[Week #27, Roll #34, Shot #4]
I felt like I was in a rut the past few weeks. I was tired of just taking photos of scenery. I hadn’t done any portrait photographs in a while. After I did the photoshoot with Erin, I realized that I wanted to get back to doing more. So, I put out a call to friends on Facebook and ask if anyone would like to step in front of my camera. The first one to respond was Ann.
I haven’t know Ann for very long. I met her at her birthday party last year. She was sharing the party with a mutual friend of ours, who’s birthday was close to hers. I remembered her being amazing gorgeous and having an overall cool vibe about her. So when she stated that she was interested in me taking her photo I jumped at her offer.
We met up at a coffeeshop in town and used a corner table there for our photoshoot. We sat across from each other. Her being the model while I played photographer. Since we didn’t know each other that well, I feared that it would be awkward. In 1.5hrs I had shot a roll and a half of Ann sitting across from me. I could have shot more but we spent time, in between shots, chatting and learning about each other. Becoming friends.
It is when the camera seems so trivial to the connection of photographer and subject that a great photograph emerges. That connection is why I like taking portraits of people.
A good portrait and a small photoshoot article which i like most and always search for… To share and to learn…
