Photography Practice Awakens

I’m not a Star Wars fan, so not sure why I chose that title.

My first photography session with a model actually produced some good results, for a beginner. I was a little loathe to post these anywhere because they are very amateur-ish, both from me and the model. I’m only using standard angles for the photo, and the model is providing some pretty basic poses. This is not a problem in and of itself, because I’m looking for two things at this stage: a clear photo and a straight horizontal line (the subject is in the right spot in the photo). I ran these two photos through Lightroom using my B&W preset, which I tweaked a bit, and the cropped them so that they were IG friendly and voilà, they came out okay. I’ll chalk it up as win.

I’ve posted these to IG and may take them down, but let’s see what kind of attention I get…..
