A few weeks ago, Alessandra Lopez and I ventured out to do something I have never done before, a bikini shoot, at a place that I have never been, Joshua Tree National Park. This adventure had to be one of the most entertaining photo trips I have ever been on and the most tiring. However, it was well worth it because I came away with some amazing photos. In total, I walked away with 197 photos that took around 35 hours to shoot and edit.
Let me tell you, this shoot pushed me to the limits of my photography knowledge, skills, and sanity. I gave up an entire weekend, much-needed sleep, and used a sick day at my day job to get these photos processed. My goal was to give everything I had into these photos so I could show everyone how far I have come since starting to take pictures of people. Additionally, the only way to get better is to practice and believe me I got a lot of that.
The photo that you see above it just a sample of that work. By clicking on the photo, you will be able to see more photos from that shoot. That work is just a sample of how far I have come and my new standard for taking pictures of people.
Thank you again, Alessandra Lopez, for that amazing day and showing me Joshua Tree for the first time. Additionally, I have a few other projects I will be wrapping up shortly so I will blog about those when they are done. But for now, enjoy those bikini photos.
