For this DOWNTOWN PASADENA ENGAGEMENT we took a slightly different route around the area. Most times people just head right in and bask in the architecture, they miss the other good stuff. I like to wander around outside and find nooks that are rad, over looked and most importantly underused. This is one of the main reasons when I shoot here we get original shots and not the stereotypical stuff. Don’t get me wrong though, I know where the money shots are and I get them…I just don’t care too much for them.
So what do we do when starting a DOWNTOWN PASADENA ENGAGEMENT ? The first thing I do is start on the outer streets. It’s here you find what’s over looked. Everyone is so focused on the main prize they forget that anywhere you go can be the main prize. Make sense? We run around making our way into the main area. Once we get into the main area I like to do the ” normal stuff ” first to get it out of the way. After, we look for the abnormal. The spots that no one has noticed, the different framing that can be done and little interesting pockets of light.
For Kathy and Michael’s quick session I did nothing different. It was high noon so all that changed is I had to rock spots I normally wouldn’t have noticed 🙂 Adapt and conquer.
