Did a little engagement/headshot session today with Abla & Jeremy, up from Philly for the weekend.
I've been eyeing a site here for the past week that I wanted to try out, and this was the perfect opportunity... a little patch of country here in Brooklyn! In case you were wondering, no-- this is not a wheat field.

Here's the shot opened up....

And here's Abla's new color headshot. Drama! loves it!

"For relaxing times, make it Santori times..."

Something tells me that Drake (my husband) is going to walk away with a remarkable model's portfolio before too long.... :)

We spent last night testing out different studio set ups in our apartment, and here's my favorite.

Nature's hair fan

Shot Kristin & Liz in windy Tribeca on Wednesday-- there are a few inherent perils about shooting in Tribeca, which include
1. drippy air conditioners
2. perilous terrain
3. gusty breezes
4. security guards
But all of our risky behaviour was TOTALLY worth it!
Already finished the post-editing on Liz's kick-@ss new B&W....

Liz cooked us a delicious roast after the shoot.... (ummm, hellooo? a delicious roast!) and we had a lovely jury decide amongst the finalists. Kristin, here's one of my faves, but we'll wait for word from you before doing any post-processing. There are LOTS of great shots in there, wade through them patiently, and let us know if we should assemble a jury for you.... (facebook, maybe?)
UPDATE: here's Kristin's! (we picked the same one)

A lovely day :)

Well, our Central Park shoot went very well. I like to shoot friends together-- Mel and Kathleen seemed to put each other at ease very quickly. We found a lovely nook with magical light for our last site! They're gorgeous!! here's a peek...

Now it begins....

Welcome! This is all about the adventures of a girl and her camera in NYC (and abroad!) Today I'm heading out to Central Park to do a photo shoot with Melanie and Kathleen. We're going to scout some new locations, and I'm going to refer to my handy dandy photo guide to Central Park for some good stand-bys. Looks like the weather will be perfect!

Last night, Drake and I went to the Brooklyn Bridge to see the waterfall installations, and experiment with some HDR photography. Unfortunately, I fell immediately asleep afterwards, and so I was unable to see the results on the "big screens." As soon as he wakes up, I'll post them here :)
