Weekend Influence: Josh Kucko

Josh Kucko 🔥@_superchuck_ 🔥 is a photographer based in Saint Petersburg, #Florida who is completely enthralled with his work. He has used photograph to push himself as a creator and as a person. “I’ve never been comfortable around people, and originally started taking photos to get more comfortable in social settings. Everyone loves having their photos taken, and I felt like I could do well as the introvert behind the camera. As I’ve gotten older I’ve grown tired of the party scene and really wanted to bond with people who were more creative. Photography has allowed me to become more selectively extroverted. “

  “Hey everyone! Josh Kucko here with the takeover. Im happy to have the opportunity to show some of my latest work, and share some of the creative magic that’s happening in the city of St. Petersburg, FL. It’s truly a city where everyone is an artist. Hope y’all dig my work and don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you have!      I made the switch from shooting digital to film a couple months ago and have barely touched my digital since. Main reason being that I’d spend hours editing digital images just to get them to look the way film does naturally. These shots were the first portraits I’d taken with film and I love them. Which do you prefer? Film, digital, or both?”

  “Adding props can take a photo to the next level. I am drawn to fabrics especially, I think for the feminine element they can impart to an otherwise masculine scene. Fabric adds dimension, texture, movement, and a pop of color into an image to make it more moving. It smooths out the jagged edges of an otherwise rough image. I was happy that    @andy.barness    Was cool to experiment with the fabrics and was pretty satisfied with the shots from this set. What are your favorite props to use, or see, in an image? Does anyone spend as much time at JoAnn fabrics as I do? I should have one of their rewards cards by now honestly.”

 “BOOM! 🔥  It’s important to me to work with models with a sense of fashion, the more unique they are, the better.    @jonathan_fils_cleo    is tops in the fashion game, loved shooting with him and got tons of killer shots. There are a few burnt out shots in this set that occur naturally in film photography where light leaks come through and affect the film. Dig it. ”

  “Last up is my most favorite Puerto Rican lady out there, my main model, creative buddy, and idea trading friend    @aliciamakes    she’s responsible for more of the strange ideas I have and keeps pushing me in my creative journey. Everyone needs a creative influence in their life, and this girl is mine. She’s top notch. It’s been real y’all, thanks for your time, and thanks for the opportunity    @influencehumans     🙏🔥✌️💅💅💅”
