The Crew (minus Saydie)

August 24, 2012

Some days it’s nearly impossible to get Mae to pose for me. She understands the project. She knows I need at least ONE good image of her a day. Just one. So when it takes me THREE shots to a good image, life with Mae can be difficult.

The first two images I took of her earlier in the day were just okay – nothing all that compelling. I knew I needed something just a little better – but the light was fading fast. Her big sister came to the rescue. If I suggest I take a photo of Leah by herself, Mae gets all in a tizzy. She just has to be in the photo — so, outside she came. I told them where to sit, Lainey decided to take part – I checked my light meter, adjusted my exposure settings – framed up the photo – and was done in less than 30 seconds. Not bad. I’m much happier with this image.

Today is another day.
