franny and ray portraits
Setting is important in the photography I choose to make. But the subject is more important. The evening that I met up with Franny and Raw turned out to be a beautiful evening for a walk in the woods. Didn't know that when we scheduled it, but things work out sometimes. I was actually having trouble finding good locations because everywhere I looked had potential. As soon as we got into the swing of things I realized that it really didn't matter, Franny and Ray were having so much fun that the setting became secondary and I started to try and capture them.
The photo shoot turned into an observational documentary at times. I would tell them to stand over there, walk away, and by the time I turned around there was a fun moment happening. I shot a couple frames, had them look at me for a portrait, and we moved on.
This last photo is a great example of how a scene just falls into place, and each frame gets better and better....might try and talk about this more later.
