I'm having fun with this new software program I using to create fun videos combining still photography with music. I put together some of my favorite images that I took last year of local high school students. Many of them are high school students from Port Townsend but there are also some Chimacum High School students included in the video.
I had so much fun last year photographing Seniors from the Class of 2012 from both schools. I loved being able to photograph each one of them and trying to capture images that represented their uniqueness and also document this amazing time in their lives. It was fun to hear about their current interests and their plans for after graduation. They all had such a wonderful energy about them.
Everyone scheduled both an indoor and outdoor session. Leah's images are the first that come up on the video and I photographed her around downtown Port Townsend near the old Cannery. With her coloring her image really pops out standing in front of the entrance. The colors are amazing around the building with its cool doors and windows. Zander, the young man with the hat, was photographed around the Maritime Center and in front of the Port Townsend Museum. Many seniors were photographed out at Fort Worden. I would have to pay a fortune to have the selection of backgrounds in my studio that represent the variety of colors and textures you can find out at the Fort Worden State Park. Besides the basic gray walls many are covered with greens, and yellows mixed with lots of graffiti. The bunkers, the beach, the other old building, the beautiful beach grasses all make for great backgrounds for any portrait but especially fun for Seniors.
I can't wait to start meeting with the Class of 2013. I'm already checking out new locations to photograph Seniors this year. Give me a call today at 385-2662 if you want to set up a meeting to see some of the great products I offer, check out my Port Townsend studio and perhaps think about scheduling a session this summer. Getting a Senior session done early makes a lot more sense, and is a lot more fun, then being pressured to do something just before the yearbook deadline.
