In July, Andre and I organized a photo shoot for LAITS staff and graduate students from a couple different departments. I emailed all of the staff without photos and graduate student advisors. I created a sign-up sheet as well. On the day of, Brian Schwartz and Selene Alba helped Andre teach me how to set up a shoot with strobe lighting. Throughout the days, Andre helped me improve my skills regarding working with clients and making them feel comfortable. I ran the shoot, switching off with Paulina on who was taking the photos.
After the shoot was over, I learned how to breakdown. Then I was in charge of working with the photo metadata, renamed the photos and picked the new photo for each person. Then I cropped photos and added them to the COLA DB. Finally, I emailed grad students with their new photos, if they asked.
This was a great project to be on. I learned a lot and feel comfortable conducting my own shoots now.
Here are some of the photos from the shoot:
