Danny : senior shoot

Since we've began our dive into the world of photography, Marty and I keep a mental checklist, a "must-remember-this" list of all things photography-related. Things on the list range from certain types of shots that are really important to a couple on their wedding day, to what aperture setting is best in direct sunlight, to what mega-bucks lens I absolutely have to have by next weekend... you get the picture :)

One thing we've added to our mental checklist is the importance of making your clients feel relaxed when you're snapping their picture. Sure, it sounds like a no-brainer, but it can definitely be tough at times, especially when there's only one person in front of the camera! (Weddings are simple, because the bride and groom aren't interested in anything else but each other... cutsie "I love you" shots and beautiful smiles are easy to come by!)

On Saturday, we shot Danny's senior photos. We really wanted to emphasize the different sides of Danny's personality: his deep, pensive side, as well as his fun sense of humor. The deep shots were easy, but capturing his lighter mood was a little tough. Because of this, Marty had to jump in and resort to some extreme measures...

HAHA! I guess it worked :)

Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot:

Happy Monday!!
