Making a Masterpiece

Behind The Scenes

It takes more than a decent camera to create a photograph. A large part of the success for the images in this post goes to Ed Crim, local photographer and educator. Ed arranges weekly shoots at his Studio 858 in St. Ann Missouri and works hard to bring models and photographers together for a couple hours of training and practice. That said, with 4 sets, 8-10 photographers and some participants from a local dance school we are given 3 minutes to shoot each model on each of the 4 different sets. Three minutes is not much time to connect and capture a model. The young lady pictured below had a natural grace and followed direction easily so she gets credit for the balance of the success in this photo. Me? I was just in the right place at the right time.

I’ve added a page to my website with the behind the scenes images and story. It’s an easy read and I hope I’ve made it fun and entertaining. You can see it by pressing here.

I wish you all the best.
