Zac and Vena: Sneak Peek

Zac has been one of my closest friends from high school and he came to visit over Thanksgiving. Unfortunately for Zac he came became a test subject for my studio class.

I really never know how to tone engagement or wedding photos. I feel like there are million ways and styles, but nothing really fits me. Essentially that is my life story;I've never really fit anything.

More over Zac and Vena endured the cold and my commands to just relax and at about an hour into photographing it all came together. They became relaxed and I started making the pictures. You can't fake intimacy or chemistry, so when it clicked I stalked them through the viewfinder allowing them to do what was natural.

Thank you Zac and Vena for dealing with cold and uncomfortable poses. I hope you enjoy the sneak peek of what is to come.

Illustration: Cleaning Products Going Green

I used a piece of white cardboard to make a cyc. I front the products from above and filled in the right shadow by placing a piece of white cardboard right to reflect some light.
