Ekaterina - Bella Mentoring

A few favorites from my mentoring session with Mary Claire photographing Ekaterina. Mary Claire killed it with that head piece!

We discussed composition (framing in unexpected ways), hair light (how to find it), and pre-visualizing an image. I loooove teaching!

This last one is my favorite. Ekaterina naturally has dancer hands - meaning as she moves them she lets her wrist come down first like a dancer which gives her fingers a more delicate look. Crazy how much hands can change the feel of an image!

Tip: Always pay attention to a female's hands when photographing them. Sometimes before I even take a photo, I practice just hand movement with the person I am photographing. Not kidding! Try it :)
