Sinmidele Badero Natural Hair Portrait by Glenford Nuñez
So an industry friend convinced me that I should do a photo class. Having a class has been on my mind for some time so her suggestion pushed me off the fence.
The idea was to create an open environment that people felt comfortable asking questions.
I didn’t want it to be a beginners class. Like, I didnt want to explain how a camera works. Aperture, shutter speed ISO lenses blah blah blah. I wanted to get into the next steps. Lighting, composition, model direction and all that good stuff. I also wanted to talk about the business side of photography but I learned that should be a completely separate class.
Sinmi was the model for the day.
I shot this with a Nikon D700 with a 135mm f/2.8 AI-S.
We used window light and the trusty circle reflector.
Rants & Tangents
Not really much to say about this shoot. We had a great model and we took pictures. LOL
I think there is a need for these types of classes. I will do a business side of photography class very soon. I think its important. I want to tell people about my challenges and the ups and downs of having a photography carer. I want to explain to them that ups and downs are the nature of the business. As a matter of fact owning a photography business is like a metaphor for life. Its never going to be perfect and things will go a lot smoother if you work with the flow instead of fighting against it.
