Teaser – more to come


I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with my friend Darlene and create some awesome images. We were treated to a beautiful Southern California evening in Laguna Beach. There are a lot more from this shoot that I can’t wait to share, but for now here is one to hold you (and me!) over.

As the sun was setting it cast a beautiful golden light that really made Darlene’s eyes pop. More soon!

Portrait at Dusk

A Girl and a Guy


Last post for 2012.

I continue to try to improve my portrait skills, so here is one of a pretty girl and a handsome guy! (my wife and me 🙂 ).

Girl

Self Portrait 2 I am testing out some new software and re-processed my self-portrait. I like it quite a bit better.

A Portrait with a Hat


This is the follow-up color photo relating to my post below.

I love this photo for a few reasons. First, the setting this took place and how it came about. This picture was shot on my apartment patio in a quick fit of creativity as me and my wife were heading out to run errands. The green backdrop is a table-cloth that I had forgotten on the patio from the previous week. I saw it and realized it was an opportunity to ‘spice up’ the photo and threw it over the laundry compartment door. I think this came out looking so interesting for how quick and ‘by-chance’ it all came together.

The second reason, is the hat. I bought this hat for my wife about 2 or 3 years ago, thinking it was cute…she thought it was cute too! But, alas, living in Southern CA does not give too many opportunities to wear Eskimo hats…She finally got to wear it for a purpose and now I have a great lasting memory of it in case she never wears it again 😉 ! The third, but not last, reason I love this photo is obvious, it captures my beautiful wife in such a lovely light. It is a memory I will have for the rest of my life.
