Oh this model was such a good sport…it was really hot that day and she modeled like a champ, with a light coating of powder all over her. This is what happens when I get loose and the museum and decide that I MUST do a statue shoot. No, I couldn’t wait till fall 😛
May 2005 was my turning point for photography…it went from being a fun creative outlet to, wow, I want to do this for the rest of my life. I’m marking this as my 10th anniversary for photography even though I technically started earlier. These two shoots were instrumental in that turning point.
Heather and I get a little silly at times (gotta have fun while shooting, it’s my law), and I was seeing and shooting way too many just topless shots, so we decided to reverse that concept. I love the look in her eyes…a hint challenging yet at the same time, perfectly natural standing there.
I love working with a team…but I love being one on one with people too. This young woman has been doing figure modeling on the side for quite some time…other careers have included management and the Peace Corps, and now she’s getting her Masters. This shoot took place in just under an hour with some chatting. I’ll show you more in an upcoming entry, but that one will require more writing time. I love the elegance in her movements!
I don’t know what’s up with ivy and I…it keeps popping up in photos, I have it decorating my bedroom, and even have it tattooed on my ankle. I like vines, I like the way the green takes over. There are some wonderful buildings in NYC covered in it.
