This weekend, I attended an event I had been looking forward to for a while! The local Fresno Digital Workshops Meetup Group had a photo shoot meetup with real live models! I have wanted to do more portraiture lately and this was a great opportunity for me. I also got meet some other local photographers and I plan on attending more meetups + workshops in the future (there’s a great one on Creative Lighting I want to attend.)
Portraiture is my favorite type of photography! I don’t get too much of a kick out of nature or action, but I love making a connection with my subject and capturing their essence.
I was bummed cause I left some weird lens on my telephoto lens and it made all my closeups. Boo! I was upset with myself, but I guess it’s a lesson learned.
I am so inspired after my session that I bought a big reflector and stand. I can’t wait to take more portraits. I have one with my friend Tar’lese coming up. If you are in Fresno and would like to work with me on a portraiture shoot, send me an e-mail!
I’m so excited. I’m inspired to take my photography to the next level!
Until next time Swellions!
