For fun, we did a little photo shoot during our stay at the island. Here are some of my favorite photos.
I came up with most of the concepts, described to H how I wanted or would like it to be done, and he took the shots. If there was something he did not get, I would get the camera and show him how I wanted it to look. All the photos were shot in RAW because I love to shoot RAW. I also did the post processing.
Of course some of them were surprising. It always amazes me how an idea when acted upon can produce the most surprising results. You have something in your head, you try to concretize it, but when you are there, though you somehow have an idea how it will turn out, and actually hope it would turn out the way you hoped it would be and yet hope it would come out better; in the end, it’s still always a “shot in the dark.”
A look in a particular direction, a particular tilt of the head, a hint of a smile or even a big, happy smile, little things that make the difference. A ray of light on this side, or that side, or on this particular detail. Little things that make or break it.
I’m not a photographer really. I’m not a model either. I just happen to like nice photos.
