I just managed to squeeze myself into Cheryl Johnson's People Imagery online photo class. I wasn't going to do it - usual excuses, no time, nobody will pose of me, etc, etc - but by chance, Lainey was talking about it during her class&crop and that was the push I needed. I enrolled myself a day after the class started.
The first class was the "Money shot", we had to several photos of someone, looking at the camera, catchlights, different facial expressions. I got my daughter to pose for me.
I did try to take some of my son too, who is much less cooperative, when we were stuck in the car, waiting for my daughter's drama class to finish. Later, when I was setting a chair in the hall to take photos of DD, he came along and I managed to get him to pose for me too. The photo came out dark and focus went to his his shirt instead of his eyes, but I absolutely love it, because I got this sweet smile of his which makes my heart melt. So it is a flawed, yet perfect photo.
This one I made in Lainey's crop. It is my daughter on the first day back to school. First class. Her class. And so is she.
