|Odell Park is a great spot for some nice lighting and wonderful scenery. Jess was quite patient with me while I got her to try a few poses and framing options.|
...From last time!
One of the things I learned from the firefighter shoot
, besides not liking the fluorescent lights, is that I need to spend a bit more time scouting locations for photos. When I start doing some serious work with models I'll need to have a small inventory of places that work really well for certain types of photos. I don't just learn by making mistakes, however. I have to make the conscious effort to correct them or I'll repeat them.
Jess and I love spending time together, and I hadn't really gotten outside much throughout the day, so I suggested we go to the park for a bit, in hopes of taking some photos of...well, anything frankly. I didn't have a 365 entry yet and needed to do some scouting. What I found were the following places:
|I really like the railing in the background, good for leading lines. |
|This was an experiment in texture contrasts. I tried to make Jess stand out against the harshness of the Elm bark and the soft bokeh of the trees in the background.|
|The geometry of these steps and the way the light was falling in the perfect spot made this photo work. Jess has a great smile too!|
These locations are all excellent spots for a fashion shoot. I've got some other locations that I'd like to work in around the Fredericton area so I'll have to scout them out too!
Thanks for reading, more tk...
