What was your inspiration?
Jump right in and try a whole photoshoot; also trying to learn hubby's fancypants camera. I wanted to tell a story and put the sweater in context - cool girl lingering at the cafe after work? Something like that.
What are you most proud of?
Getting that golden light - but alot of the shots (not posted here) missed it, I think because of my and the model's positioning. It was about an hour before sunset, and slightly earlier might have been even better. I tried several things from the class, including lead room, turtlehead, light halo, body positioning - mostly composition things. Need to work on some technical-camera things more.
