Kelsey’s Summer Photo Project, Pt. 2

Kelsey O’Brien is a junior photography major and advertising minor at West Virginia University, and we’re excited to have her here at Phlearn for the summer. Kelsey is producing and shooting a large scale photo as part of her internship, and in this episode we talk about the shoot pre-production. Join us as we take you through the entire process of finding models, solving problems, and making it happen!

Changing Your Concept

Once you get into the pre-production stages of a photoshoot, your concept is 99% likely to change. Kelsey had to alter her concept multiple times in order to settle on something that would be realistic yet still look amazing. You’re also likely to learn a lot about stuff completely unrelated to photography during this stage – Kelsey now knows a lot of terms pertaining to cranes and tree trimming.

3D Modeling

Using 3D modeling can be a great way to help plan out your concept. Once we spent some time to create a quick 3D model of our concept, we were able to tell what angles we would need to use, etc. If you don’t know how to use a 3D modeling program such as Cinema 4D, no worries! A pen and paper works just fine.

Make sure to become part of the Phlearn Family on Facebook, conversate with us on Twitter, and #hashtag your Phlearn inspirations on Instagram. We want to know what the Phlearn community social chatter is about, and who is sharing it. You all keep us motivated to do our best.
