Linzey is always fun to shoot, not only because of his ability to take a great photo, but he truly embodies every character you tell him to be. I always have fun with him at every shoot, and I always get amazing photos. Even if I think we are done for the day, Linzey will have a crazy awesome, creative idea that I didn't even think of! As a photographer that is our dream. Give us some creativity as a model, and we can create magic on the other side.
In this blog I will show how you can go from a classic timeless look, to a retro "skater boy" shot. We needed some fashion shots and athletic shots for his portfolio so this was very fun for me. Outfits truly can make or break a photo shoot.
This shoot was on location in the same 100ft radius right before the sun set. I love shooting with natural light. It gives me some of my best photos when the sun cooperates. I find myself falling in love with natural light more and more each time I shoot on location photos.
The key is to FIND THE LIGHT and correctly your reflectors. My advice would be to play around with them and figure out all the balances and sun bursts you can create. Also try to become comfortable with finding your light before you use them. Otherwise the whole shoot will take WAY longer than you intended, and it creates a lot of frustration as a photographer when you can't figure something out in a fast manner.
Photographers, not ever think a photo shoot means ONE LOOK. These were all done within an hour and we had so much fun as well. I advise any photographer that has a shy model to play "dress up" in the mirror before the shoot.
Models, do not be afraid to think outside the box and be something your not. Sometimes this can help the creative process, and it helps with the nerves as well.
Bottom line is ...
This isn't rocket science, and you aren't being graded. Be silly, be you...HECK, be someone else for a change! Be creative and create art!
Stay classy my friends
