Shooting with KC was a watershed moment, I think, because here was someone I was loosely-connected with (friends of friends and all that), and with whom I had no prior rapport.
Despite trying to be ready, both with the interview and with shoot ideas, I severely undershot that day, and I regret it. It's embarrassing.
Looking back, I knew I wasn't shooting enough, but we didn't have much time and I got flustered. I could have taken more pictures faster, and I could have taken the ones I did take better. Since then, thinking back on that shoot, I always shudder a little, knowing that I'd like to get that shoot back and knowing also that it can never happen. I'm still learning what works for me, inspiration-wise, but I'm much closer. I now have a look-book, both of shots I've done and those that others have done from which I can draw inspiration, so that's good.
On to the model!
KC was awesome and fun to chat with, and I really liked her perspectives on tattoos and on spontaneity. Shooting with her truck was great - again, I wish I'd gotten some more. I mean, where are my pictures of her smiling face?
