I’ve been thinking about starting a cool series of photos for a while now. I wanted to give everyone an idea of how a photographer sees a scene. This has been something I’ve wanted to do for the past year or two, but I could never remember to get a photo of what a client may see. I recently had a session with my friend, Melanie, and she reminded me of exactly why I wanted to do this series. Unfortunately, neither one of us snapped a photo with our phones during the session. Melanie told me she was actually concerned about the location and timing of our shoot – clouds rolled in a little before their session start time which made it a lot darker than it should have been. She said that she thought it would be way too dark in the spot I chose to shoot at but she totally trusted me because I’ve done her photos a bazillion times and I know what I’m doing. Haha. I showed her the back of my camera after the first couple of images and her worries melted away. I think this was a prime example of the way the client and photographer view a scene for a photo session. When I look at a location, I look at it with my lens and the lighting in mind so I know exactly how it’s going to look before I even take the first photo. When Melanie was looking at the location, she just saw an overgrown area in the dark.
I’m still trying to think of what I can name this fun series and I’m hoping that I remember to actually take some photos or have my client take a photo before we start. The picture above is of Melanie and Trae during our session. It’s pretty good.
