I can recall my very first photo shoot, and it was with my friend Yolanda Scott (pictured to the left) way back in 1982. As you can see, she was a very attractive young African-American woman who sported a naturally curly afro under that big cowboy hat. She also sported an old Army jacket, and wore some heels that accented her great legs! To me, it was my very first successful photo shoot. :)
I remember having purchased my first 9-foot grey seemless paper backdrop for this shoot., I tacked it along the panel wall in my parents den. I also had to move all of the furniture around to make room to set up my camera, and lights.
It's now a few years later, and the ride in photography, and videography has been a pleasurable experience for me.
Photography has taught me that there are no boundaries! It allows you to meet people of all cultures; whether poor, or rich, and it allows you to visit many places.
It's true that pictures are just captured moments in time, and if you're not aware of time moving forward, you'll find yourself reminiscing about the past.
Hopefully, you would have captured some of that past on a picture!
