Paint the Moon Photography
On another note, one of my lovely co-workers is leaving the nest and taking another job. We had a going away party for her, and I snapped some pictures. Most of them were of her cutie patootie son.
I then sent a call out to my Facebook friends to get some subjects, so I could stop harassing my dog. An old classmate of mine sent me a message, and I secured my first human model.
I studied some poses but nothing could really prepare for how hard it is to make your subject feel comfortable while also getting shots that look good. I felt so awkward because I had no idea what I was doing, but you can't learn if you don't practice right? All in all, it was a good learning experience, and Cassandra was a great sport! We took the pictures on the civic plaza in downtown Murfreesboro.
Editing a human subject proved quite a challenge, and I learned that I have one fallback action that I love using...CoffeeShop Sun Kissed. So for now, expect a majority of my pictures to have a sun flare in the background. I might even use it for inside pictures :)
