These were done in natural light
As for Creative Lighting, I love finding kids to do the teen shoots with, because they really don't understand how beautiful or handsome they are. I know because I HATED being a teen. Teens are quick to take pictures of themselves with their p&s but seem intimidated to have them done "professionally". I believe that's because they don't understand what is involved and that it is nothing like what they will see with their little cameras. Being a teen was TERRIBLE. I can't imagine how awesome it would have been to have gotten the chance to take part in some fun real photoshoots and show the world that I was more than what THEY (the mean kids) said I was. Here are 2 exceptional girls. The gorgeous young redhead is MaryHelen and the beautiful, rather sultry girl with the wild hair is Rachel. MaryHelen's mother did the hair for both girls and her co-worker did the finished look for MaryHelen. Our friend Angela did their makeup which really brought it all together.
The teen shoot was done downtown during the day with some creative lighting.
