I'm going to end this series with my favorite. Although I haven't done that much model shooting, I know enough that you can't really create stunning work without a connection. The photog and the model have to connect, even if it is for the most fleeting of moments.
Thank you, Valerie, for the brief connection. I hope I did you proud!
Well, I wasn't planning this series, but I'm pretty excited about it. Last week I learned that there would be a Comicon event in Seattle, and so with a couple of friends we went to shoot it.
I fell back on my model shooting skills, learned in California before I moved to Seattle. I have to say the young people were just great. To get a blog worthy image, this is a tough environment. You have just a few seconds with people. They are on their way to one of the event halls, and you stop and ask them for a shot. There are a ton of people around. So it was a challenge!
Very sweet, and wanted to be seen!
So we'll have several days of interesting portraits coming up!
While strolling through the Brooklyn Bridge Park I came across many people shooting models, friends, wedding parties - you name it! It wouldn't really be polite to jump in and start shooting away at someone's model though.
But as I approached this one, there was no way I wasn't going to sneak a shot of these boots. Sadly, I don't have a memory of what the rest of her looked like. Someone that would wear these has to be interesting, wouldn't you say?
