En pointe

12 05 2008

Early Sunday morning I photographed Alexa again, with the goal of getting a stellar cover image for the July/August issue of Hearing Loss Magazine. I first met Alexa this past December when I photographed her performing in The Nutcracker Ballet (https://cindydyer.wordpress.com/2007/12/01/beauty-and-grace/), presented by the Classical Ballet Theatre (http://www.cbanva.com/).

I did get a really great image for the cover, but it will be kept under wraps until its debut in early June. In the interim, I’ll share some of the other images I did this morning. I played around in Photoshop with these two still-life-type shots, using several of Doug Boutwell’s Totally Rad Action Mix actions to get this dreamy sepia effect. What a great way to make a nice photograph more special. I highly recommend these great actions! Check out his revised website here: http://www.gettotallyrad.com/

Excellent! The sepia works perfectly. The approach and the angle of the top image is very novel. Thanks for sharing.

Powerful images, nice sequence – they rival Steve Hanks’ watercolor paintings. The three shots would make a great poster – hey, you print ’em and I’ll frame ’em!
