When I schedule a senior photo shoot, either on location or in studio, I request that a parent or friend accompany us on the shoot. In Pete’s case, the family was on their way to the State Fair that day, so the whole family joined us for the shoot. There we were, firing away in the early morning light at Mears Park in downtown St. Paul, with everyone excited to hit the Fair.
We started out with portraits in the park, then moved on to “street” photography, shooting and walking, shooting and talking, exploring as we moved along. These are some of my favorite photos, with the extreme out of focus street scenes for backgrounds. It has the look of a photojournalistic approach, with images that are spontaneous, unfettered, real, truthful.
Congratulations and good luck to Pete as he enters The Carlson School of Management.
