First Studio Session Practice
This was from the afternoon before our first Studio Session which we booked with a Pro Model. We are members of the Pro-AM Photography Meet-Up Group in San Diego. We have attended many group shoots where Models and Photographers meet at a Session, on location or in a Studio and we exchange ideas, techniques and mutually help build our Portfolios. Often one can find aspiring Models who will work for free in exchange for a CD of your shots! If you would like to meet like-minded Photographers, I would strongly suggest you check out your own local Meet-Ups!
We are members of these two:

So, back to this shot! This was shot outside, flat knighting, no off camera Flash. Somewhat interesting pose from this young Model. However, the background is Studio like and could have been a lot more interesting. A combination of several off camera lights combined with a beautiful background shot with a 20-700mm at f2.8 would have made this model pop and would have been stunning. Lesson learned!
