Mixing Business with Pleasure
The next step was testing if this bad boy would be a good fit for client shoots. My sweet friends Sarah & John are expecting, and they told me they weren’t thinking of doing maternity photos. So naturally, I burst into their home and forced a photoshoot upon them. It was a super sunny day out, so I tested this point-and-shoot’s capabilities, and I got to say, everything came out balanced!
With the digital and separate roll of Portra 400 I shot, the half-frame photos added a bit of spice to their gallery. The experiment inspired confidence and led to me grabbing a couple of snaps at other client projects. Capturing hugs, surrounding nature, and little smooches at a couples shoot uncover a little sparkle.
Movement, in-between moments, details. I feel more freedom to waste a few shots on the in-between moments instead of savoring for the ‘it’ moments. Then, of course, you get your scans back and end up loving the ‘throwaways’ just as much, if not more. This added dimension is well worth the $50 price tag.
