That takes us to our first concept shoot with my new friend Sam =) If you've never heard of a concept shoot or a test shoot, its when we come up with everything for the shoot...from what the theme of the shoot will be, the kind of styling we want, the person doing the hair+makeup, the guy(s) or girl(s) that'll be modeling for us and lastly location. Then after all that is figured out, we (the photographers) try to execute it. Of course on a bigger scale (say for a client like J.Crew or GAP) this gets more complicated but i guess this is what you can call "practice" =) For more details from a pro, click here.
This was a few week of work rolled into one long day so a big thanks goes to the team involved...you guys are awesome! =)...
Assistant: Kim Ugale
Hair+Makeup: Jo Mari

1/5th of a second...
and finally at .3 of a second.
Remember how I mentioned that shutter speed is how fast you want the shutter of your camera to open and close?! Well what I wanted to do in these shots was capture the motion of the ferris wheel. At 1/13th of a second I was still getting a pretty "still" image so all I did was change my shutter speed to go slower and slower. Simple right?! Oh and btw, this shots would've looked way cooler on a tripod. **One quick note to keep in mind: notice how the longer I left my shutter open, the brighter the shot? Well that's cuz the longer the shutter is open, the light enters the camera** I always tell people, don't be scared to play with your camera settings. Yeah it could be tough sometimes, but like the cliche says...practice makes perfect. =) My next post will be on Aperture so stay tuned! =) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - --- - - - - - -- - - - - --- Don't forget!
