I have finished processing the photoshoot with Cristina. I really like how a lot of them turned out. I picked a few of my favorites and added a new gallery to my portfolio section of the website. Have a look and feel free to leave feed back here on what you think.

Here is a sample of one pic that I used for the selective coloring process.
After a really long time of not getting to take any photos, I had the opportunity to do a shoot for a friend of my sister. She wanted to take some photos for a present to give her boyfriend. She wanted subtle sexy pics and didn’t want them to be too trashy. All in all it was a fun time. Like you would expect from most people, she was a little stiff and reserved at first but eventually warmed up. She also initially wanted them all in black and white, but then wanted to see how they turned out in color. So for the shoot I processed them both ways and also did a few with selective coloring. We used a red satin sheet so it was just screaming for the selective coloring.

Here is a SOOC image from the photoshoot. Still need to process the image to clean up background and adjust the color slightly.
Unfortunately I have been very inactively for way too long. I really want to get things going so that I can get a lot more comfortable working with models as well as get faster at setting up the lights and really capturing the shot I want. So I’m hoping once the new year begins I can really get on the ball and get some projects off the ground.
With that being said I was fortunate enough to be able to get a photoshoot in with Anna last weekend. She wanted to make a poster and decided on a sexy Santa costume. We experimented with many different poses, but she seemed to like ones like the photo to the left. I think she looks very hot! It took us a little while to get going but once we did it was a blast. We got some very funny shots, but also got some keepers.
We decided to go with a high key setup. For the main light I finally got to use my new Elinchrom D-Lite4 with a 4′ octa softbox. I would love to get a couple more of these lights because I like the controls and the results it produces.
After I get done processing the photos I’ll put up a gallery. There are still a couple ideas I have for some other photos I want to do with Anna. So hopefully you will be seeing a lot more galleries of her coming up.

Easter weekend I had the opportunity to do a photo session with Jami and her daughter Caitlynn. Jami had wanted to take pics of her daughter with the BlueBonnets. It has been storming here for a little bit, but we finally got a break in the weather and went out to a field I knew about. The BlueBonnets weren’t as full as colorful as they were earlier in the season, but it still made a pretty good setting. Caitlynn was great. In the beginning she loved posing, but quickly got tired of that and just wanted to play. This actually worked out to our advantage as it provided a lot of great shots! Kids are so fun to photograph. Their energy and playful spirit really shine through. Hopefully I can get all the photos processed and add some of the pics to a gallery in my portfolio section.
*UPDATE* Added a gallery in the portraits section for the finished photos.

The bluebonnets are in full bloom and are very popular for photos!
It is a beautiful time of year in Texas. The Bluebonnets have started to bloom and everyone is loving them. This past weekend I had a little extra time so I was able to stop on the side of the road and take some pictures. It was hard to get a shot of the field because people were eagerly trying to get photos of themselves or their family in the bluebonnets. I think I got a few good ones. I want to go back and try to take some more or find other fields. When I tried to go back to the one I that I already got, I was surprised at home many people were lined up on the side of the road. Apparently it became a very popular for people and photographers a like. I saw a lot of people out there taking senior photos, portraits, etc.
