Recenlty, reorganizing my photos, sorting from one disk to another, I found a folder of an unexpected small photoshoot I did last year. When I was studying photography in Bogotá, at Labloom Academy, some girls from the fashion production course were in trouble due to technical problems with their camera and went looking for a photography student that could help them. And, gladly, there I was.
They were doing the final exam where they nedeed to portray a fashion style, and when asked them what look they were looking for with the photos, they said they wanted to represent a fusion of styles between Madonna and Cindy Lauper and wanted a very natural session.
I loved doing these pictures. Back then I had done many portraits but never a session that approached so much to a fashion photo shoot. Since I did it, I discovered that this is the type of photography I enjoy the most and the one I would like to work in as a professional.
One of the things I liked so much about doing these photos was the lighting. The place we where had two large windows and white walls, and as the day was quite cloudy, the light was very bright and soft at a the same time.
I remember that day my teacher asked to see some of the pictures I had done and he told me I had an eye for photography. That was a great incentive to motivate me to continue learning and practicing to achieve my dream of one day working as a professional photographer .
Unfortunately, since then, I haven’t had the opportunity to participate in a session like this and I all i think about is when will the opportunity raise again.
