senior portraits--cross country

Theresa Skutt , Oct 05, 2009; 04:51 p.m.

My shoot is actually in a few minutes! I am planning to shoot a senior running at the top of a hill. I don't know how to do anything other than a silhouette, more or less into the sun. Any advice on shooting a senior running cross country?!

try different angles ...also - expose for the runner - not the sun!

try shooting him/her running toward you in a rare angle. OR try shooting him/her doing his/her stretching exercise too.

David & Morey,
I have a little more time now. Our woodsy stuff took too long, so we're doing cc another day. How close to sunset would you push it, personally?

Any small streams/puddles he/she can jump? Downed tree limbs?

Try to stage it vs. capturing it while he's running. You'll have lots more control.....-Aimee
