Every year I attend a conference for professional photographers.
That may sound incredibly boring to you. (For me, it's a chance to talk nerdy with my people.) Or maybe you're curious - what on EARTH goes on at a photography conference?
- we network with other photographers
- we meet our vendors
- we try new products
- we attend classes covering everything from business to technique to inspiration
- we eat
- we drink
- we don't have to feed our kids for a few days
- we don't have to do laundry (free t-shirts!)
- we learn from our peers
- we absorb like sponges new and different ideas and concepts
- we make new friends
- we come back energized and motivated and revving our photographic engines
- we also come back exhausted beyond belief
Oh, yeah. There may be a little bit of actual PHOTOGRAPHY going on, too.
This year I took several classes where we had models to photograph. I really love how the portraits turned out so I thought I'd share, just for fun. Today I'll share the senior portraits...
First, this is the charming Kent, our high school senior model from San Antonio.
This last shot, I asked him to look right at me and give me a stink-eye. He did. And then the crowd erupted in laughter. I kinda wish I got that shot, too.
Now. No offense to the handsome kid, but there's just SOMETHING about a girl in a gorgeous, flowing dress...
Allow me to introduce you to Georgeanna, our other San Antonio high school senior model.
I could have photographed this girl (and Kent, too!) all day long. But I couldn't. Why? Because THIS is what it ACTUALLY looked like at the shoot....
Surprisingly, no photographers were harmed in the photographing of this session. Much. (darn elbows)
I hope you love these shots... they WERE as much fun as they look. Truly.
Come back tomorrow -- I'm going to share some TOTALLY DIFFERENT images than anything I've ever done before. Curious? (evil laugh)
While you wait, here's another crazy behind the scenes shot....
