Shoot It! (Plixi)

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • Canon 60D
  • plus a bit of Lightroom editing

Q&A with Jennifer Dassau

elizabethgm asked:
These are gorgeous, Jennifer -- really golden and romantic, which seems so well-suited to the garment. It's funny how the turtle head only looks unnatural when you call attention to it. My favorites are "look down" and "cuff and ruffle detail." They make me want to wear that sweater.
Jennifer Dassau answered:
Thanks, Elizabeth! I like "look down" too, but I think I need to tweak the color a little, maybe up the purple saturation of the sweater a tiny bit. Not sure I like the model's neck in that one, but I love the way the ruffle is cascading.
Ipanema asked:
Beautiful model and sweater. I love the style and the color. Your photos are very appealing; I, too, would like to have that sweater.
Jennifer Dassau answered:
Thanks! That's my teenager; I bribe her to model with shopping.
