I had an e-session scheduled yesterday with a lovely young couple. They asked for the photos to be shot at a renovated tobacco factory that had been turned into a mall with shops and a beautiful outdoor area with water features and lots of cool places to shoot. The session was to run two hours. I meet the couple just outside the mall and wanted to start with a few shots on the street first. As we are finishing these shots, I was approached by two of Durham NC's finest and told that unless I had permission, I couldn't take pictures on the street or in the public mall area. I felt bad because obtaining permission first should have been my responsibility and I blew it. So I told the couple that we'd go to another area I had scouted earlier and shoot there. I also told them that I would see about getting permission to shoot at the mall at a future date and that we'd reschedule their session. I'm not going to charge them any additional fees either. I spent about an hour getting these shots and I'm kind of glad that I'm going to reshoot their pics because I learned a few other things. 1. Always tell the couple to wear outfits that aren't the same color. They did bring different clothes, as I had previously asked them to do, but since we aborted the shoot, we stuck with what they were wearing. 2. I need to come up with some fresh ideas. 3. I have to pay more attention to body and hand positions. Here's a few shots from the session. These have only had basic editing at this point. C&C is always appreciated. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20.
