Homework Week One

To my current blog readers: I am taking an online photography class from the fabulous Brooke Snow and I am posting my assignments on my personal blog for submission. So for the next 4 weeks, you'll get to take a peak at my handy work :)


For this assignment, I took the models from my own home.  They're are just too cute, I couldn't resist.
One challenge I had in this shoot (besides trying to keep my two year old happy and attentive during his normal nap time...) is discovering a location in a city I've only lived in for a few short weeks.  But this one definitely paid off! And I was able to find many spots along our walk near the Chattahoochee River (yes, just like Alan Jackson sings about) to exhaust the location.
 
 

 I made a long shot list, and had a plan going into the shoot, and it gave me great ideas throughout.
Although I discovered sometimes a pose just can't be planned, and those turned out to be some of my favorites.  This is Jack's response when asked how old he is:
(we're still working on keepin' that thumb down...)
