When school starts, our high school senior sessions begin to end. That makes me sad because I get so much artistic fulfillment from them. Seniors give me the total freedom to be as creative as I want. They are old enough to follow directions and mature enough to provide me with a direction to follow. We get the "yearbook" photo first... but then it's total randomness.
Today's session with Becky was fun because much of it was a departure, being a shorter session and with an abundance of bright light to hand-hold the camera. I usually work into the evening hours for soft light, and use a tripod for tack-sharp images. But with the brighter light we had this morning I didn't need a tripod much, and can create much faster as well as make subtle changes on the fly.
We neared the end of her photo session when Becky suggested doing something with flowers. Ok, you bet!
