The day after Seri and Seong’s wedding, I felt like a zombie. It was such a long and tiring day that all I wanted to do on Sunday was watch the game and sleep. But when Ja called to ask if I wanted to do another shoot with him in Silverlake, I just couldn’t get myself to say no. As worn out as I was, I knew I needed the practice and it had been so long since I’d done a shoot with my mentor (man, what a suck-up, huh? haha! HI JA!), that I said, why not?
I’m so glad that I went because our subjects, Caisa and Roger, were so awesome and looked so comfortable in front of the camera that I actually shot with my right brain more than my left. Though the midday sun had me scrambling for the right settings sometimes, I felt something I didn’t feel often before I got my own camera: comfort and familiarity. Wow. It was a fun shoot and I learned so much from just watching Ja direct and assure, watching Caisa and Roger take direction while putting their own personalities out there; and I learned that if I don’t think so much, that “money shot” that Ja always tells me I can get…I can get.
