This blog will be a little different. It’s about doing something I love and didn’t realize until this year. It’s one of my photo shoots in which I asked someone to model.
Now selfies and nature are easy. You just need the right lighting and scenery, but shooting a person you want to bring out the best in them. There’s qualities of the person you want to showcase and highlight.
For Senait, I definitely wanted to showcase her. She’s been an amazing friend and person.
So how do you bring out the best in someone? Do you try to get them to see what you see? Or do you let them do them?
That answer I had to learn. I had my idea in mind but the best photos came from when she was in control. She is powerful, funny, and smart in every way.
In her element she is easy to shoot. She made it easy as a friend to get really good photos. Her energy allowed me to be at my best that day.
While she would be my first official photo shoot she will not be my last. She reminded me why I picked up the camera… to bring out the best in people and society.
