So, Cassy tells us about her “RED TRUCK” that she purchased and how it’s soon gonna turn into a restoration project. Well it’s obvious it would become a centerpiece for her senior pics. Her favorite clothes were mostly black, combined with black hair and pearl white skin tones, “Yup,” this was all sounding pretty good during her design consultation.
April 10th arrives and so does Cassy with her mom at our studio. Oh boy, another assistant, which I love, can’t have enough hands sometimes. Cassy’s session was well planned and to make her session even better, a light layer of clouds was coming our way and stayed with us for two hours.
I was running around with the long lens while Nick worked our new 60mm.
I’m sure both Cassy and Jan thought we were nuts with our continual antics regarding the quality of light which was most certainly sent by the “PHOTO-GODS.” These
two girls were having fun and so were we, positioning her truck, climbing on decks,
holding gobos and skrims, reflectors (occasionally) and of course, a bottle of water.
I can’t continue without mentioning the colorful individuals that you encounter on old fourth street including one gentleman that demanded that we take his picture. So, Nick obliged, another “Award Winner” I’m sure. Five o’clock arrived and the people of old fourth street increased in numbers. It must have been quitting time, or simply another day playing “SURVIVOR.” Interestingly, everyone was courteous and respectful and some politely asked questions.
That evening I sent a text message to Nick. “Nick, thanks for a good day, more to come!” What a great job we have! I think we both feel blessed for every day we’re given to do this. Thanks Cassy and Jan for allowing us this opportunity!
