First Official Photo Shoot

My goodness, I cannot believe 3 weeks have past since my last post. This past week was packed full of fun-filled events, one being my first official photo shoot. I had been talking with Dennis and Darien for several weeks about doing a photo shoot. They both needed publicity photos for their up-coming concert and Darien needed head shots. We planned to shoot outside on Saturday, but the weather was too unbearable. Instead, we settled for a well-light hallway and a silver door.

I had a very different connection and experience with both Dennis and Darien. This was a bit of a surprise to me, since we are all such good friends. We would shoot for 20-30 minutes, take a break, and then continue shooting. I felt that the pictures became stronger every time we came back to shoot.

Overall, I'm very happy with how the pictures turned out. I feel the pictures captured the individual personalities of Dennis and Darien. I would have liked some of the pictures to be a little crisper, but that could have been due to shooting indoors without a light meter. I am very excited to see were this next step in photography will take me. Thanks to Dennis and Darien for being patient with me and taking such great pictures! And thanks to my fantastic assistant for the day, Mr. Danny Stone!

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the shoot:
