Location Files .02

Good Morning New World,

 
I decided to put out another shoot location, in the DMV area. This one is Meridian Hill Park, or as a lot of people are familiar with Malcolm X Park. Meridian Hill Park is a structured urban park located in the Washington, D.C neighborhood of Columbia Heights; it also abuts the nearby neighborhood of Adams Morgan. The park was designed and built between 1912 and 1940. This 12 acre (49,000 m²) formally landscaped site is maintained by the National Park Service as a part of Rock Creek Park, but is not contiguous with that much larger nearby park. Meridian Hill Park is bordered by 15th, 16th, W, and Euclid Streets NW, and sits on a prominent hill 1.5 miles (2.42 km) directly north of the White House. (Wikipedia, 2016) The park is known for its beauty and community gatherings. In fact, one of the most popular activities happens on Sunday, at the Drum Circle. I have yet to go, but I heard it is quite beautiful. So, on to the real nitty gritty. I love to shoot in the park. The park has several locations to shoot from and each part looks as if you are shooting in Europe. The walls that border the park, alone, are excellent backdrops. Also, The waterfall is a must to shoot. The statues make for excellent props, while shooting. I did my first shoot there. Well, my first magazine submission shoot. The images never made it to print, however I still have the images. I did a total planning of that shoot and I was very proud of what I accomplished. When I become employed, again, I would like to start shooting again. I know, it takes time, but I am willing to wait for the latest adventure.


TTYL!

My First Shoot of 2012 (Update)

Hello New World,

Right now, I am preparing for my next photo shoot.

This shoot, I will be striving for a more high fashion stance, or at least the potential for it. I will be shooting at a skate park, with the model. I believe this will be fun. I am very excited to be working with two new faces, stylist Tamona Christian and model Amber Smith. Also, I can’t wait to test out this new lens I got from the Photoshop World Expo. This will be my first shoot with my Tamron 70-300mm lens. I am very excited to see what I will get.
