Today I traveled to. . . ten years ago!
At least my face did for one of the photos that Leroy Hamilton captured as my classmates and I played with lighting that he demonstrated how to set up.
Leroy has had his work featured in USA Today, Variety, Black Enterprise, Written By, Upscale, Jet, Ebony, O Magazine and Essence, and it was easy to discern why as he encouraged some of us students out from behind to in front of the lens for some modeling. He made the experience in front of the camera almost as fun as being behind it.
Turns out Stega the dino D-SLR has a little more sensitive ISO than some other cameras, so I’ll need to start playing with that feature of hers a bit more before beginning to futz with other settings. We’ll see how that works.
Anyway, here are some of my favorites from the shoot.
