I did! …. and you know what, it was a brilliant idea! Michael isn’t the one that graduated college with a passion for being creative. He never had a desire to learn photography… but he has a desire to love and serve people and so he learned. He has been learning how to shoot for years now and he’s GOOD! I’m so thankful that creativity runs in his family because it has proven to be a huge asset in our business! Sometimes his composition is better than mine!! I’ll have to do a post of “The Best Of Michael’s Shots” for 2014!! That would be so much fun!
For now, I’m going to share with you what I did immediately following the conversation about Michael shooting a session without me. Michael went to email our friend Charlie about picking a date for the shoot and I sat in the living room and created the quickest cheat sheet known to man!! It was fast, simple and listed out the basics so clearly. It was perfect for Michael and he actually said he used it during the shoot! Now I don’t think it’s anything fancy because I put it together on a whim… but I thought that MAYBE someone who is constantly shooting portraits for senior boys would find this helpful! So, if you need a copy of this, it is a FREE DOWNLOAD in The Collection!! Enjoy and don’t judge… I made it in like 4 mins!! :)
So, not only did I want to share the cheat sheet, I also wanted to share some of Michael’s BEST shots from his first solo shoot!! I’m so incredibly proud of him!!!!! Looking good Charlie!!!!
