Oh yeah baby! What a pleasure it was to ride along in one of these beauties!
As you know, I do not get the pleasure of shooting senior portraits very often. However, when I do, I am reminded of just how much I love it!
Had a blast spending an hour with these beautiful preteens. Two are my own twins (biased much?) and the third is their shared BFF!
Last night a group of my former photography students and I went to Windy Point to photograph the skyline. We didn’t think we’d see the fire from there, just the smoke. In a matter of hours the fire had climbed over the next peak and was visible from our vantage point. As of 10:00 am today, people are being evacuated from the area at the base of the mountains. In this photo you can see the fire cresting the ridge (far right).
Here we are as a group earlier in the evening. You can see the smoke pluming behind us.
For years I have been wanting a Lensbaby. I first heard about them when I noticed a college’s new twist on portraits. When I asked how she took the images, she said, “with a Lensbaby!” I thought, “what the heck is THAT?”
Needless to say, I immediately looked into it and ever since, have been waiting for the day when I would own my own. Well, that day has come, and I must say, this fun, creative lens was worth the wait! It takes some getting used to (all manual focus on a tilt!), but what better way to crash course yourself than with highly spirited, fast moving Arabian horses?
