Our team was small - only three of us - so the shoot day went smoothly. I had booked two hours at the location, which I knew would be enough for me as I tend to work quickly (for better or worse). The space host let us in when I met Annabelle and Dawsey at the location. We took a quick look around and then got straight to the photoshoot.
Dawsey and I had never met before, so we got to know each other a bit. She was comfortable in front of the camera, making my job easy. To my surprise, there was ample light around the space, so I could take the shoot with only natural lighting instead of relying on rented equipment.
For Dawsey's shoot, I tried out a variety of looks in different locations. Sometimes portrait shoots can be intimidating because creating something exciting and unique is hard. But creating variation is easy if you move your subject around the space and give them different clothes, angles, and sitting positions. We moved all around the apartment, taking wide and tight shots, giving us plenty of variety.
