Portrait Photography Class

In early October, I signed up on a whim for a portrait class at the zoo. I thought it would help me figure out how to pose Lily for some of her senior photos. I really didn’t know what to expect. I knew they would have models there for us to work with. We were taken to the Asian Grasslands area of the zoo, where we met the zoo photographer, whom I had worked with before. He and his wife had decided to have more of a high fashion model shoot instead. I was not happy in the beginning because this was not what I signed up for. However, we got into the shoot and I had a good time. Thanks to Katie, Amy, and Rebecca for posing for us during class. Some of the poses were a little over-the-top for me and my purposes, but I stole Rebecca for a few moments and just practiced with the natural lighting and her face. Afterwards I wondered around and took photos of the animals…which I will post separately. Here are the portrait model photos from class:
