollis street to Yuzu Ramen. I'm moving studios soon. I'll miss this walk. I like the way the light hits these flowers. | September 19, 2017
We wondered what would happen when we photographed everyone doing flips on the trampoline with the sprinkler on and all the strobes firing at once. | September 4, 2017
