This was her first time being in front of a camera (in this type of situation), and she just needed some head shots, so we kept it real simple.
Lexington, KY is currently hosting the World Equestrian Games, and today was college day. It was free for college students, so Elliot, Whitney, my friend Dave, and I hopped on a bus downtown Lexington, rode out to the horse park, and walked around all day. It was such a blast! We even got to pet a penguin!
This was taken in the Alltech tent, where they had a model of sustainable farm that they are working on.
There are more pictures to come for sure, but it will probably take a bit because this is the week when everything is due for every class pretty much. Let the stress begin.
I just opened an Etsy shop with my sister! Check it out!

Well, back to playing catch up. Saturday was an exhausting day. I had to be in Louisville by 9:00 am for a day of open shoots for Pinnacle 10. We shot 12 or 13 people, which took until around 7:00 pm, and I then had an hour drive back to Lexington.
Pinnacle ten is a model and talent agency group. The photographer (Andrew Kung) who I have been helping out works for Pinnacle 10, and invited me to learn the ropes on Saturday so that he can hand off the open shoots to me. Once a month they hold these open shoots where they try to bring in new talent. Aspiring models come in for hair, makeup, and styling and we shoot them in a couple different ways. They get two or more outfits, and we do a combination of ambient light and strobes. We shoot differently based on how we would potentially be marketing the person, either commercial or fashion. The open shoots are not only a way for the hopeful models to get some shots for their books and such, but also a way for Pinnacle to start finding and developing new talent. It was such a great experience, I learned so incredibly much in such a short time.
This picture was taken using a ring flash, and is of one of the new, unsigned talent that came in on Saturday.
