Well the Bluebonnets didn’t turn Red but you would think so, since all we saw was Red Paintbrush Flowers everywhere.
We did our annual Bluebonnet photo shoot out this past weekend in Texas and some of the BlueBonnets were missing because it was more Red this year than Blue. We had over 75 people attended from all over Texas. This was our first workshop in over a year of hyatus and it was so much fun. We had 35 models and 35 Photographers signup with 7 Mentors help out with groups for the newbies.
We were prepared for Rain but we had perfect weather – the sky was like a softbox and the sun popped out a few times. We had models of all ages and some were TV Celebrities and Radio Personalities. We had new models and old timers that return every year. Many thanks to our Mentor photographers that help those in need and help group some fun shots. We got some amazing images being posted now in our Texas Photo Shoot Workshops Group on Facebook.
We shoot for three hours in the morning in Brenham, TX. This shoot was one of the first ones we did that bonded most of us Mentors all together. We’ve been friends ever since. We shot at the Ole Baylor Park in Indepence Trail where we have lots of shooting opportunities.
For those that don’t know about Bluebonnets, they only come out once a year. It’s the state flower and is one of the things people come to Texas to see. We have other wild flowers that sometimes over come the bluebonnets later in the last weeks of the Spring.
Join us for our next workshop as we shoot at a Ranch style setting with the concept of Victorian – Steam Punk – Old Wild West attire on April 25, 2015 in Richmond TX in the evening where we are going to shoot til dusk to capture the sun setting and some use of color gels.
