Recently, I’ve been working on getting a small portfolio book printed up. It’s been a chore trying to create a well-rounded representation of what I’ve been up to this year. I’ve never done any studio work and I wanted my book to showcase some examples of lighted photography. So after a few phone calls, I had gear, a space to shoot in, and a couple of friends to take pictures of. My brother James kindly helped out as my assistant. Our friend Amanda was there as moral support.
In retrospect, I suppose it was kind of a momentous evening in my evolution as a photographer. Lighting felt very obtuse to me at the beginning of the night, but towards the end of the shoot, I was starting to begin to maybe have the slightest clue of what I was doing. I’m looking forward to having another go at things soon. ^_^
