The lyrics, “I get by with a little help from my friends,” rings true for this recent photo shoot with my gal pal, Amy. She is an established photographer and owns her own photography business with her husband, And How! Imaging. You may be familiar with their work since I’ve blogged about photo shoots with these creative people. This time the camera was turned on Amy and I was the photographer. Amy is very knowledgeable and oozes talent in her own work.
I recently enrolled in the New York Institute of Photography and I’m currently taking an intensive course in portrait photography. So just like any school program, this one has photo assignments after each unit. I asked Amy if she would be my “willing model” and she agreed to my delight. I had a specific assignment to accomplish with these photos. Amy was such a natural (as I knew she would be) and below are a few photos from the photo shoot. Amy has been a big help with giving me great photography advice. If you’re getting into a hobby or field, it’s always nice to have someone you can bounce questions off of and to give you the dos and don’ts. I’ve truly gotten by so far with Amy’s guiding hand while I’m in school.
Trying out a little tintype editing. I hope some time down the road learn the real deal 🙂
