Ancient City Gymnastics | St. Augustine Sports Photographer
Before I left on my East Coast Tour with Flagler College, I did some sports photos for Ancient City Gymnastics. It was my first time doing photos for a sports team. It was also my first time using studio lighting! I was so nervous, but I think the photos turned out great. I was able to borrow lights and backdrop stands and such from my friend, Brian. It was definitely stressful, but all the work in the end paid off. I think the parents got some great photos, and I now know how to use studio lighting. Sometimes that just how you have to learn. Someone gives you a task, and you just figure it out. Sink or swim style.
The big group photo was a lot to pull off. It is just hard to stick 40+ people in front of a backdrop. But, you live and you learn.
Rich and I just bought our own studio lighting. We got Alien Bees, and they are a special edition turquoise color! It's all about the branding people! I will have to write a blog post about how to use studio lighting.
All is well so far with Danielle Brooks Photography in the first 2 weeks. In case you missed the announcement, check out the blog post about how I made the jump from Flagler to full-time business! Today is really the first day I can sit down and handle the behind the scenes stuff. I just wrapped up the Anastasia Baptist Early Education graduation photos. So I will be placing my print orders. I am glad to have a day at home to get stuff organized for the next busy season. Quickbooks anyone? I am gonna have to YouTube a bunch of information to learn how to get the finances in order. What are you all up to these days? How are things with you all?
