I classify myself as a fashion/portraiture photographer. This is my strong point. With regards to lighting, I love telling people how to pose to make them look best on camera. The camera is a funny thing. With one wrong angle, things can go seriously wrong and give someone grief about the way they look. As a photographer I think it's important to always change up different angles and lighting to see what is best for someone's features.
The first set of photos is done with my longest-long distance friend Shauna. She was in town for a short while, headmistressing the Blogcademy. Even though, I have taken photos of her through out the years. We never had anyone take professional photos of the two of us.
I also lost a lot of weight recently. This was taken around the time I first met Shauna in 2002.
So we had the talented Lisa Devlin take our photos. She made the whole process very easy. She gave excellent direction and I never froze up. She made me feel very relaxed even tho I only just met her!
