Commercial Fashion Photography
When Persnickety and I we were trying to decide where a good place would be to shoot their 4th of July 2014 collection, we thought – what better place than Washington DC? It was SO much fun traveling with my top client, they are my best friends and I love working with them so much.
Soooo… the weather, well it sucked. We got there and had planned to shoot for 2 days, but the weather was going to get bad the 2nd day, so we had to cram everything into the first day. And when say “bad weather” the storm actually had a name, it was called “Riley”, it was a snow storm! The first day (and only day) that we shot, it was one of the most difficult shoots to do, the girls were absolutely freezing, and so was I. I can remember some of my coldest shoots and this was at the very top, because of the humidity and the wind, it was unbearable, and then we put these little girls in summer clothes!!! Honestly it was amazing we got any photos at all from that day. If you look closely you will see the little girls holding their fists tight in some of the photos, I felt SO bad… such a bad situation when you get bad weather for commercial shoots and then have to torture your models. :(
Another hard thing about shooting at this type of shoot is that we wanted to capture the buildings and memorials, so I was shooting all different directions which causes some shadowing, etc. that I don’t like, but had no choice which direction to shoot if I wanted to capture the buildings… fun, fun!
