A new look – Shoot with @lolathesourpuss
June 8, 2018
Loooong weekend! Whoop whoop! Well…for me.
We’ve been planning to hit Jozi over this weekend for a Lecrae concert. If you don’t know by now, that’s one of my favourite artists. Unfortunately, a week before the show, the organizers postponed it until August due to “unforseen circumstances”. Blegh… We were bummed but we planned this 2months ago so we’re going to Jozi, okay?! We’re going. Lol
With some time off in mind, I planned a shoot with Lola (@lolathesourpuss) the morning before we left PE. We wanted to do a sunrise shoot but missed it by a bit because of traffic delays. Reminds me of an old favorite Musiq Soulchild track, “time waits for nothing”.
Even so, we still had some good, soft light to work with. After shooting in Central/Town for @ootreysa, I was keen to use the same location again. That urban and old architecture feel is flames upon flames upon flames. A real gem for togs.
I tried something a little different in my post processing this time. I kept the mood of my images but cranked up the saturation to make the colors pop more. I kinda like it!
Grant from MIE Media was assisting and shot some behind the scenes footage for his vlog so give him a follow if you want to see that. Lola’s fun and down-for-new-things attutide made the shoot almost effortless. I really enjoyed it. I’m reminded of my last shoot because the same kind of balance between planning and spontaneity came into play.
I’ll be posting some more to my Instagram Page for the next few days. If you want to see that, please follow me there as well. But since you’re here and read all the way to the end, here’s a handful of my faves. 🙂
Thank you for reading and as always, let me know what you think, mkay?
What to expect from your first photo-shoot
Hey! If you've never had a photo shoot, you probably have little to no idea regarding what to expect. I thought I'd write a piece on just that. Here's what you can expect before, during, and after your on-location photography session with Maverick Coltman Photography.
