I very rarely get the opportunity to do portrait photography. Most of my people photos are random, quickly taken photographs in the street. Recently when talking to a student, Imelda, who is taking an art and design course at the college i work at, she said she’d like to do some modeling. So for once i had someone to photograph.
We discussed it more, and as she really likes photography i said she could use my old DSLR for the day, after we’d finished the modeling part. This gives me the opportunity to also offer advice if she needs it, and to talk about her photos, so hopefully help her to develop her own style and improve.
Here’s my favourites of Imelda from the day.
Although not part of the photo shoot, i couldn’t resist this one as Imelda sat with my old camera and used the screen as a mirror to check her hair.
Such vanity 🙂
We had a really good day, and a lot of fun. Hopefully we’ll get do more, and i can get her out and about to try different places and styles of photography.
