I did a shoot yesterday at the park with Jill. It was a beautiful, warm sunny day! yay :). A bit windy but we made it work and we had fun. Jill is an Artist and an Art teacher and she needed some pictures for her new website. I really wanted to capture Jill’s personality and style. People’s expressions, body languages and even their clothing directly reflect their characters and lifestyles, but it is also up the photographer to capture all that in an accurate way so it can be transmitted to the public. The type of photographs people include in their business websites are very important… they should not be merely lifeless-possed headshots, especially if you are an artist. The images should convey effortlessly your personality, style and most importantly, your essence, so your audience can have an intimate feel for who you are before they contact you or use your services.
I love Holga and Diana cameras! they are so fun for creating artsy images, and I thought it was great that Jill brought hers. The Holga added a fun and creative element to our shoot 🙂
Even though I feel like backlit images lately are overused and overrated, I still like creating some of the them from time to time… I like the ethereal feeling they produce.
As a Physics aficionado I really loved the atomic-style logo of the Pablo’s Cafe. So fun! and I thought it was great as a backdrop too.
Afterwards we went to Pablo’s Cafe. It was my first time there and I loved it! I am definitely going back. I loved the drinks, the atmosphere and the admixture of geeks, artists and intellectuals 🙂
