I got around to editing a few more images this weekend from my recent photoshoot working only with a Canon 6D DSLR. The digital workflow still, and probably always will, feel a little bit foreign to me. I always get this sense of detachment from the process. Like somehow I didn’t get my hands dirty enough. I realize that is my own personal hangup and I don’t mean to diminish the hard work and skill that photographers who primarily work in digital mediums often go through.
Probably my biggest challenge during this particular shoot was the incredibly bright and harsh sunlight that I had to work with. Even though we were working at eight o’clock in the morning the sun seemed incredibly bright and harsh and it was difficult to find places where I could take advantage of play with the light. The thick trees helped with that a little bit but we had to play around a lot with body positions, twisting and turning in order to make some interesting shadows that worked well with the model’s figure.
