I am very proud of the man he has become. I am proud of his decision to serve our country. I am proud that he is graduating high school early. However...I refuse to use the word my other friend used when she saw these pictures. "Man, he is HOT!". No...I will not use that word. Because, he is still a little boy in my eyes. A handsome young man? Yes. But....a "hot soldier"?
It scares me how fast this growing up thing happened. It makes me realize how fast time really goes by. Still, I am proud of this kid. I hope the very best for him. I know he is going to do really great things.
As for photography tips? This sessions once again proved how difficult snow can make things. It was so bright outside that I couldn't see my screen to check my histogram. I couldn't see what settings worked best. I felt like I was in the dark. But...it was so bright! So confusing. I tried to hide under my coat to see what was going on. That did help a little. At least enough to see if I was way over blowing my images. Yet another reason to start shooting in RAW. Any of you attempting the shooting in the snow? Any great tips?
As for shooting seniors? I love it. I think they are the best subjects. They are so fun! If you are looking to improve your own photography, I think seniors are a great practice! Way easier than babies/kids. They are easier to direct and they hold still! Nice! So, if you are getting old like me and have friends that have graduating seniors...give them a session for a graduation gift. Pictures last a life time!
Congrats "Soldier Boy"! We are so very proud of you!
