Elliot asked me to meet him at a parking lot on the west side of town. We arranged to start right around the time that the sun was setting. I knew we were going to be taking some pictures. Still, I didn’t know exactly how the project was going to unfold. We just started playing around with the possibilities, mixing stillness and motion, light and dark, props and the human form. And I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by what came out of this “Parking Lot Portraits” session.
I’m not a professional photographer. I did all the shooting with the built-in cameras on my iPhone 13. Still, Elliot had some creative ideas. And I knew just enough about photography from my years in videography what we could play with the variables a little bit. So, we took some photographs in the parking lot of Riverwood Community Chapel and some in front of the Don Joseph Toyota Dealership. And it ended up being a really fun way to spend an evening together, producing these parking lot portraits.
