02 Jun Fitness Shoot with Anna
I am so happy that COVID restrictions are starting to be lifted. We are now allowed to shoot outdoors while following safety measures. The weather has been so beautiful this spring that it makes me want to stay outside forever. During the many months of lockdown, I have been learning new photography skills and trying to fill the time as productively as I can. I am so excited to be able to do my craft again. One of my first shoot after the lock down was with the beautiful new model, Anna. Together we planned a fitness shoot.
I connected with Anna on instagram. She is a new model and is in the process of finding herself an agency. I love working with new talent because they have so much positivity and refreshing energy that is it contagious. For her very first shoot ever, we decided to shoot at the Tropical Greenhouse in the experimental farm. I have shot there numerous times and knew I would get some awesome results.
I have only done a few fitness shoots before COVID but I knew I wanted to do more. I love trying new styles of photography so I can learn from all the mistakes I make along the way. It’s easy to stick to the tried and true shoots but growth comes when you step out of your comfort level. This is me stepping out of my comfort zone.
First we did some simple headshots and casual poses that maybe she can use for her model portfolio.
Then we moved onto fitness styled posing. I had a lot of fun working with Anna on this poses. She did her homework and found poses she liked ahead of time so we played around with those. Here are our fitness shots
I highly recommend trying something you naturally wouldn’t lean towards. You may be surprised how much you enjoy yourself. You are never to old to learn new tricks.
