On Saturday, I met up with Jesi in downtown Greenville, SC to do a photo shoot. She'll be graduating next month. Within minutes of meeting we were laughing and getting great shots. My priority, of course, is to get superb shots. But to me, the most important objective is to get the client laughing. As a man trying to show a female client a pose I want them to do usually gets them laughing. It's quite hilarious.
After a while in the park dodging walkers and tourist, we headed towards the train tracks at the end of N. Main St.. I have gotten some great shots from that location, and it is quite symbolic of graduating. Graduating is kind of like hopping on a train with an unknown destination.
I remember finishing high school and graduating college quite well. I thought I knew everything. I was way off in that assumption. Jesi is a gracious young lady that was easy to work with. I wish her the best of luck in her adventure. Do me a small favor and wish her well, too. She deserves it as so many hard working young people do.
