With Finesse On Top

Another photo shoot and another great learning experience. What did I learn today? I learned that my wife and I not only make a great team, but we have some amazing friends willing to help us in our quest.

One of Kymberli's co-workers and our friend, Christina Ross, mentioned to us a few weeks back that we should head out to Venice, CA and do a shoot with her. We graciously accepted and today was our date to test our skill and hone our craft.

Today I learned that having a beautiful model who knows what she's doing can really make a difference in how much you learn. I'll admit that I am good at landscape and nature photography, but photographic people has always been a challenge. I guess that's not totally true. I can take a picture of anyone, but to get them in the right pose is a challenge. Christina was a huge help in getting us over the 'posing' hump. She knew how to pose, have fun and give us tips on where she should stand. Thank you for all of your help, CR! The other amazing thing was that shooting Venice and Venice Beach is so damn colorful and cool. There is a plethora of shooting opportunities. You just have to open your eyes!

I am posting a few of my favorites from today. I am sure to post a few more during the week as a process these.

Love the photos! I really love the photo with me leaning against the wall that shot as well as the first one are my favorite so far! You and Kymberli got some great shots and I had such a fun time! I can't wait to see the rest of yours and Kymberli's work as you build your portfolios.
