I had planned on doing a photo shoot featuring my cute sweater back when I posted about it but didn’t get a chance. My model, i.e. Emmanuelle, wasn’t “available”. I meant to try again yesterday but the weather wan’t cooperative. Emmanuelle’s hair would have looked really cool in the wind but it just wasn’t safe. So we did it today. I already had a lot of respect for photographers. I have even more.
I was looking for a nice setting and thought I had one. We have a big rock in our back yard (and our front yard for that matter) and lots of greenery. And a fence. Somehow, when looking for a spot to shoot, my eyes don’t see the fence. They just see the grass, plants, and trees and think that I can make it look like a forrest. And then I take a picture and I see the fence. And then there’s the issue with creating pretty picture that still shows off the sweater. With a model who just stands there and looks at the camera. I made the choice to have her play with what yesterday left all over the yard and just shoot her constantly. I filled up the memory card with pictures and then went through them.
We started on the swing because that’s what the model wanted.
But then, an intruder showed up…
