Okay... I get this phone call from one on my closest friends and she starts off by the "How you doing... blah, blah, blah." and chit-chat begins. 3 minutes into the conversation she said that she was at the local park looking for a place to set up a tripod for family portraits and then she's headed to Wal-Mart with the flash card. OMG! I stop her, grab my bag and head out to the park for a 3:30 pm, extremely overcast, windy and cold, kids shivering session. I shot the family, then the 3 kids together and started individuals and when each is done, I shuffle them to the car. 3:45... we're outta there. Here are some of the shots. I have already edited one set of these at her house on my "super slow" laptop and they look good. These are my empty house all alone edits. Before the discussion begins (and C&C are always welcome), I have aged the photos like this on purpose because I like the underexposed yet blown blacks look in this, my ever growing style. Knock yourselves out!
