Backstage with Elena!

January 26, 2016 Backstage

Awful day for swimming… but who cares? We didn’t do that! No way, it is January 26!

Still… We had an amazing time with Elena being our model for the day. Started up with a great coffee, telling stories about ourselves and just trying to enjoy each other company while we heated a little. Do you want to know what happened next?

I have to say that once we walked inside that coffee shop, in my mind I started to make a plan. Were to pose and how to do it.

And we all know that making plans isn’t a great idea. But the way things went was even better. After all didn’t you see the person I was working with? A long hair, mysterious eyes, beautiful smile and an outfit that fits perfectly. She’s an attractive woman and I’m sure she knows that.

I’m thinking it was about 12:00 AM in a cloudy day and to be honest inside the location was plenty of natural light to work with. Really convenient even if we came prepared for any situation. So I started to set my camera and as you can see in the following images we tried different poses here and there.

When I first meet a person who will work alongside…

I expected to be nervous for the first 5 to 10 minutes. That’s normal! Nobody was born to be a professional model. Some people never done this before.

But once I managed to create that comfort zone. She has turned into a different person with a positive energy who always wanted to know what’s next.

I really do not know what else to say. And truth be told I am not a very good story-teller. We had fun, we got great results and ultimately was a great day.

Thank you so much for the visit. See you next time,
