Hello, blog-land! As you know, I am sort of a novice photographer. A lot of my friends are actually photography majors or professional photographers. Yet, for me, photography is a hobby. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to get better, though (double negative?). Today, I went to a local mill and learned a lot: 1) lighting is a bitch and 2) capturing personality is a test. I worked with one of my muses, Shanan, as I made her change in and out of outfits. Despite how well she worked with me, I found that only about 10 of my 100 pictures actually looked good to my satisfaction. Even then, I had trouble capturing her personality.
Above is how I see Shanan: happy, carefree, exciting. Yet, it took me a while to capture this image, and I’m not really sure why. I’ve known this girl for about 5 years, now, so you would think I’d know exactly what to do. Hint hint: I don’t. Art is art, and art is not easy. Yet, I need the practice, and I would like to, hopefully, take some pictures for people in the future. So I am exploring different ways to have people pose, which is somewhat difficult. Also, these pictures will be featured on my Facebook page, so please visit the page to see more of my other works!
As always, comments are much appreciated! And when I say comments, I also welcome criticism!
