Practice Shots












… As a young aspiring Photographer/Journalist/Designer/Film Director... I am steadily surrounding myself with people who are all experienced in there craft.. for one .. I have been taking sewing lessons from my grandmother .. I also set aside my mornins.. to be devoted completely to my readings.. where an hour goes exclusively towards news (world, fashion, sports) .. which leads me to the reason of why I have  been. hanging around the Brooklyn Circus.. steadily for the  couple past week.. not just for the clothes.. but for the inspiration that you get when circling yourself around young talented people.. who are all well respected and well mannered (Role Models). who portray the light of the BKC idea to its fullest… as for Collin aka the Circus Trainer.. Today began my training.. as I have been following him around the store.. with my handy camera.. while he begins to full heartedly enhance my photographic eye …. 


Tip #1: Master Lighting.. Don’t be afraid to lower the Aperture.. 

Tip #2: Rather than face the light .. have the light reflect off of the subject

Tomorrow I continue my training..
