The KNIGHT Shoot Out!

Monday, October 1, 2007

You're probably thinking what in the world does the title above mean?

Typically during the hustle and bustle of a wedding I have about 30 minutes after the ceremony to do pictures. 50 portraits have to be completed at lightning speed and by the end of the evening I find myself wishing I could take just a few more shots. Every once in a while, I take a break to do some of my own photography work. No boundaries, no assignments, no schedules, no rushing, just me shooting with my own creativity. What a release!

For this Shoot Out I enlisted the help of a few folks that I will affectionately refer to as Team KNIGHT.

Team KNIGHT


So after three hours of lighting research, two hours of hair and make-up, a trip to my friend Phillip for flowers, a tank of gas, two google maps and a few glasses of orange juice - we were off.

Lessons learned:

1. Beware of menacing wind close to large buildings - you, your equipment, or your model may just blow away.

2. I know more people in Atlanta than I thought. During lighting research downtown - I had about ten people yell my name from three to four lanes of traffic away.

3. Orange juice does not make up for a full breakfast, even if you are running off of adrenaline.

4. If you make your own veil for a photo shoot, try doing it the night before the shoot instead of the morning of.

Now on to the pictures!
