So, since I basically know no one here in Sarasota besides my parents, I decided I would start looking around for models who were interested in shooting portraits for their portfolios and mine as well. I signed up on Model Mayhem to see if I could find anyone locally who would be up for some low key shoots. After looking around for a while and not getting anywhere I kind of put MM on the back burner as a resource. After RMSP I updated my page and took another look around still not getting much response.
Someone however, found me. We set up a shoot and it went really well. It was a little weird to be the only one on this side of the camera after 5 months of group shoots and having an assistant at almost every set. It went really well though, just had to slow myself down a little and make sure I was getting lights and reflectors where I wanted them, which was difficult without the help of modeling lights. More thinking, less chimping. Anyways, the shoot went really well and got some great images out of the session. Here’s a few of them to check out.
