Video Slideshow with Christina

 

 

 

 

For the last couple of months, I’ve been working on a personal project  photographing one person, my friend Christina. Here’s a video slideshow of many of the images we created together. The pictures were taken in the studio, at a park, on the beach – and other locations.

Be sure to turn up the volume to hear Christina’s lovely singing voice on the soundtrack. And expand the picture so you can see it fullscreen size!

The song “True Love Ways” was written and originally performed by Buddy Holly. I’m showing my age by saying this was the first song I remember really being engaged with as a young boy in North Carolina in the late 1950’s. When I first heard Christina sing it in concert with her group “Gunsmoke,” I was blown away by her amazing voice and knew this was just the right music for us to use in our video.

Enjoy!

Regular readers know that I’ve been working on a continuing personal project with Christina, pictured here, to photograph her over a period of 10 weeks, in a variety of settings.

If you missed some of the earlier blog posts, see the blue links to the right, with Christina’s name in the title.

Last week, we went to a local beach cove and took pictures from about 5pm to 7pm.  With some clouds around and the sunset fast approaching, the light changed every few minutes. So, it was necessary to continually adjust camera settings as well as the strength and angle of the flash. I get spoiled in the studio where I can instinctively set and control my light for hours on end! But this evening was good practice for staying on your toes as conditions changed.

For this shoot, I was ably assisted by my fabulous new 12-year old photo assistant, Ridgely. I used a small flash unit in most of these images and Ridgely held the light for me. But she also held “flags” (you have to look up what a photography flag is!), did some fashion styling and was generally a big help all around. Thank you, Ridgely!

Christina and I are coming to the end of our project – sad to say! I plan to pull together a few of the images from each of our shoots into a video slide show. Stay tuned for details. Christina – you’ve been a joy to work with!

In the Park with Christina

 

 

Having terrific fun in my continuing photography project with Christina. This week we went outside for the first time, to a local park. If you haven’t seen any of the pictures from our earlier shoots, check out the blue links to the right, with the name “Christina” in the title.

We just have 2 or 3 more shoots to do. I’m beginning to think about how to bring together many of the images from our 10 weeks of pictures. It might be a video slide show of the photographs, with Christina singing one of the songs she has written and performed. You can hear her terrific voice at Christina Mae.

Stay tuned – literally and figuratively! Thanks again to Christina for collaborating with me on this creative adventure.
