I’m pretty sure God is really challenging me with problem solving regarding my past hand full of photo shoots. The last 3 on-location shoots I’ve had, have resulted in CRAZY weather, which we’ve had to work around THAT day due to time constraints/deadlines. It usually results in some great shots, but takes a lot of hard work to get them.
This photo shoot was for a good friend, Emerald, and her new (designed by her) t-shirt line. She provided a wonderful group of girls to model her stuff, and they were a lot of fun to work with. We had a great plan to do some outdoor shots all throughout the photo district in Dallas, but literally 20 minutes after we get there and begin to set up equipment, racks of clothes, a makeup area, etc… it was a torrential down pour!!! As we were driving to our Plan B location to do the shoot, we got news of tornadoes in the area, the cowboys practice “bubble” building caved in, etc… It was pretty crazy! We picked a place that had some occasional covered spots, and some porch areas where we could have quick cover if it rained, which it did rain for the entire rest of the day. We started at 3 Pm and didn’t finish until about 9 PM that night.
Soon you’ll be able to check out the entire Summer Catalog (which she wanted me to provide her “selective color” edited photos), on her site: www.jadestylefashion.com
These first couple of shots are of me shooting throughout the day, shot by my friend (and assistant for the day) Kelsey!
