Kisha @ Ft. Monroe

Hi everyone! Welcome to my first of many blog posts! I hope you enjoy reading and viewing my work! 

Okay so yesterday morning I got up at the CRACK OF DAWN...no wait, EARLIER. I woke up at 5 am while it was still dark. Definitely grateful for coffee. Why you ask? Well I was invited to by Damien of The Art of Imagery to join him in his sunrise photoshoot with his friend and model Kisha. I didn’t know what to expect but I knew I wanted to learn from Damien. I have been following his images on Instagram and so glad I had to opportunity to tag alongside him and watch his mind work. Pure genius. By the way, follow @theartofimagery on IG! 

So we started off our shoot before the sun started to peak and were using flash photography. I am still very new at working with a flash but I learned a great deal. Here’s a gorgeous photo I was able to snap with my external flash!

Pretty amazing, right?! Definitely grateful for Damien’s knowledge of lighting and for helping me achieve this photo.  

So throughout the next hour and half I shot alongside Damien while he and Kisha worked hard at their crafts. I wasn’t sure how my images would turn out, but one thing I did know- Kisha is gorgeous, and she’s a natural talent. Most of her poses were her own and they came out perfect. I can’t wait to photograph her again. She’s a diamond in the rough! 

Take a look at the rest of the images! What do you think? Comment below and tell me which is your favorite!

I seriously am so in love with each image!  

After the photoshoot, Damien showed me a couple of cool spots around Ft. Monroe. I even got a great snapshot before heading home for breakfast! I had a wonderful time and can’t wait to shoot at Ft. Monroe again! Waking up early was worth it! (Totally took a nap later in the day) 😜
