Kendra!/New Laptop

by Tiya

A couple of weeks ago I got to take a few of my friends’ Senior Pictures. This is Kendra (obviously…), and she was really fun to shoot, even though I think we were both nervous the first day of the pictures. Because it’s the rainy season in Uganda, the weather has been a little less than predictable. The first photo session I shot almost didn’t happen! Luckily it stopped raining (and dried up pretty fast) and we met up at my old school to take the pictures.

I made her sit in a gutter…

The last time I was paid for pictures was almost two years ago. The last time I photographed anyone’s senior pictures was over a year ago. Naturally I was worried that the results wouldn’t be good enough, but I’m extremely happy with how they look! Kinda helps that she’s pretty as well, eh?

In contrast to the clouds we had on that Friday, there was a fantastic sunset the following Monday, which was part II of the shoot. Not saying clouds are bad – I like clouds. Shooting in cloudy weather is great because there are no shadows, so there’s even light everywhere. But taking pictures when the sun is at its brightest gold in the late afternoon is also a treat!

There were Dragonflies – everywhere!

See them better now?

Well, that’s all there is to it! And to make this even better, this is the very first post I’m making on my new laptop! It’s a 15″ MacBook Pro and I think I may be in love with it. And because I already love it so much, I might post pictures of it in my next post (which will come with more senior pictures of my other friend).

Thanks for reading all my unnecessary blabber. ‘Till the next time!
