Zach’s mother contacted me a while back and when we were discussing ideas for his senior pictures the one thing she told me that we HAD to do was a burn out photo with his truck. The idea sounded fun and on the day of Zach’s session his dad came along and helped with that burn out photo. I learned something new that day. If you pour bleach on the tires before you spin your wheels, you’ll get more smoke and effect from then burn out. Zach’s parents had a burn out photo taken on their wedding day so obviously the apple didn’t fall far from the tree (if you know what I mean).
Zach also wanted some pictures at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta, IL since he’s on the Red Bud High School Trap Team. That was a first for me too. It was a whole day of taking pictures that I’d never taken before. It was refreshing and fun and ideas kept flowing. Of course Zach was all for whatever ideas I wanted to do, as most guys are. He never complained once about any of the poses I had him doing. He started off quiet and then by the end of the session he was talking more and told me he was excited to see his pictures.
Zach, I hope your senior pictures turned out the way you imagined they would. And thank you for teaching me all about burn outs and how to make them cool. I had so much fun with you and your dad that day and I wish you all the best as the rest of your senior year unfolds.
