Week 7: Reflection

Throughout the internship, I can say that I’ve learned a lot from my supervisor and her crew. From the start of the internship till the end of it. It has been an amazing experience, seeing how much it takes for a photo session to happen. I had the chance to work with crew members that are willing to work together and network with me. My supervisor was able to give me flexible hours in which I would be able to work with her. Some days would be shorter than others and there would be some days where it would take most of the day to complete a photoshoot.

I found the whole process of setting up for a photoshoot interesting. I had the chance to work with soft boxes, different tripods, learn about different cameras and lenses that were being used. The amount of time and effort it takes to set up is just incredible. Everything comes into play, from the lighting in the room to the amount of space there is in the room.

This is a behind the scenes photo before the photo session began. You’re able to see the different type of gear being used.

I do want to say how I was encouraged to ask questions. If there’s anything I don’t know, to ask. I felt comfortable around my supervisor and her crew members. I wasn’t scared at all to ask any questions. Communication is key in the industry, especially when it comes to talking to clients and how they want their photo to be taken.
