A Perfect Model

.
I mentioned yesterday that I was a little nervous about my first assignment shooting high school senior pictures. Tillie, my subject, was terrific. Her mother is an old friend, a colleague in my legal specialty in central Missouri. We spent a few hours shooting in Forest Park and got some really good results. She was a perfect model.


By the way, I couldn't have done any of this without the instruction from my adored portrait photography teacher, Bobbi Lane. She da best.

Thank goodness for digital photography where you can check your results right away. I once had a colleague ask me to take photos of her wedding. This was 25 years ago, shooting film. I did it, and the pictures came out fine, but I was a nervous wreck waiting for the pictures to come back from the developer.

I vowed never to do that again. My vow has lasted a lot longer than did the marriage.

She looks relaxed, like she's having a good time. That's one of your many gifts as a photographer...putting your subject at ease. Love those bare feet.

Bobbi Lane would be proud of her star student. Well done B!
