CHS Senior Garrett

November 13, 2017  •  2 Comments

Garrett, is the first senior guy I have shot this season.  My wife and I graduated with his mother, Brooke, so I have known her for quite some time.  It was also the first senior that I have shot completely in a urban environment, which was a nice change of pace and game me an opportunity to shoot him a little differently than I have everybody else.  I liked just wandering around downtown Christiansburg and seeing what I found to shoot him with.  I knew I wanted to take some down in Cambria because I liked the buildings down there.  While we was shooting against the antique store a train started to go by so I got Garrett to turn the train and set my camera up to shoot a slow shutter speed shot of him while the train was going by so the train would appear to blur by.  It was tough for both of us, I was shooting at a half of a second shutter speed, hand held and he had to stand very still. I took sequences of photos the entire time the train went by to make sure we got one that was sharp and we got it.  That turned out to be a nice shot and something different, I always like when something unexpected happens and I can try something different!

It turned out to be a really fun shoot!  Garrett did great and I had a lot of fun walking around and talking video games with him and capturing this moment in his life!
