This week, I had another chance to shoot with the wonderful Rachel. There is a fun little side street in Old Roseville that has some great colors and textures. Rachel brought her "up for anything" attitude and we had a blast. It's always great to work with someone who is the embodiment of joy. We shot in the alley, dodged a few cars, and had some 'hair flipping' moments. I couldn't ask for a better shoot! Thank you Rachel.
Soft and Sultry was the theme of a meetup I attended in Roseville. There were around 10 models posing in lovely dresses in different settings all waiting to have their picture taken. They sure didn't have to wait long with about 18 photographers around eager to snap them up. This was a curious adventure for me. Each model tries hard to pose and be beautiful, while paying attention to each phototographer clicking away. It was . . . interesting.
Hard rock, but super nice. These guys contacted me to to shoot their band photos for their upcoming album, "Until the war is won." We met in an abandoned and burnt building for a series of profile and group shots. These guys were a blast to work with, they really got into the shoot. We tried a lot of creative shots and I think the final images turned out great. For some hard rock check them out at www.shadowkillerband.com
Today was my first shoot with someone who wasn't a member of my family. It's a scary thing to start down a path that forces you to share your art with others. What I do, what this path is about, is asking someone to join me in crafting, capturing and sharing special moments. There can be so much fear and doubt in this process for the photographer and client alike.
