I meet beautiful people every day.
Truth be told, I can find something beautiful about everyone I see..and often I see many beautiful things about every person.
I’ve held myself back from going up to complete strangers, of whom I’d love to introduce myself as a photographer..that would love to take their picture. haha~
Lucky for me, I’m blessed with 2 daughters, and I find many things beautiful about them. They have grown up in front of my camera, so we have this comfortableness and ease that I think allows me to capture, in my opinion, very beautiful portraits.
I like to try new lighting techniques, and poses..such a wonderful creative outlet.
She’s my oldest and, honestly, they both are so much fun to photograph and even come up with great ideas and suggestions.
This shot is going on my wall, as a bw canvas. It’ll match a similar one that I have of my youngest daughter.
She’s a seamstress and a dance teacher..and her little fingers are great producers. :o)
love her dimples~
I have a set of black room dividers that I use to block/direct light and we decided to add them to the shot…I’ll use them more in the future.
It is true that there are some poses that work better with different body types and even personalities. I like to try different things, you never know how they will look, even if they are slightly uncomfortable at the time. She was fine here, just tossing her hair back, but I love it.
I have a new reflector, it’s called and eye lighter reflector..love it. It brightens the eyes and puts an extra pop on the face and neck.
Beautiful laughter..she laughs at me a lot, haha!
When she’s sitting, the light looks a little more dramatic, it’s up higher, since she sat down, so the light is coming down on her face..Butterfly Lighting. I could have used a reflector to throw the light back up into her eyes, and to soften the dark shadows under her neck. I liked this look, but we did use the eye lighter reflector for other sit-down shots.in the moment~
I love this shot..we moved the reflector closer, so you can see how light her eyes are now, and the shadows under her neck have been lightened as well.
You can see the reflector in the bottom half of her eyes in this shot.
Well, I’m very pleased with what we did.
I like the black backdrop..fleece..I just need to get more. Love the eye lighter reflector, and I love my subject.
Both of my girls are very sweet and good to me.
I’m so blessed~
“Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying, ‘Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, who sent His Angel and delivered His servants who trusted in Him, and they have frustrated the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they should not serve nor worship any god except their own God! Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation, or language which speaks anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego shall be cut into pieces, and their houses shall be made an ash heap; because there is no other God who can deliver like this.” Daniel 3:28, 29
