Style on “Snow Day” – Test shoot with Houston creatives

Test shoot with Houston creatives
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

This didn’t technically happen on “snow day” in Houston, but it was quite frigid…and I like alliteration in headlines.

A couple weeks ago, on a cold and dreary Houston morning, I met up with a group of creatives/small business owners to network and hone our skills. I planned to photograph a high school senior during the allotted time of the styled shoot, since that’s an area of work I really enjoy and was hoping to promote in my retail photography. Unfortunately, the senior model booked for the day didn’t arrive in the time frame I was available.

But, lucky for me, there were a couple of lovely ladies on hand who took a few minutes to step in front of my lens for some test shots. One is a model who happens to work as another photographer’s assistant…Brittany. In her free time (is there any?), she is also an aspiring photographer herself. And the second, Karissa, is a travel blogger who promotes solo travel for the female variety through her blog, workshops, and vacations, of course. Check out She Flies Solo.

Bloggers in need of a fresh 2018 portrait? Seniors, Class of 2018, who haven’t booked those senior portraits? Here is a tiny sample of what NEP can offer you.

Photos + emotions = Emotos

Faces

Emotos
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

Not too long ago, if you wanted to smile in a text message or email, you typed a colon and closed parenthesis, like this 🙂 Then emojis came along and advanced things quite a bit with colorful little smiley faces, hand signs, creatures and more. And now there are Bitmojis and probably a plethora more of customizable cartoons to portray your emotions via text, Snapchat or various social media platforms.

So along with emojis, I threw in a bit of Andy Warhol and The Brady Bunch to create a series of portraits that show emotions and/or the various faces we make…Emotos.
