This is my 50 thousand word essay about Susan
If the hypothesis of this essay is not clear and has not been proven by the end of the essay… then I give up on photography.
OK so for the end of Bootcamp we had an open invite to photographers and models to come out to the salt flats and do pictures.
Someone had a cool car and so we took some picutres.
I held true to the believe that you don’t need to be right next to the cool things in your picture. So I had her stand apart from the car.
I lit her up with a light and the car as well with another light.
Turns out it’s hard to get a black car lit up nice at night.
These are pictures taken from the event mainly from interns. A couple of them are mine but mainly their just edited by me.
I’ll let the interns talk about what they did in later posts.
See the rest of the pictures here.
Really what can I say here to do this picture justice? … what can I say to do the whole evening justice?
Both of the models… (Yeah you can’t wait to see them, I know… me either.)
Am I just caught up in the epic-ness of the evening and the photoshoot and the wonderful people… or is this really as awesome as I hope it is.
Just don’t hate me for having the best job in the world… a chance to be an artist and to make others feel beautiful… to share and give and to be appreciated.
I haven’t even checked all the pictures… I have no clue if this is even one of the best pictures.
Remember back in the day when I talked about how individual portrait shoots or modeling shoots are pretty easy.
Well I don’t get to do them often with all the other shoots going on and since I’m known mainly as a wedding photographer.
Well Jenny convinced me that I should take time and at least do her’s.
She did a good job because in a week where I had 8+ photo shoots I fit her in for a nice long shoot with 3 outfit changes from direct sun to shady to dusk and even night with lots of off camera flash stuff.
It helps when you’re with good company.
Jenny is working on a fitness show and I wish her all the luck in the world with that.
Tell her how beautiful she is and perhaps even how Amazing My work is. haha
BTW, I stand by what I said this kind of individual portraits is so much easier than weddings or shoots like that, but there’s something about weddings that make them worthwhile… oh yeah and they also pay better.
That being said I’d take nice paid portrait/model shoots any day if anyone is looking.
