Right now I am still on the high of owning a 6d. Now that I’ve kind of gotten the hang of it, I want to shoot as much as I can and continue to grow and develop further as a photographer. Owning a full frame camera does a whirlwind of a difference in comparison to a crop frame. I’ve only done one session before with the camera, my brother’s senior pictures, so I really wanted to get a few more in before I headed back to Lynchburg for school. My friend, Courtney was more than willing to come help me out and be a model for me.
First, Courtney is awesome! We’ve met last year, I interned for the Athletics Marketing department at Liberty while she was working there for community service. We worked a few games at the same time and since we had the same major, we had a class together the following semester I believe. The funny thing is, when we met we discovered that we lived so close to each other, so after graduation, we decided that we probably should take advantage of it ;). She’s great!
Secondly, I’ve been looking around for a while, trying to find a farm that I could shoot on that wasn’t privately owned or had to pay something to shoot on. I’m part of a local community group called Shoot and Share and I came across someone mentioning about Meadow Farm in Glen Allen. To my excitement I looked it up and saw that it was exactly what I was looking for. I tweeted about it and Courtney told me that she would definitely love to model for me!
This session, was absolutely amazing! I may have to say that it is probably one of the best that I’ve done to date. There are so many that I could choose from, but here are a bit of my favorites!
