Judy: Okay we are out here we’re in Danville it’s about ten after four. And we’re on location now our next session is going to take place in a couple of hours, but I wanted to come out here and show you what a location looks like. Not so much in the middle of the day, but with full sunshine that’s we have it the moment. It’s also very windy, so we’re going to walk through all the steps that I would normally take in doing a location check just to make sure everything is looking the way that I would for it too, so come follow me.
As you look around you can see pretty much that everything else is totally in the sunlight, so you are very limited. If I have to shoot this location at this time of the day I would be looking for as much open shade as I could possibly find, and there’s very little out here as see as Jeff is making a full panoramic for you.
The only way that I could really save this if I had too is to take my clients and turn their back to the sun I would be shooting in the direction of the sun, and you know that would kind of create real lighter back lighting, but again it’s very limiting. We’re going to come back here in a couple of hours when the light is much better, and this is where our next session is going to take place, but I did want you to see what it looks like now, so that when you’re out looking at locations you have to take a look at where the sun will set, how the light works in the area that you want to photograph and note the time of days, so that you can get here just at the right time.
Okay, so I’m going to have you turn Jeff, that’s exactly right. You’re just going to bend the knee, yes perfect.
So then Marianne, I’m just going to have you turn a little bit more towards me this way that way hopefully the wind will blow your hair out of your face.
Judy: Okay, this is lens baby time and see.
Jeff: Stand up a little bit.
Judy: Yes, there we go just like that. However, it’s most comfortable and however, you feel safe and secure. You look scare to death. Either that you’re just freezing. Okay, so lean forward, yes perfect. There we go. There those magnificent blue eyes. Turn around okay, and now look at me over your shoulder strike a pose like you did before. And Marianne I want to turn your back towards Ben. You turn a little, perfect. Thank you.
Okay, I want you guys to look over in this direction. Okay, Marianne, I want you to move towards Ben no right here. Yes, and then just select that. Now you can put your hand on your pocket, and actually you have to move forward just a little bit because I want you guys to look over that beautiful tree. But I just want you to look.
Marianne: This one not really not one of that.
Judy: Okay, see this one right here.
Judy: This big one okay, that’s the one, but now bring your shoulders out this way, perfect Ben you’re perfect don’t move. That’s my shot.
Okay so let’s comeback to the bush. Marianne, stand right here, turn around give me your back both of you. Turn around there you go. Now you guys are going to be —you can hold hands. You can do whatever you want, but get together.
Ben: No, no, no.
Judy: You’re going to be looking at the bridge you’re not going to be looking at me.
