The assignment was to show Andrea’s personality in photos for her to use on a dating site. These five fun dating photos do just that–she looks relaxed and happy.
First we talked on the phone so I could find out about her life style and what she enjoyed. After determining five photos was what she wanted, I had her bring lots of her favorite outfits that would show a particular part of her personality. When she arrived she showed me the outfits and I was able to help her make the selections based on the message she wanted to project, and what looked the best is the camera. For something everyday casual this green outfit worked really well for her skin and hair.
My favorite dating photo is the one walking on the bridge. We didn’t talk about this ahead, but I was inspired by her long black coat, fur hat and tall boots. It was really cold and windy, but it worked to our advantage because he coat was blowing in the wind adding that sense of motion. She had to walk back and forth over the bridge a number of times and began to forget herself and have fun.
I love the creative process of finding out about a person and then translating that to images for online dating sites. Each part of her personality that she wanted to show required a different look. She loves to dress up and work out. These were our favorites.
“I was such an awkward subject! I sincerely believe and can say that you’re great fun to work with, and that even though I’m very uncomfortable in front of a camera, you were able to get me to relax and to try to enjoy myself.” Andrea
