How To Find A Model In Five Words Or Less!

We did it, well sort of. Not the best shots we've ever taken but some keepers. Michael has been hitting the Rosetta Stone a little harder than expected and used a couple more than five words. We actually got some people to pose and jump which was great so don't be too harsh!

In any case, the main point behind this video is to show that you shouldn't put any barriers between you and taking pictures. We are in a foreign country, we speak barely any spanish, and taking pictures of people on the street is just not common, but even that is not going to stop us from taking pictures. You don't need hours of preparation, a professional model, a ton of photo gear or even a good day. Just lighten up and shoot!!!

What we missed:

 

We thought we would have more time with each model, but they were not as cooperative as we'd like so taking a lot of shots was totally out of the question. We should have used a reflector on the opposite side to give some fill. We also thought that if we setup somewhere with great composition the "models" would just walk by and we would talk to them and convince on the spot, didn't happen. We actually had to chase them around Parque Lleras so our composition was a little off. Live and learn...what can we say.

 

Lighten up and enjoy the shots!!!
