First Photo shoot
Yesterday I had my first photo shoot with a friend and her two daughters.
Boy do I have a lot to learn! My amazing friend Genine let me borrow her new Canon 40D and her lenses (85 1.4?, 30mm, and 17-55?). Let's just say for me it was a bad idea to use a brand new camera and lenses in a situation where I really wanted to get the best shots possible. I realized how different cameras and lenses can be. I am very comfortable with my (50mm 1.8 and 100mm) but these new lenses. Ha Ha.
Almost all my shots were blurry. It was pretty frustrating. I did get to salvage some from the hundreds I took.
Then there is editing people. VERY different from editing still lives, flowers etc. I don't like the high contrast look in people the way I am with objects. Their is a lot of playing to be done to find what "look" I like with people.
Here are a few I have been working on.
