Nina in France

I was in France at the beginning of June for a conference and decided to take a bit of a vacation while I was out there.  We drove through the country, hitting several cities and towns, starting in Toulouse before heading toward Torreilles, up to Marseille, on through Provence, and back to Arles, before finishing in Montpelier.  I was lucky enough to be traveling with Nina, a exceptionally brilliant and stunningly beautiful friend of mine.  Out of the goodness of her heart, knowing that I’m trying to learn how to take portraits, she allowed me to take a few pictures of her.  Here are some of the results.  Clearly, I have a LOT to learn.  Both with my camera and with Photoshop.  Trust me when I say, they don’t even come close to doing Nina’s smile justice.  But I’m learning.  There are 10 pictures total on the Flickr page if you want to see the rest of them.

  1. The more I see of your portraits, the more I think this is your future. I have seen plenty of pro shoots with paid models that don’t touch this.

      Thanks. It’s mostly Nina. She moved around and I hit the button. I got lucky a few times, I guess. I need to be a bit more assertive, though. I just need to TELL her what I’m trying to do. I just don’t have the confidence to do that yet. Nor do I even know what I want. Most of those shots were all purely her moving. I just know what I like when I see it. haha.
