I took this photo in California last November. This woman is a kick-ass drummer. She make look tiny and delicate..but she knows her stuff. I don't really know her. She was introduced to me through a mutual friend. I sat and talked to Shelley a week before the shoot. From talking with her, I came up with the concept and scene. We walked out to this area and were stopped by a local park ranger who said that photography was not permitted. Luckily, we talked the park ranger into letting us go ahead. The sun was already going down and we had to race to set up her kit and get going. Exciting! My two main subject passions are portraits and still life / nature. I have been posting a lot of my boring flower shots lately...so I thought I'd post some of my portrait stuff. Comments welcome.
