up until monday, I hadn't done any of them but I was really looking forward to it. that I hadn't gotten together the time to actually make an appointment and do such a shoot was not a reflection on my desire to do it. I've just been busy.
anyway... monday night from about 10pm - 4am, I did a headshot shoot.
I got the results today. I was totally nervous that I'd screwed something up and none of the shots would be worthwhile. I was nervous about how that would reflect on my skillz. but I was more concerned about showing someone a bunch of pictures of themself in which they felt unattractive. I mean, I knew it was my first try and I was bound to make plenty of mistakes... and even though someone might rationally understand that, if I showed them a bunch of unattractive shots of themself as a result, I'm sure it wouldn't be taken that well.
after reviewing the shots, I'm pretty happy. some of them are definitely usable. I have plenty of things to work on and do differently, and I'm sure I'll do better next time, I'm really pleased wtih some of the shots.
