snapped: my first photoshoot
Two weekends ago, I was in my first ever photo shoot. I’ve attended ones for work, where we shoot talent. I even had to step in as talent once. But this is the first time I was the model and the only model. And I discovered that I’m pretty awkward at it.
My friend Maryam, who blogs at Pamplemousse1983, asked if I’d be willing to be in a shoot. She’s a great photographer, but has been wanting to do more shots of people. So yes, I agreed.
We met around White Rock Lake here in Dallas, and this is where I demonstrated my best ‘deer in headlights’ face. Don’t get me wrong: it was fun, but man, I discovered that I’m really self conscious. From reading whollyKao, you probably notice that I don’t post many shots of myself. It’s something I’d like to do more of, though. And I’d like to give props to those who feel perfectly at ease in front of the camera.
To Maryam, I’d like to say: Thanks for the chance to be your model. The pics are lovely. Now…if I could only work on being less self conscious…
