Last week I headed back to Koreshan Park to do a photoshoot. My friend Sammie volunteered to model for me. (Thanks Sammie!) While at Koreshan Park with photography class the week before I saw a couple places I wanted to take photos at but I never got the chance to have the model pose at those spots before I had to run and go to work. Also I wanted to practice some of the things I had learned on the trip with photo class that guest speaker Mike Owen taught us.

I wanted to practice working with a model and posing a model because it is actually way harder than it sounds. You have an idea in your head how you want them to move and how you want the shot to look but it can be hard to explain to the model what you are thinking. Practice makes perfect though…The more you get out there and actually shoot photos and work on things like learning how to pose models the easier it all becomes.

I really need to invest in getting some reflectors. When I was at Koreshan with photo class we were using them a lot to create even lighting or to block the sun a bit because it was really bright out. It was the same situation when Sammie and I went last week. It was super bright and finding even lighting was a bit of a challenge.

It was a really fun day and it was a painless photoshoot. Sammie did a great job modeling and she was super easy to work with. It was funny because as soon as I started posing her for each shot it was like she figured out what I was going for and before I finished telling her how I wanted her to pose, she would pose the way I wanted and say “You mean like this?” haha I don’t know if she realized it but I did and I found it pretty comical.

It was a good day and a great shoot. I hadn’t seen Sammie for a while before we did the shoot and it was nice to catch up a bit and hang out while we got the photos. Hope everyone likes the photos as much as I do!
