The First Light

Recently I've been going through old images to better organize them in Lightroom, and I came across this one from almost two years ago.  It was my first time using my speedlites off camera and using umbrellas.   This is a young woman, Natasha, I believe, who modeled for us as we learned how easy it was.   Working with light at the time seemed so daunting to me but I was so surprised to see just how well one, or two little lights could light up this beauty!

It was so great to find this image and I added it to my recently updated website, that I stayed up 'til 2:30a.m. this morning revising!

Tea in the Sahara

For my friends at Beyond Beyond (2B)....  I was tied up this week with my Mom in the Hospital (she is all better now), so I edited this photo from about a month ago.   I thought it was a perfect 'bringing the inside out' photo!   We had to walk through these dunes with the most ornate tea set we borrowed from my friend's (the model) Mom.  Fun shoot in Yuma, Arizona!

Beyond the Sea

A triptych for Beyond Beyond.   I edited and created the template in Lightroom.  It's so amazingly easy (creating the templates in lightroom), I'm sure I'll do it again and again!  I used Kim Klassen's Frosted texture.
