It felt so good to get into the portrait studio yesterday, I can hardly contain my excitement. Of course, there's still so much to learn and try - all I did was take what I've learned in class and manage to do it on my own. My friends Marie and Jamie came to pose for me, and I think you'll agree they're naturals. And totally hot.
(Above is me, seeing if the lights were working. They were.)
I started with a black backdrop, which is actually just the wall. Here they are.
Next we rolled out the white paper. I climbed up on a ladder for most of these. That was fun.
Once it was pretty much a wrap, Matt showed up.
Then Jamie took some pictures of us two. I felt surprisingly nervous on the other side of the camera.
A prize to whoever comes up with the best caption for this photo. One suggestion might be, "What's Happening To My Body?"
It's a rainy Sunday and it hasn't broken 50 degrees. I've only ventured outside onto the "veranda" (the little rooftop outside our windows) to take some abstract pictures of the fire escape, but that about did it for me. If you need me, I'll be bundled up in wool, editing pixels until my eyes cross.
