Portraits for a Tempe Photographer

Fellow photographer Jenn Wagner and I connected last week to do some portraits of each other. We got together at Tempe Towne Lake and headed over to the Tempe Center for the Arts. After taking a few photos at the Arts Center we went over to the old railroad trestle. The bridge is called the Arizona Eastern Railroad Bridge. It was built in 1912 and features steel beams with the date cut out of the top lintels. It’s so old that you could walk up to it, think it’s out-of-use and then decided to cross it only to get flattened by a speeding freight train — we almost were. It’s such an honor when a fellow photographer asks you to shoot their portrait and Jenn and I just had a blast. Enjoy the photos.

    KayKay - Great photographs. I’m loving the concept of these photos, the colors, and clarity. I especially love the one where she’s posing with her Canon, trying to take a picture of you. Great work!

    maripereira - Wow, she has beautiful eyes! It must be easier to take portraits when the model is this charming. The background also looks very good. At what time did you take these? The sky looks a beautiful shade of purple.

    You two must’ve had a fun time taking pictures together. It’s a great moment to share experience and tips and further improve your art. Great job!

    Linkzelda41 - Oh wow, when a photographer asks for you to shoot photographs of them, I would imagine that they would provide useful insight and critique compared to someone who may be less devoted to photography. Especially since how most clients may be more accepting because you would provide them what they need and aren’t necessarily too picky on things. Having that interaction with another photographer definitely helps see one’s work in a different perspective.

    Beautiful photos for this, and I definitely like the second photograph simply because she’s showing a radiant expression. I guess it could be the cheeks and how the outfit in general shifts the focus to the face more. I wish I could save up for a nice camera in the future so I can take more accurate shots instead of warped self-portraits of myself.
