Trecking it with Christopher
This senior session was one for the books for me. Beginning with the arrival of my "up for anything assistant" and ending with an unexpected road trip and hike to catch the perfect location and lighting.
Twenty minutes into a senior session, when the senior says, I know of this place with great backlighting...
You throw your gear into the jeep and go!
And end up in places like this...
We (my assistant Kami and I) weren't aware that we'd be scaling large rocks, and hiking through the wilderness, but as they say, ignorance is bliss.
For two weeks I had been fighting the worst cold in the history of mankind...seriously. So, any chance of rest to get back to complete health was aside. There may have been frequent stops to catch my breath and a couple moments I thought my heart might explode, but ultimately, this little hike was totally worth it.
Christopher, grew up near here, so he knew it like the back of his hands. We would see him one second and the next he was completely out of view... jumping down what felt like a 15 foot boulder then bounding up the next. Poor Kami was loaded down with seventy-five percent of my equipment (flash, soft box, a battery pack, and extra lenses). I was grateful for her! This way, for the most part, I keep up with Christopher...or at least have a general idea in which direction he went.
And come home with shots like this one.
Thanks for the unexpected adventure "C-Squared!" You didn't steer us wrong. I look forward to more shoots in this area..(If I can talk Kami into doing it again.)
Enjoy your senior year!
