Push It

So, the band has a couple of big shows coming up and needed a few new promo pictures. On Friday, the weather held out long enough to do a short shoot. Let me tell you...it is HARD to take photos of that many people. I shot over 500, and only ended up with about 40 where someone wasn't making a weird face/had their eyes closed/wasn't doing something stupid.

This was kind of a fun opportunity to push myself and do something outside the norm since the shoot was for a band and allowed for more high-key and "edgy" shots. On the other hand, because these pictures aren't really my norm (both in terms of needing to be more posed shots than I usually do for the purpose of promos, and in terms of the editing), I'm also less confident in the shoot than I am of some of the others I've done in the past...but they're growing on me.

  2. I love the sun spots in the prayer circle. God's gifts for sure!

    The car shots are beautiful as well! I'm a big fan of those, because although they're "posed," they seem a little less contrived than the ones where they're standing in a line.

    Beautiful work, Mer! Way to push outside your comfort zone!
