And today, is the perfect day, for a little pay-it-forward…
Adding a little spice to the sugar, today we invite you on a little trip…
Earlier this year, the lovely Michele Bernstein helped us on our photoshoot of TAURIEL in the forestry magic of Laurelhurst Park and this week wrote about it on her blog.
I had a great time working with Michele – she helped me with a huge reflector and did what I call “dotting the i’s & crossing the t’s”: making sure there were no weird clothing glitches or shadows or other stuff that the photographer has a hard time keeping track of in the middle of the fast paced work!
It was a challenging shoot – the light was soft and atmospheric – very overcast, meaning Nature’s Softbox was helping us get a really pretty diffused look.
But it was also very moist out – actually started raining and that was a “hidden” drawback. In my last two photo shoots, dealing with intermittent rain and heavy humidity has been very challenging. When you shoot outside, there’s usually nowhere to hide and you just have to keep going.
Something new I found that happens is the model blinks much more than when it’s dry out! So next time, I need to take a few more shots to fool Mr. Rain!
