Stepping in front of the lens

Portrait of Mark Cannon by Jenelle Marina

A couple of days ago I stepped from behind the lens to help out a Langara student. 

Jenelle had a vision for her shoot and I was pleased to be part of such a fun shoot. As you can see from Jenelle's Instagram feed, she nailed it and delivered great portraits.

What I found really valuable was taking things in from in front of the lens. I could consider the where the photographer was at, think about how a photographer engages with their client, what the vision for the shoot was, what was my part in making the shoot a success. In short, so much great learning. 

I'd absolutely encourage photographers to step out of their comfort zone from time-to-time and see things from a different perspective.

I had an absolute blast, thank you, Jenelle.
