Circumstantial

I've got a photographer friend who recently opened up a studio in a local mall, and from time to time he'll call and ask me to come pose for him so he can practice with lighting, angles, various props, etc. Then there are other times when I'm just over there--with no intentions whatsoever of taking any pictures--and he'll talk me into getting in front of the camera. Below are shots taken nearly two months ago. In the former ones I'm in a reversible dress (A FlyTie creation, of course ;-) which is purple and a dark teal color, but in the second shot you'll see where he used Photoshop to make it a different color. Oh, and the beaded necklace belongs to a friend of mine who went with me to the studio that day. That day was a planned day of photography. The latter photos were taken impromptu another day while we were sitting in his studio talking and watching people walk through the mall.

Before these sessions it had been a long time since I'd had photos taken of myself that involved someone else besides me, the auto feature on my camera, and a box or something to prop the camera on.

Enjoy!!
(Maybe??? :-/)




(It was my idea to get behind the cage. i don't know. There something sooooo..forbidden about it!)

I *heart* the impromptu shots. They seem so YOU. Even though I don't KNOW you know you. I feel like they capture the person I think you are if we ever were to cross paths. So beautiful.

I wish I had a photographer friend. I've always wanted to do a photoshoot. lol

You are a great model, but then, again, you knew that, didn't you, my dear fellow Scorpio? :-)

Beautiful shots and wonderful clothes.

Greetings from London.
