Not everyone gets the chance to work with a model, so when I got this chance, I took it. Getting to work with a professional model doesn’t happen a lot at my age, so I was very proud of my work. I chose a picture of a person because I can tell them what to do to get the photo right, and with trees or plants you can tell them what to do but they won’t listen. At first working with people is awkward because it feels like you’re bossing them around, but after a little time you get used to telling them how to tilt their head or where to put their hands. I have gotten to take pictures with my Uncle, but we usually take pictures of inanimate objects so working with a model is different. I have only been into photography for three or four years but so far it is one of my favorite things to do on my free time.
