Come Wind, Come Weather

Last week I agreed to take some headshots for a friend. Outdoors, of course. A surprise Smarch blizzard led us to reschedule our original date. We met up last Saturday instead. All of the snow melted but the winds were WILD. At times it was difficult to communicate with the 40mph winds whipping by. Rather than telling him how to pose I just sort of made incomprehensible gestures. I’m just glad my subject doesn’t have long hair! My own hair kept blowing in front of my lens. And, at one point, a great shot was ruined as a used ziploc bag was blown into frame. Despite these challenging conditions and my general rustiness, we had a great time. And wound up with a few decent shots.
