First Studio Session Practice

First Portrait Attempts

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.

  2. Shot looks great! Thanks for the link also. I’m in SoCal, but SD is a bit south so… maybe I can find one closer or even in OC 🙂
