A photographer friend of mine, Brian, put together a casual gathering to network and shoot at a place called StudiosLIC in Queens, NY. I met Brian at one of the first meet-up’s I ever attended in NYC in 2008 when I was first learning about photography and how to use light. For this shoot he brought a model he had worked with recently and others joined in the fun in front of the lens as the night went on.
Jessenia is from Florida and new to NYC. She was very nice to work with, great smile and doesn’t need guidance however, she's also open to feedback if you want her to move or stand in a certain way.
Mike is a guy that works at the studio and somehow ended up in front of the camera. I snapped a few of him as well. He didn’t seem to mind giving us his best for a little while in front of the camera.
Overall, this was a nice opportunity to meet some other photographers and get a chance to play in a different space. Thanks Brian for setting it up!
