In the studio with Lauren

I bought this pink sequin tablecloth to use as a backdrop for tonight’s photo session with my niece, Lauren. We ended up using it later as a gown. Not too shabby for improvising, huh?

In my studio-away-from-home with my niece Lauren, now in her pink hair phase (I love it!). She is as sweet and smart as she is photogenic. Thanks for modeling for me tonight, Gigglebean!

2014: A Visual Recap

2 01 2015

I’ve picked one photo from each month of blogging in 2014 to recap the year visually (starting with December 2014 and working my way back to January 2014). Now here’s to 2015—hoping it is another year of immense creativity, staying connected to family, nurturing friendships both near and far and old and new, growing my graphic design and photography business in fresh and challenging directions, continuing to dust off my rusty sketching and painting skills, decluttering my physical space, communing with nature, photographing more flowers and bugs, updating my garden with quirky and photogenic new plants, hitting the road in search of adventure (and fresh photographs), honing my writing craft, acquiring new skills and learning something new every day.

Christi

3 12 2014

I photographed my friend Dave’s younger sister, Christi, back in the 90s (during my romantic-vaseline-on-the-uv-filter days). I had some images scanned with ScanCafe recently and this was one of them. I love the painterly light on this one—I’m thinking I might need to turn this into a real painting.

Teresa

3 12 2014

I shot this of my friend Teresa when we were in college at Pan Am in Edinburg, Texas. I was definitely on the Renaissance-romantic-princess-fairytale-vaseline-on-the-UV-filter kick in those days. Oh, and I always had to fashion headpieces of flowers out of mom’s flower arrangements to complete the scene. Teresa was a beautiful subject for my lens!

A very different Nicole

3 12 2014

I photographed my friend Nicole several times many years ago (in fact, one photo of her ended up as one of two selected by American Photo magazine in their 2nd Annual Readers Photos Contest—I had two out of the 146 published!—in the early 90s. That photo had her in her “natural state,” with gorgeous Rapunzel-like hair (all hers) in a flowy golden gown. For this session several years later, I brought out my bag ‘o wigs and we decided to totally switch it up. I thought she looked like a mysterious French actress. I did a soft-focus technique with vaseline smeared on a UV filter and also upped the ISO of the film (slide days) to create the grainy look.
