"In the House" Challenge

The challenge was simple, we were told to arrive at a decorated show-home, create three great images of a model in a short thirty minutes, edit, enhance and submit those images directly after the shoot. 

A simple but stressful exercise called the “In the House” challenge.

It is really a stressful test, with us needing to quickly look over the house for good props, backgrounds, light, and creative potential.  We meet models we have never seen before, Sebastian and Morgan from Anita Norris Model Management Inc.

It was a test to put our skills and confidence to the test and make good photos in a very short time-frame and most every member of the class was very nervous.  That certainly was a key part of the experience, to learn how to do the job and create good images under stress.

It was a rewarding experience with most of the students being happy with the images they created.
