September 5, 2018
I really can’t think of a way I could possibly finish the 2018 year. This year we have not only rebranded but expanded out services to a much larger audience and in return we have had the honor of photographing various events, venues, and outstanding people. The most recent session we photographed was right downtown Durham North Carolina outside of the Durham Hotel. There we met actress and model Jessica B Monroe who is a published model here in North Carolina. If there was ever a person to work with she would definitely be on the recommended list. She was kind, patient, and professional the entire duration of the session.
It was around 7:00pm and the sun was just setting that Thursday evening and we wanted to capture the golden hour of the day. As the photographer setting the stage for out session I wanted to go with a classy but warm and welcoming atmosphere for the photos. Although the sun had set below the trees we had the model wear a bright red dress to represent the bright shining sun. In a sense she was the “golden hour” or “dusk” of the day. We shot with an 85mm 1.8 lens to remove some of the details from the background and create a nice smooth surrounding.
There was just enough light on Jessica to make her stand out from the rest of the scene. It was as if a spotlight had shun on her. We made sure to keep our ISO as low as possible to reduce the grain from the images. Overall, it session was a success, and we are definitely looking forward to working with Jessica Monroe in the future.
