Even though I didn’t get to shoot inside the gallery I still had a great time. I pulled my usual Woodard and checked out the area around the gallery including the abandoned building across the street. Met some new people, got some photographs I really like and hung out with some interesting people for a couple of hours.
I really need to be about a hour late for these photoshoots. That way I would get past the confusion of organizing the shoot and be there when more of the photography is happening. Everyone dosen’t really loosen up for a couple of hours and I miss a lot of the most interesting opportunities, like when all the models got into the water at the Tranquility Park shoot. With my self imposed two hour limit I was long gone before then and usually before the good light. If they don’t change the time the lighting will get better as the days get shorter.
Anyway, here are a few of the shots I did at the Rock Star Photoshoot that I liked.
I called this one Practically Predatory. I think that actually Jennifer Chase, the shoot host, set this up outside of Calliope's Po-Boy Shop next to the Gallery.
Marina Gabriella, the model, is outstanding. It is almost impossible to get a bad photograph of her.
