I'm on the metro, it's close to sunset, and I'm heading towards Pont Alexandre III. I'm wondering if she'll be there or not, as I realize I told her Pont Neuf, which is on the other side of Paris and not the bridge I meant. My hope is that she realized from my description of the bridge which one I meant and that I have no idea of what I'm talking about.
So I get off at Invalides and head over to the bridge, to which she informs me she's running a little late and that she knew where I meant. So I take the chance to check out the area a little better and get some ideas of where to shoot, along with the other 15 photographers there that also happened to like the bridge, what a touristy move Sean...
So Ambreen (model) arrives and after about 4 minutes on the phone trying to locate each other on the bridge, we identify each other and start snapping away.
We started by the bridge then walked around a bit, taking photos along the way, aiming to loop back to Pont Alexandre III, where we started.
I thought about going near the Eiffel Tower, since we were very close, but I felt that was too clichy and chose to avoid it.
I was looking for pockets of light from the setting sun, for I think that's some of the more interesting light. I also wanted to try to get down to a newly renovated area of the Seine that I was eyeing for a couple days, but it was blocked off all around, and I know because I checked. I really wanted to shoot there.. :(
So after about an hour or so of shooting we decided that it was enough for the day and that we got some great shots, so she went her way, and I tried to find mine.
It was great working with her and everything went very well, although I never really feel comfortable shooting in very busy places, like Paris, although I can imagine it must be 10x more uncomfortable for her in that sense; but she did a fantastic job !
