As photographers, it can be scary to be in front of the camera. We’ve talked about this before. You critique yourself as you would NEVER critique one of your clients.
Without being in front of a camera, how can you make sure that you have every situation so that your clients can be completely comfortable?
You love the look of the ring light and just know it will bring a high fashion feeling to your senior shoots. You pull it out the first chance you get and try to shoot a senior with it. There is going to be a learning curve. Even with doing research and finding out that the easiest way to get use to a ring light as the model is by looking through it, there is NOTHING that can beat having pictures taken of you with it!
Not to mention, of course, how much fun it can be! Especially if you add in a highly talented photographer, an AMAZING makeup and hair artist and 13 hours of model shoots all together.
Granted, I’m not going to use this image as an About Me page. But it does mean that I can share an experience with clients, that I know what it’s like being in an editorial shoot with the whole thing. And that I know a photographer that can take images using a ring light, if that’s what they are looking for.
