Charlestown photoshoot

tim picked me up from work in charlestown. it was suddenly rather sunny out and not too cold, so i wanted to test 2 filters i bought yesterday. slowly i am finding out that taking pictures is no magic, you just need some stuff.... ;) but especially you need objects. there were some desolate buildings, some graffiti. pretty standard. pictured it all, and then we drove off to go home. turns out right on the other side of the building there was a photoshoot going on! while driving by i took some photos, which were all crap... :( only this one is kind of ok. but it is missing the girl watching with a little dog. and its missing the red ballerina-shoes that were on the ground, most likely the ones the girl being pictured was wearing before she got into those impossible high heels...
taking pictures takes time, patience, a steady hand and.. you need to think before you shoot! too bad i usually realize that when at home, going through my pics, and they all turned out.. not exactly as i wanted.... perhaps if i were a magician i could construct the entire scene as i wanted from the 5 crappy pics i took... hmmm, maybe better next time!

you're very right. i will do so now... inst my fascination for such shoes and legs and skirts a little weird... ? i would never wear something like that myself! :D

I like the photo, there is much to see. Notice the jacket of the styliste, a strange way of wearing. If this is the new fashion, you really have to shorten you skirts...

this magic is called photoshop:)

I think you should not always be so critical with your work, I really like your pictures and often they depict something I wouldn't even notice...

but yeah, it takes a lot of stuff and it is soooo expensive....

Did someone say shorten you skirts! I'm all for that sort of thing.

The secret behind many photographers work is the delete button. Only save (and show), the good stuff.
