Take 2! I was shooting at a highschool gymnastics meet Monday and met the most interesting couple! He is from a tiny town in Minnesota, she is from the Philippians and they met in Dubi. We talked about everything from race cars to gun laws and apparently in her culture it's considered an honor to have their photo taken. That lead to a completely impromptu 15 minute shoot in the hall way! Thankfully I had my brand new flash with me and I cranked it up to black out the back ground. It worked good for her height but he was so tall the light is kind of hard. Monochrome because I didn't wait long enough for the flash to recharge and shot was too good to waste! _IMG5918 by Jim Stainer, on Flickr _IMG5909 by Jim Stainer, on Flickr Another no flash shoot that was too good to toss! _IMG5876 by Jim Stainer, on Flickr She was having so much fun it was hard to get her to not smile! _IMG5839 by Jim Stainer, on Flickr Humm now that I look at that last one as a jpg I think I got carried away with the luminance noise reduction slide. But aren't they adorable? It was so much fun and I am SOOO happy with the results. Even better is so is my new model friend and as soon as it warms up we are doing a real shoot outside! What an adventure it is to carry around a camera!
