Ok... so I screwed up my not yet existing consistency of writing a journal entry for each of my photo sessions, but once again I'll try continue writing.
This time I'll tell you about a session with Julia I had back in August. It was a really great experience of shooting somebody I haven't met before. Actually it is the same as talking to a stranger it depends on both of you. And if your model is not a talkative person you have to be hyperactive to make whole thing going on. But this wasn't the case and everything went pretty well.
For this entry(and for future ones) I'm just going to give you some key points I found interesting about a photoshoot.
First of all, I have to admit I love graffiti walls! They make an outstanding backdrop almost all the time! I'm getting a little bit obsessed with them and seeing one during a session will definitely result in a great picture in front of that. But one has to be careful with them(especially with light ones) as they grab a lot of attention from your model.
Secondly, shooting attractive and beautiful people makes a photographer's job a lot easier. You don't have to struggle to find angles and looks that make a person look attractive you have a little spare attention to spend on talking to a person and worrying about you light set up.
And lastly don't ever forget about ambient light. Play with it, use it it's free! But always match the color temperature of your flash to the ambient, otherwise you'll ruin the picture.
Well... that's it for now. Here are some shots from the session:
- Alice in chains
- The shining
- Heavy thoughts
