Live Photography Demo at North Haven Camera Club

In early November of 2014, I had my first-ever opportunity to do a LIVE photo shoot at the North Haven Camera Club, to show how I put together a series of images to build a final image.

The concept for my proposed image was about college, and whether it was worth it. The idea was to show a teenager (my daughter, Olivia), standing on a stack of books, holding a coin under one arm – with hair flying, of course.

Here’s my original sketch:

I was back at the camera club in December to explain how I did the final composite using Photoshop.
