Yesterday I met up with my friend Kyle to help photograph his daughter’s soccer team at Roseville High School They didn’t have any specific in mind, just headshots for the each of the girls and a large team photo with everyone in it. To be honest, I have done lots of business headshot and have photographed lots of seniors for their graduation photos but this was the first for a sport team.
So starting with headshot we did. Kyle and I took turn holding the reflector for each other. It was around 6 o’clock at the time. The sun was super bright so we chose to backlight the girls so that their hair will glow (and they don’t have to squint with the sun in their eyes.)
It’s funny but the day before this, I did headshot for 70 people at Procter & Gamble and it was pretty much the same set up.
“Stand 45 degree away from me and turn your chest toward me.
Tiptoe. Yes! Tiptoe. It does wonders to your hips.
Look away from me and laugh out loud. ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.. Do it!!!! Do it!!!”
So in addition to headshot, I thought it would be fun to get some action shots in too.
I HAD NO IDEA THAT THIS WOULD SPARK A WHOLE SERIES OF JUMPING, HAIR WHIPPING & CANDID FRIENDSHIP PHOTOS.
I seriously cannot tell you who had more fun: the girls or me laughing at all of the outtakes. At one point, one of the girl said that she loves all of the sound effect that I did to imitate movement. I think I do it so much that I don’t even know it but I’m glad they got a kick out of it. They are seriously THE BEST GROUP to work with!!!!
Thank you so much for such a great time girls!!! I look forward to working with you again so we can laugh our heads off.
