Coffee Break

Model: Angela

Angela is nothing short of talent or kindness. It was a long time coming for our photo session, but I'm happy we were able to make time for each other! It was such a great day just to stroll around the iconic areas of Gastown as well. 



I'll admit that when it comes down to taking photos, I do get caught up in one style, or a format. I've always felt that I've missed capturing the moment or motion in the subject. Motion is so important within imagery. It can imply direction, mood, and even frame the subject.  

In this set, as a goal I tried to capture as much motion as I can in my model, and it's always great when you have a fantastic partner to work with. Ashley was amazing and took direction perfectly. Not only was this an exercise in capturing movement, but also developing better ways of giving direction because I feel that it is one of my weakest spots.
