Behind the camera
The shoots I have done for Liquido Fashion before have always been either very small (2 people) or at the beginning of both Liquido’s career and my photography. As such that first shoot, while having 5 people in it, was more relaxed.
Last week Wednesday was a bit of an eye opener as we had 10 yogis rock up for the shoot. I quickly called in my buddy Konrad to assist with the idea of being able to split the girls into groups and have Konrad and I shooting different themes at the same time.
One of the biggest challenges was by far making sure everyone knew what they were doing and not standing around for too long. Giving directions is something I never thought I would need for my photography but I am slowly understanding the importance of being able to direct and position people.
Having a yoga practice of my own helped as now I knew some of the positions to get the ladies into and which poses translated well for the camera.
During post editing I realised a few mistakes I had made and could have done better to get some better photos. We still landed up with some really great photos so as usual it has been a great learning experience for me and my photography.
All in all it was a lot of work but also a lot of fun and as always I’m always looking forward to more work with Liquido Fashion.
