One of the things I’ve been wanting to improve on, is taking black and white headshots. I don’t know what it is about them but I love everything about them. Again, one of the things that has changed the last few years. When I started, I was all about color and avoided doing anything black and white. And now I get giddy when I headshots in the studio so I can play with black and white images.
Vania was in Salt Lake City visiting, I’d been wanting to practice with someone that was a little bit more comfortable in the camera. Boy did she deliver! When you try to learn a new technique, it takes a lot of practice. When I first started, I always practiced with my kids. As they’ve gotten older, they’re not as interested in modeling for me, little stinkers. So practicing on her was a huge win for me to practice my love for black and white.
I’ll see it now and I’ll continue saying it, nothing is better to me than a simple set up. A simple backdrop. I know there are so many amazing photographers that nail the fun backdrops and the awesome props, I’m just not one of them.
