I rarely have an opportunity to visit Fort Worth, and it’s even rarer that I setup photoshoots there. This shoot was apart of a multi-model session. I met Abigail for the first time on-site and we hit it off right away. We started walking the great streets of downtown and found some beautiful backgrounds to work with.

The streets are full of life and in some areas, it can be really crowded and busy. During the shoot, there was a conference being held at the convention center so we had to work with the crowds of people.


What I learned from this set

Creating contrast in the set was a priority from the start of the shoot. I wanted to make sure Abigail stood out from the busy surrounding streets, so I kept in close with all my shots. I look back and wish I had gone with a wider lens so I could get some of the streets to add perspective to some of the shots. Overall, I love the way they came out.

Also, there was a great church that was located right off downtown and the hotel off I30. I kinda wish I had gotten some shots with the nice architecture and color of the stone. I think this would have been great with the dark jacket style Abigail was wearing for the second half of the shoot.
