In the last couple of weeks I’ve been doing all sorts TFCD work to help build me a portfolio. Kids, pregnancy, portraits, babies, etc… When Annick asked me if I could take some pictures of her and her loyal canine I wasn’t really sure to accept the challenge or not. For all the other subjects there are tons of books or online pictures I can look up to get some ideas etc.. for this kind of thing … well not really.
So how to tackle this subject and make it better than the ordinary point & shoots kind of pictures. The shoot itself went smooth, Annick was a very fun person to work with and Zippo (the dog) didn’t seem to mind my presence much. It was a very rainy day so we had to the shoot indoors, the indoor location was a small yet pittoresque farm house. Setting-up a seamless backdrop was out of the question but the upstairs room featured a nice original brick wall with a nice wooden floor.
After seeing the results I wasn’t quite sure about my work, maybe because I had nothing else to compare it to, but a couple of my friends ensured me I did a good job. So .. now that I’ve put them up on the blog I’m rather curious what you guys have to say about this!
