Model: Lolli
Location: Alpine County, CA
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikkor 70-300mm

I wanted to go for a very moody image. The low ambient light, mixed with harsh sun spots and a long focal length, made for a slow shutter speed. Hand held. The resulting image was good, but I felt a little Fresco effect in Photoshop made it better. Lolli had a wonderful face that could emote any mood or expression. She kept me busy all day on this shoot.

Jillian was a delight to work with. Classically trained in ballet she knew how to present to the camera. I adore working with performing artists for this very reason. I would work again with her at the drop of a hat.

This blog will be my avenue to showcase some of my photography as well as provide entertaining, educational and hopefully inspirational posts describing my life as a photographer and the skills and lessons I’ve learned.

For those of you who originally found me on my other blog, My Split Level Head, and have migrated to here, I thank you for coming over. Blogging in new to me and I soon discovered that it it much more equitable to separate such specific art forms, photography here and writing there, into separate blogs.

I hope you will enjoy your time here. I know I will.
