It has been nearly a month since moving into my new studio space. And what an exciting month it has been. I have had multiple sessions each weekend with a variety of animals and personalities. It has been an amazing experience and makes me hopeful for what the rest of the year is going to bring.
I was fortunate enough to have one of my fellow photographers take some behind the scenes video (to be posted in a futureA simple set
blog post) and photo for me while I was shooting a session.
I am NOT one to be in front of the camera; I'm actually pretty adamant about not being photographed (that's why I make my career from behind it!) but it is important for us, as photographers, to let people see what goes into making our final images.
It allows them a small window into what we do, how we do it, and why we do it.
Sometimes, the best images do not have much of a formal setting at all. It could be a simple backdrop or chair with natural light.
Can you tell I like being on the floor with my clients? Great shots are achieved from all kinds of perspectives. Don't be afraid to get down and dirty.
Its all about capturing the light, the pose, and the personality of your subject.On their level
The resulting photograph from these behind the scenes shots can be seen below. Hard to believe huh?
The perfect shot
