Drive by Photo Shoot
A drive by photo shoot. Sounds dodgy, doesn’t it? Two people clad in masks armed with a Canon driving by your home. Nah, not to worry, it was all legit.
We decided to spice up Father’s Day for the Durbanville dads with a drive by photo shoot. Each family had a 15 minute slot with the idea of documenting the strange times we currently find ourselves in. For some dads it was a complete surprise, others had time to plan, but we think all of them had fun regardless!
Leading up to the weekend, we’d had a string of glorious sunny days. We kept an ever watchful eye on the weather app, and no matter which one you went to they all said RAIN RAIN and more RAIN. Was that going to stop us? Was that going to stop our families? Absolutely not!
We had the most amazing day! We were drenched and looked more like sewer rats half the time than photographers, but it was SO much fun!
Our youngest participant was a tiny baby who was born just a few days before lock down. So this was his first time venturing out and it was in the pouring rain. We had the family dogs join in the fun, we had dancing in the rain, rolling on the grass and throwing of powder paint. We were even given take away coffee in a flask and some nibbles to keep us going.
From a photography perspective there are two things we learnt for SURE! Number 1, we can shoot in the rain, all day – it is possible. Number 2, I actually think we surprised ourselves as to how many images one can actually take in 15 minutes.
Durbanville community, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you! You were fabulous! We hope that we brightened up your day a little with our drive by shoot. Your support means the world to us, and we feel so grateful to be surrounded by such amazing people!
I think we may have started a little trend…watch this space…
