Today I got to take part in a fun event hosted by a great local group, Atlanta Photog Meetups. It was organized and hosted by Chris and Allie Bartelski of The Reason who had scoped out two awesome locations for us and arranged for three fabulous models for us to shoot. We started at the Starlight Drive In Theater and it was C O L D. I think the temperature today maxed out at 34 degrees, or something ridiculously cold like that.
I’d never taken pictures of models before, but all three of them were so professional and patient. They didn’t complain about the weather one bit, even though all they were wearing was wedding attire while all of us photographers were covered from head to toe in winter clothing. After the Drive In, we went to the Atlanta Prison Farm, an old and abandoned facility that was just as creepy as it sounds. However, it was such a fantastic place for a shoot because it was so unusual and untouched. Part of the building had been burned down recently, so we had to be really careful where we stepped. Of course, being the graceful girl that I am, I stepped on a nail sticking out of a board and it went straight through my shoe. Have no fear, I did not sustain any injuries and I learned to be more careful where I stepped.
I had such a wonderful time today meeting new people and taking pictures. Thanks so much Chris and Allie! It was a blast!
Here are some of my favorites from today.
