Pin-up shoot, out of comfort zone

Wed Feb 18, 2015, 5:06 AM


I just wanted to do a bit of a post about my recent pin-up shoot.  You see, I love my picture being taken.  But usually, that is when I am in the middle of doing something, or if I need some pictures of something I have made.  Doing this pin-up shoot was actually way out of my comfort zone.  For once, I had actively looked to have my pictures taken by a photographer, by someone that I don't really know.  Sure, I've followed her on facebook, and I know people that know her, but here I was, going to a place I've never been before to have my pictures taken.

So I got there, and the first thing that happened was she did my hair for me.  I've never done pin-up hair before, and it is one of the things she offers for those that she is doing a photo shoot of.  As she did my hair, we talked and I started to relax.  I found that we like a lot of the same things and that I was comfortable around her.

The shoot itself was the most nerve wracking part.  I'm not used to deliberately posing for photos you see.  She was amazing though, and guided me to different poses.  Constantly adjusting the lights so that there wouldn't be a huge glare off of my glasses, giving me advice on poses, praising me when I hit them, and even going on about how cute some of the shots were turning out.

I felt empowered by this shoot.  I started to have a lot of fun, and at one point was dancing in place to music in the background as she took shot after shot of me with the camera.  All in all, I'm really happy that I stepped out of my comfort zone and did this, because the end result was quite amazing and I'll definitely be working with her again. :)
