Window Light with Christina

Please click on each picture in this article – the images will show BIGGER and sharper.

I’m continuing with my personal photography project to shoot one person, Christina, over a period of 10 weeks. If you missed any of the earlier blog posts, see the three listed just to the right under “Recent Articles,” all with titles ending in “Christina.”

This week, we shot in a modern building with a lot of window light. The quality of window light is hard to replicate in the studio.  It provides a very flattering look and if the subject is placed close to the window, the light can wrap around her in a lovely way.

Christina has been joy to work with. Stay tuned for more images – we’ll be going to outside locations, now that the weather here in Connecticut is finally looking and feeling like Spring!

10 Weeks Shooting with Christina

Please – CLICK on each image in this blog post to see it larger and clearer. It makes a difference!

I’m psyched! Tomorrow, I begin a 10 week course at the International Center of Photography in New York. (See their website.) The course is about building a cohesive personal body of work. I’ve decided to photograph one person over the 10 weeks. My new friend Christina has graciously and enthusiastically agreed to be my subject and partner in this creative venture.

We’ll shoot in the studio, outside and at various other locations. The images will be headshots, full body pictures, and photographs that show some of Christina’s interests and talents (of which there are many – stay tuned!). We haven’t quite figured it all out – but will let the process take us where it wants to.

The images in this post are from our first shoot – just a couple of hours in the studio – last week. We’ll be posting images as the 10 weeks progress along. At the end, I hope to put the photographs together in some way – a book, a video, or a web-based slide show.

Thanks, Christina, for joining with me on what I hope will be a learning experience for us both and a great adventure!

(CLICK on the above image – and any of the images in this post – to see them larger and clearer.)

Our niece Chloe from Atlanta visited over Easter weekend. It was a joy to see this special young lady. Saturday morning, we took her on a shopping expedition. She’s seen here below at Saks, in an iPhone photo.

Thanks for visiting us, dear Chloe. It was a fun weekend – shopping, a play, Easter service at our church (where we could show you off to our friends!) and brunch at the beach. Come again, dear one!
