I am taking a short break in my post processing to post this entry. As I was sorting some of the latest photos I took, I couldn’t help but notice that I have quite a lot of shots where you can see my models laughing or making fool of themselves. Sometimes it is just because they want to be silly and have fun, but on lots of occasions it’s because of one of my stupid remarks or my goofing around.
I like when people are comfortable during a shoot. I know that it’s not easy to relax in front of a camera, especially if you are not normally used to it. And sometimes even shooting can be a very difficult task. Depending on the conditions, your mood or your client’s / model’s it can rapidly turn into something awful.
But I never think of shooting as something difficult or boring.
I really enjoy shooting, I love goofing around and capturing fabulous moments. It’s just the best. Shooting is not a constraint or an obligation, it’s not even a job for me. For me it’s just pure fun. And I believe that somehow if I am having fun, my models and clients also do.
I have been shooting a lot lately, and yet I just can’t wait for the wedding season to start to shoot even more! I have a lot of pics to show you but in the meantime you’ll only get to see me goofing around during a studio shoot.
Photos are from Manou. Arr.. I need some real, serious headshots of me…
