I know it's April and it was 22 degrees the other day but I couldn't help posting this pic I took over the winter. I was driving around Cambridge and found a beautiful hotel in the woods. I've visited it many times since hoping one day to frequent it's spa facilities. This shot is of the forest which is on either side of the winding driveway.

Often when Abby was a few months old and I needed to get her to sleep I would put her in the Jeep and drive around for a few hours enjoying the countryside. It was hard getting used to a new place and my vehicle gave me the armor I needed to get out and see things. This picture reminds me of that time.

Fashion Photography - Class 5

Here is a sample from last nights class. Mikaela is an amazing model and I love working with her because it's so effortless. The lighting however, was a bit of a stretch for me. Normally I work with 1-2 studio lights and last night our teacher had us use 3 (2 softbox and 1 with grid) with 2 gobo's. I don't know how I feel about the shadow's across her face...

Also I did a bit more photoshopping that usual because I wanted to show something in black & white. Her skin really is that beautiful though ;)

Fashion Photography - Class 4

As promised here is one of the pictures I shot from my last class. Note to oneself... if you are going to buy clothes for the model, do not shop at Le Chateau. What are you going to do with $150 credit for a store you do not shop in?

We may have one more shoot before things wrap up and are interested in doing a period piece. My group would like something medieval or renaissance. I'll keep you posted on the outcome.
