WOW, it’s been a long time since I’ve written in the blog! (One year and 8 months to be exact!) But I promise that I’m back and I won’t ever leave you again! The biggest post of the year perhaps would be the opening of the Picture Perfect Studio…YES, studio. I still can’t believe it. Love shooting outdoors, the light is always perfect (sunset or rise) and images are always vibrant and appealing but then what if you had total control of the light? I always thought it would be too hard. Every time I would try it at my home, it was difficult and I never got the “Look” that I wanted. The look is that fashion magazine look. That fancy professional, blank background, focusing only on the person portrait. Now that I have the proper space and equpitment, it is possible and I’m loving it.
First of all, Arizona is blazing hot during the summer. I can talk my clients into shooting outside but then we are all miserable. With sweat running down my forehead and dressed “professionally” from head to toe, it is not a pleasant experience for anyone. Clients feel uncomfortable too. After I found the place, I did say I would ONLY sign the lease if they installed an AC unit in the garage portion of the property. I feel that the industrial, garage setting is not only cool in an artistic way, but opening the garage doors, allows for natural light use still.
