eawmusic asked: Fantastic photos, I love the framing! When you do a shoot, do you have an idea or theme laid out beforehand and then get the model, or vice versa? What has worked best? I'm hoping to do my own shoots soon, any and all advice is welcome!
Thank you first of all! And I never really have concepts except styling for locations. Let’s say I’m shooting at the beach then I tell the model what I looking for , as far as clothing, and same as if I was shooting in an urban environment. Once I’m out on location everything is on the fly.
I’ve been doing this for a such a little time that it’s all learning for me as well and finding what works and what doesn’t. Funny you mentioned my framing since I think that’s my weakness as I tend to shoot tight and I’m trying to learn to shoot wide and open up the fame as it has been limiting me to certain poses and such. So it shows each person looking sees something different.
But the best advice I tell everyone is to shoot, shoot a lot, and don’t give up when things don’t work out. You’re only going to grow by practice and there will be failure but it’s how you use it to learn and grow that will make you excel.
