This was an interesting situation. This young lady had a photoshoot scheduled with another photographer, but, for whatever reason, he was unable to make it and canceled at the last minute. She was already dressed up and didn't want to waste looking pretty, so she posted on Facebook asking if anyone wanted to take pictures with her. An hour later we were in a parking garage.

A security guard soon approached to see what we were up to. Apparently shenanigans are not uncommon in this location and the guard has to shoo troublemakers away. We weren't really supposed to take pictures in this area, but we were friendly and honest, so the guard not only let us continue, but told us some funny stories about things she has seen on the job.

I was worried about the rain, but Jimi likes the rain, so we frolicked a bit and even played with a water feature nearby.

We eventually took cover under a building that was being renovated, distracting some construction workers in the process.

That sounds like you had fun but I would not recommend this way of meeting a photographer who knows who or what might show up no offense to you.

No offense taken. I agree that meeting a stranger in a parking garage would be risky, but I wasn't a complete stranger. We had met a few times and had mutual friends.

Cliff, I like #2 and 4 best, primarily because of your framing and I think you caught some of Jimi's personality in them.

In fact, I think #1 doesn't work for exactly the reasons #2 and 4 do work. It looks overly posed and the window frame edges run smack into the back of her head. Contrast that with the placement of her head in the white open area of #2 and the dark area in #4. In those, she stands out from the background and it doesn't interfere with her.

Thanks for posting!/ScottGee1
