Black and White Photo Shoot
Black and white photo shoot that was done last fall with the super talented and gorgeous Raye. I can’t say enough nice things about her and how easy she is to work with, not to mention how comfortable she is in front of the camera. It makes it so much easier for me, who’s not quite as comfortable when shooting at times as there is usually a lot of nervous energy with hoping to capture images that the model likes. I sometimes wonder if I get more nervous than the people I’m shooting, and in this instance that was likely the case.
One of the things that made this shoot a bit easier is that Raye knew going in that she wanted black and white photos, and she knew exactly what she wanted the photos to look like along with bringing examples of black and white photos we went through before hand. Again, something that takes a bit of stress off of me in getting something close to what she wants, although there were a few we had to adjust a tiny bit due to the space we were working in.
All things considered, I think the shoot went extremely well and I hope she feels the same way. Regardless, I can’t say enough about how easy she is to work with and just how photogenic she is. I only hope the black and white photos did her justice, as she’s stunning in person. I could easily see her taking to video just as well as she takes to still photos. I definitely wouldn’t be surprised to see her as the model in a music video at some point in the future. She definitely has the look, personality, and the charisma to pull it off.
