|San Diego at Night from Seaport Village|
I worked with instructor/photographer and pretty darn good quad-copter pilot Eddie Tapp. I want to be Eddie when I grow up. Go ahead and click his link and look at his work. Eddie’s assignment for me during the week was to concentrate on my backgrounds. So I shot a few goofy pictures of palm trees sticking out of models heads, haha. It actually helped me.
The models were terrific and very easy to work with. Clare was a natural model, 16 and going to be a high school junior, which is hard to believe because she acted like a professional and was a very nice young lady. I had a running chat with her during the shoot about life and college. I guess I must have used my teacher voice, ha! She didn’t need much direction, but one I did ask her to pose was what I called a “Betty Grable” which is what I call a pinup pose made famous in World War II. She said, “who’s that?” Yup, she is 16. Anyway, I showed her… then she did this ===à NOT BAD!!!
