Hello everyone! As promised, I am here with a post-photoshoot blog entry, and what other way to start it than with the aforementioned, Aeneas!
After trouble with an initial shoot date, we rescheduled for the night of Thursday, July 17th. I got to her place around 11pm (this late because I had to close up shop at work), and we got right to it. She was very welcoming, and very engaging to talk to, which was awesome since this was the first time we actually met. Got to know each other for a little bit, had a glass of red wine, and jumped right into it.
We were both fueled by our shared interest of Japanese photographer YONE (Yasumasa Yonehara) and Japanese model, Lena Fujii, to kind of inspire our shoot a little. With her being Half Japanese, and my profound interest in Japanese culture, we hit it off easily.
But all wasn't so well....
Early during the shoot, we noticed a bunch of fruit flies! She had not really seen them before, so she was freaking out a bit! I gave her the whole run down on how they came into her condo and that they would eventually go away, so she calmed down a little. It was actually pretty entertaining how jittery she was because of them. Anyways, the shoot went on!
We had a couple outfits going, and we were just burning through film like nothing. She was a joy to work with, and really really fun. It was getting real late, and we were both tired, so at around 3 am, we wrapped it up. We got some great images, but I know that a bug-free shoot for our next time together would result in even more awesome shots! Check out her full set in my Portfolio page! THANKS!
