Every year, I take around a month after Christmas in which I do not take pictures. Well. Mostly anyway. This month is set aside for planning, catching up, that sort of thing.
The last week, it was time to get back into the groove… and beginning that groove with Preston’s senior session was the perfect way to do it. Preston was an awesome subject, and his mom Victoria (who has one of the most beautiful accents in Joplin by the way- she hails from Australia) was gracious enough to let us use her recently purchased downtown loft for most of the shoot. It had some very nice settings and rooftop access, so needless to say, I was super happy.
Preston- a senior at Thomas Jefferson Day School here in Joplin Mo- is a guy who enjoys having his nose pressed either into a book or toward a computer screen. I can identify. We played off that and also featured his one-of-a-kind, (out of commission) squad car toward the end of the shoot.
It was fun. I also tried out some new editing techniques on this shoot, and am super excited about the results. I’d love to know what you think… leave me a comment and let me know! 🙂
