Roxanne and Ken-Festival Ideas3-07
No, I don’t know what I was doing mak­ing a fist…I think it was an enthu­si­as­tic thing??

Jim Kane that coor­di­nates my pho­tog­ra­phy for the Brighton Schools Fes­ti­val of Ideas took me up on an offer for a pho­to stu­dent to ‘shad­ow’ me on the shoot.

And what a ter­rif­ic stu­dent she was… Rox­anne is very enthu­si­as­tic about shoot­ing and asked great ques­tions. Best of all, she got great shots 🙂

Stu­dents who might get a chance to Shad­ow, learn from Rox­anne:

  • She went to my web site and learned about my work
  • She had ques­tions ready, some tech­ni­cal (when should I be using full man­u­al??) to real­ly great ones like ‘How do I get over being shy at get­ting into the action, right in front of every­one and tak­ing pho­tos?’
  • She came with cam­eras, so that she could shoot too
  • She knew enough about pho­tog­ra­phy to ask good ques­tions. If you don’t know what to ask, maybe you don’t need to be shad­ow­ing a pro?
  • Rox­anne was a nice per­son and pleas­ant to work with… there’s no under­es­ti­mat­ing peo­ple skills in this career…
  • She shot her stuff, I shot mine and it went well. There’s noth­ing worse than stand­ing side by side and over­lap­ping on every shot (actu­al­ly, I budged in on a few of her good shots though 😉
