Tammy who asked me if I'd photograph the girls: "Awesome, lets do it!"
That conversation was over the summer and tonight we did it. The lighting wasn't easy, but i had a couple of assistants - thanks to some willing parents - and the the wind was making the smoke from the smoke machine nearly impossible to control, but we figured it out and tried to make a different look to MASH girls Soccer. As with all things I do I immediately see things to do better next time around, but these turned out ok I think, especially for a first try. These girls seemed to want to have their pictures done in a different way than they have in the past and that is very great. I'm going to work on these pictures this coming week and try to find a way to make them really sing--I'm even thinking about playing with the idea of black and white for some aspects of the photos, I'll experiment and see if anyone likes it before I commit to it though!
