romantic: conducive to or characterized by the expression of love.
I’m not going to lie, I went into this shoot a touch nervous. It’s easy to get comfortable in what you know as an outdoor photographer, in regards to lighting your subjects, posing around a background and more. When I found out that I was going to be shooting a dimly lit indoor space and working with an artificial lighting vendor, I knew I had to prepare myself for a new shooting atmosphere. Even as a skilled photographer who’s been shooting since 2007, I’d highly recommend having the Dawn Charles Guide to Camera Settings (or any good guide to shooting manual) as a refresher course to watch over every month or so. After a long time of shooting with a new Nikon, I found myself getting frustrated. It turns out, you can’t know what you don’t know! Take the time to do some studying before every shoot, and slowly your work won’t frustrate you and all you’ll feel is the excitement. You’ll be able to achieve the outcome you’re envisioning for your images regardless of where or what you’re photographing.
After TBD Events connected with me about this collaborative shoot, I couldn’t pass up an already styled and scouted shoot. 1,746 images later, the shoot was over and I was headed back to Bainbridge. If I had to sum up this photoshoot in one word I’d say romantic. Big thanks to all of the participating vendors and models, Courtney, Jamal, and Chris.
