It all started on Twitter. I tweeted that I was bored and wanted to shoot. Denise twittered back that she wanted to shoot too and suggested we go out and shoot each other. How fun! But, then I thought about it. Wait. I have to get in front of the camera too? The only reasons I agreed were 1) Denise (of Denise Bovee Photography) is a fantastic photographer and she’s very good with posing single subjects (which I think is one of my weaknesses) and 2) As a photographer, it’s really good to be in front of the camera every once in a while. It really helps you to remember the awkwardness that your clients can feel if you don’t help to make them comfortable.
We had a ton of fun together looking absolutely ridiculous to anyone who passed by seeing us shooting each other in our crazy outfits (there’s a reason I don’t wear dresses when I shoot) and getting all dirty lying in weeds and on burnt trees. I got a little scared when I heard a pack of coyotes that didn’t sound too far away and Denise got a little freaked out by a homeless lady who kept watching us. But, really, it’s not a good shoot unless you have a run in with wild animals or homeless people.
Below are my favs. I’ll let you know when Denise posts my pics!
