I don't do many model shoots. Since I don't hire the models and usually I don't set the scene or pose the girls, I don't feel like they are my pictures. But I did get a few moments to work with this model and took the shot. I bleached it out and turned it into a fashion "high key" look just for fun. This was part of the Chloride Az, shoot with Moose Peterson who gave us all kind of tips on shooting landscapes and models as well.
I got an opportunity to do an engagement shoot with Brooke and Josh, walking and cabbing around Chicago while taking some pictures. Had lots of fun. Thanks also to Samantha Lueders for her excellent assistance.
Moose Peterson showed up a corner of a building trick. If you stand at the corner of a building with a wide angle lens and the sides are evenly lit, you get this odd angle effect of the building jutting out at you. Interesting effect.
What do you do when you get a meeting cancelled and you have an hour or so to kill? Stop by the local botanical garden, which is what I did in Bellevue, a suburb of Seattle. Got a nice shot of these Dhjlia Roodkapje, which is what came up when I typed "8 red petals and yellow center". Whatever the name, very colorful flowers.
Today is William's 7th birthday. I took this shot a couple of weeks ago through the window screen while I was out in the backyard. He mostly runs away when I have my camera but I caught him before he knew I had the camera. Love this little guy. Happy Birthday, William.
