If you have worked with me, you probably recall me taking random shots of things during our shoot. As we are chatting and moving locations, my eyes search around and I snap photos because I can't turn the shutter part of my brain off. I like to see what a certain spot looks like on camera before I add in my subjects. Taking a test shot also helps me adjust my camera settings and decide the general area where I might place you. I also do test shots once clients are added, whether you are looking or not, so I can adjust settings, etc (I end up deleting those). While going through photos to update my website, I came across some test shots and just enjoyed looking at them...so I thought I would share! Although I do love landscape shots, I find myself always looking for where a person would fit in to complete the photo. I guess I just love looking at people.
Here are a few of my favorite shots before THE shot...
