My very first shoot in the new studio yesterday! Actually, my very first studio shoot ever. Not bad for a total newbie, eh?
Parker the resident studio pup. Libby my client’s dog.
I’ll post and write more on studio stuff soon. But here is a sneak preview to whet your whistle. 🙂
Parker. Shop dog. Fergie’s new buddy and stealer of Starbucks breakfast sandwiches. (Parker, I was eating that). He was my model for 5 minutes before Libby showed up. Dogs with furry faces are hard to photograph- in the studio is no exception I learned.
Libby. My client’s super sweet (and extremely obedient!) lab mix pooch. I couldn’t have had a better dog as a newbie studio shooter. Libby is awesome.
This shoot was for a small commercial job with both Libby and her mom, but I couldn’t resist taking some of just her alone. How cute is she? And I worried I wouldn’t be able to get dogs to smile in the studio! Pas de problem. YAY!
I decided to take some behind the scenes shots to show y’all, since I know you have been wanting to see my new studio. It’s a pretty amazing space. But remember, it isn’t all mine! I share it with 4 other amazing photographers who I will tell you about soon. I swear have learned more from them in the past couple of months than I have in the last 5 years combined! Look how good Libby was while I took these shots. I said “stay” and she stayed. Yay.
Check out the photographer’s-dream cyclorama wall. I would have used it but the floor is duuurty right now. (Hence the reason for my shoes sitting just off the paper, so that I could walk on it without leaving footprints). Actually, Rocky and I rolled on a coat of primer yesterday after my shoot and after we get a coat or two of paint down it will be looking much better. I have another studio shoot mid-week next week and I may just use the cyc wall if the floor is looking pretty. There is lots of experimenting to do!
Happy Friday! Hope you all have a lovely weekend! 🙂
