Pictures for the Month of March - 2012
I've been a little remiss in updating this blog during 2012. It's not because I haven't been busy, but quite the opposite. Every week I'm reminded to get something out but time just seems to slip away. So here's my attempt to at least get some updates to you.
The highlight in the month of March was a senior shoot for a family I have known for some time. We included some standard studio shots, some railroad and rural shots, and some in the town of Royse City, Texas. This is a beautiful little rural city just outside of Dallas with some really nice historical buildings. These buildings made for some colorful and textured backdrops that were perfect for a senior shoot.
The family is graduating triplets, so this was a bit unusual. We wanted not just images of each, but of the three together as well. Our time was compressed into a single day and only for a few hours. This is not what I would prefer, but it was the constraints I needed to deal with. Due to these limitations my studio shots were few and the railroad shots were in bright sun. Again, not what I would prefer but we made it work.
Below is my favorite from the shoot. The triplets are one girl and two boys. I'm a little partial to shooting pretty girls, so it should come as no surprise that this would be one of my favorites.
Another of my favorites are of the three on the railroad track. We wanted to symbolize them leaving home. I think it worked pretty well. It was also used on the announcement for the same purpose.
This was in bright sun, as you can tell by the sky. Placing them with the sun overhead and left really helped with their exposure.
Finally, here's one of them next to a wall in downtown Royse City. I thought the background was perfect with good texture and color. The sun was also shaded by other buildings.
