After taking photos of Aaron twice, I wish I could convince him to book yet another session. :) I, like I always say, had a great time photographing this young man. He's got a contagious energy and witty humor that makes the time fly by. Usually people won't be willing to let a teenage boy jump over them with a scooter in the local skate park, but Aaron was all for it! Shots like those are the ones that keep my job interesting!
For Aaron's pictures, we decided to stay in the West Bend area because we knew of a great little mini waterfall that would make for a great light painting picture by night, and a great backdrop by day. Using shade and some off camera flash we were able to get some really nice and balanced photos. I've noticed that posing guys has quickly become one of my most difficult tasks. To counter the recycling of simple poses (hands in pockets, arms crossed, hands together) I've started to more actively seek out entertaining backgrounds and more creative compositions overall.
