Sunday October 21st was the first time for me to join a small group of models and some professional, a few amateur photographers to do a photo shoot at "Kastellet" which is an old fort ground facing the ocean. The temperature was supposed to be warmer, but it was overclouded, a bit windy and cold.
We met at the train station and introduced ourselves shortly to each other with the nervous smile. The person in charge soon paired us up in groups with a model and it was agreed that when we had the photos, we should find each other and exchange so we could try both different photographers as well models.
I was a bit nervous yet curious because I haven't tried photographing models since March and not in this scale. I didn't even think about telling them that I was hard of hearing, because it went off so quickly and time flew by with me behind my camera and chatting with the other photographer I was paired with. I found even though it was just the 3 of us, it was not that bad. I have decided that next time I will tell them that I am hard of hearing. It was interesting to see how it was to work with a model. You had to think about what you had to take into account to get the photo you wanted to do, was the lightning right, was there enough time, would the model do it and how to ensure it gets done correctly.
When you finally photograph something you just do it and I found I rather enjoyed it out there. I found myself lost in the here and now. At the same time, I was trying to see what the other photographer was looking for, and what kind of photo was she aiming for. It was nice to be challenged in this way because usually I work alone. Here are a few photos from this photo shoot. Thanks to the model Susann Cornelius!
