Tears of a Bride

I took the above photograph as part of a Photography Workshop call WOW-8 (White Outdoor Wedding) photo shoot sponsored by Photo Binder and One Talent Source. The Workshop was scheduled to start at 3:00 pm and my wife and I arrived at the Brazos Bend State Park in Needville, Texas for 2:30 pm. Unfortunately when we drove up to the State Park it was raining. Fortunately it only rained for about an hour. When we started the photo shoot everything was wet and it was dark with overcast skies. Even though the conditions were not ideal there is always an opportunity for photography if you look for them. The models, hair styles and makeup artist were great. They did not complain about the weather are the wet conditions.  As soon as it stop raining the models went right to work providing awesome photographic opportunities for the photographers. With the help of the model, I took advantage of the wet mirror in an effort to portray an image of a brides’ unfulfilled moment.

I had never worked with professional models before until this workshop. From this experience I high recommend that if you get an opportunity to work with professional models jump on it. A professional model will make your work interesting and rewarding.
