  • Read all of the details below - great stuff!

    We've done a few walkabout photo shoots with models and they're always popular.  We find a location to start and "walk about" shooting the model at various spots. This type of shoot gives you the opportunity to get some great images and have some fun doing it.

    This has been fun yet I wanted to take this idea to another level - so, this time, I've lined up an outstanding model that will be made up as a crazy fairy for this walkabout! Our talented model, 8, will interact with the First Thursday crowd while we capture her antics!

    Our modes for this walkabout will be 8. Yes, that's what she goes by - or as she says, "it's 8, darling."  You can check out some of 8's work at this link. I've also lined up talented makeup artist Anna Fugate to transform 8 prior to our shoot.  For those of you who've wanted to shoot something completely different - here's your chance!

    We’ll meet in front of Guero’s Taco Bar (1412 S. Congress) at 6 pm and walk around South Congress shooting until about 8 pm. If you show up late just look for the group with the camera flashes, commotion and laughter!  If you can't make it right at 6pm, I'll be sending out my cell number so you can text us to find us.

    Great weather, South Congress, and a great model - let's do this!

    I just checked the "hourly" weather forecast for today. It's supposed to clear up this afternoon but it looks like it might be a bit chilly this evening.

      I apologize. I feel so silly. I'm so excited to be finally coming back to the ATX that I posted my comment on the walkabout shop instead of the the Insanely Amazing Fairy Shoot!!

    Brian, it's not the lens that is distorting for those close-ups, it's perspective. I'll explain when we're at the shoot.

    Mike, I think a mid-range would be ideal. Ultrawide (like a 12-24) may lose the subject. I would probably choose a[masked]

    For this shoot I'm thinking mostly on the wider range - and I'm thinking it because it seems more about the model IN the environment in the costume than about getting in tight. Longer lens here I suspect mean better chance passer by's stepping in front of you as well (assuming you go back to get some of the environment).

    Tim, am I off base in my thinking here?

    March 18, 2013

  • Brian U.

    yeah, even with the 1.6 crop sensor...it's a tough call. I will bring both but I am thinking the 70-200. I think the 12-24 will distort too much on close-ups...true?

    March 17, 2013

  • Tim

    Tough choice - the[masked] will suit you better of the 2 lenses.

    March 17, 2013

  • Brian U.

    I shoot a 7d and have a[masked] and a 12-24 f4

    March 17, 2013

  • Tim

    Brian, I will definitely be there to help you out! What lens(es) do you have and which camera body?

    March 17, 2013

  • Brian U.

    thanks Tim, I am new to this type of photography...will there be people who will help me learn? Whats a good lens choice?

    March 17, 2013

  • Tim

    Hi, Brian. We just shoot with available light - some people bring their speedlights on their camera. It's nothing elaborate.

    March 17, 2013

  • Brian U.

    How doe the lighting work for this walkabout?
