Just about every photographer has their favorite spots to shoot.
For me, it’s West Point On The Eno Park.
What’s distinctive about this park is the Eno River and the dam that controls the river flow.
It’s simplistic nature at its best. And it’s a beautiful spot at sunset.
I came across this park for one of my first client shoots. But I always wanted to come out here at sunset.
Thankfully, Darbi was up for the adventure.
Every once in a while (like 1-2 times a year), I’ll come across someone while out and about who I think would look great in front of the camera. Yes, I get the creepiness of it all - a random guy approaches a woman and wants to take pictures of her. Typically I keep this sort of interaction short and I quickly hand them my card to show that I’m a real photographer.
On this particular encounter, it so happened that Darbi is also a photographer, which meant a random encounter turned into an hour conversation about a variety of things, including how she’s never had a real model shoot before.
Fast forward a few weeks, and we were both in waist-deep water as the sun was going down.
