I had another great time shooting Kourtney, my 2010 High school senior rep. The first shoot was in my previous post, and had more of a country setting.
For this shoot, we wanted to do something urban, modern and ultra-cool. I think we accomplished that. We chose a perfect day to shoot- it was a cool Friday evening and the sun was setting just perfectly below the Houston horizon.
I’ve been so busy lately I haven’t had time to finish the rest of these, but they’re finally done, and I’m pleased with the results. If you’re viewing this from Facebook, please check these out on the Blog since Facebook is not nice to photos 🙁
Enough talk. Lets see some photos!
The image below has to be my absolute, hands-down favorite from the entire shoot. We were just about to leave and we were tired, hungry and ready to grub down at Katz’s Deli. I turned around and took one last look at the skyline, and decided I couldn’t let the scene elude me this night. Since it was getting quite dark, I broke out the tripod and after a couple of shots, it was chow time. I knew I had nailed the shot and couldn’t wait to get home to work on it.
I couldn’t have gotten the shots that day without my awesome assistant and V.A.L. Kameron, Kourtney’s older brother. A “V.A.L” is a photog acronym-ism that stands for Voice Activated Lightstand. I believe it was coined by the Strobist blogger, David Hobby. It’s certainly appropriate, since I would vocalize direction, and the V.A.L. would respond by re-positioning the light. Awesome. 🙂
Thanks again Kameron, you did a great job!
I also got some super slick Senior Rep Cards for Kourtney to pass out to classmates and friends. It’s a two-sided card with rounded edges and comes with a trick carrying tin to keep the cards all neat and organized when you carry them around.
Since Kourtney is my Senior Rep, it has my contact information as well as a discount coupon that other Seniors can use when they come to have their portraits done at Slick Pix Photography. I’m going to offer these cards to all Seniors to pass out to their friends, but with less branding and a variety of photos on them.
