fast session

Often in photography we don’t have a lot of time to plan before we have to do a session. Also often because some circumstances we might have to run as fast as we can do deliver the image. While I prefer to plan a shoot way before, sometimes a photographer has to work fast. Here is a sample of a mini session.
10 minutes = 20 images.
This is Stephanie, and while she was assisting in a shoot for her mom, we made together a really quick session for her. It took no longer than 10 minutes to get about 20 frames that were good.  I would like to share today Steph’s mini-session. I am thinking it’s a very practical way to get some nice images really fast and if there is interest I will be doing more of this.

1) It’s very cost effective

2) Its fast

3) and it’s fun

Thanks for visiting.

Jessica and Brittany

Jessica and Brittany are two good friends. They are fun to work with. We ended up at the Provo Cemetery to shoot this session. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon.

I am using no flash here, the light on them is simply the light reflected from the little road right in the middle of the cemetery.

This is Jessica

This is Brithanny

we had plenty of fun doing the shoot.

Vanessa is my first Quinceanera model. I was very excited to photograph her. She is a pretty girl and I know her family very well.

I think is great when people bring a different outfit to change. Vanessa loves to dance!

The sun sets around 7PM now and 1/2 hour before and after the time the sun sets  is a great time to make this colorful frames.

Anselmo Part 1

Meet Anselmo. He has asked me for some photos for his model portfolio.

I think it works better when the model brings the poses. For this session he brought the poses and the outfits and myself ( the photographer)
The frames, the lighting and everything that has to do with making the photo.

We both spent a lot of time at this trail and fence. I specially liked the light.

At this time of the year ( December) the Utah Lake is frozen.

I thought it would be a nice mix with the model, boat and the frozen lake. Here he is laying in the icy frozen lake. We had fun
on the making of this photographs.

Thanks for visiting. you can see more photos of Anselmo’s session here.
