I have been super busy, in the studio this week, putting together some more lessons and preparing for a few presentations.

In the studio…Kodak and Hydraganeas

It’s quiet and calming and there is a rhythm required that stills the mind and allows you to concentrate on the task at hand. Plus I really enjoy both the shooting and the editing of…

In the studio – a little vintage love

I bought this vase, pearls and such for our Gatsby shoot a few weeks ago, so sad that it was still just sitting there. There have been no other shoots. Before I packed it all away I thought I might do a little vintage love and some light painting. That vase and the pearls were…
