And I went out in it to photograph! Craziness, but it was my last lighting class in Portland and I didn’t want to miss it. Besides I had Kristen to keep me company.
I forgot my tripod in the car, so until I bummed Kristen’s I was balancing my camera on anything I could find. This one is blurry, but to me that makes it more moody and I love it.
I usually don’t play with photos much after I shoot, just because I’m not a huge fan of lots of computer time, and I don’t want to date my photos with that “so 2011 post processing look”. But these lend themselves so well to it because there is no skin to mess up! I could show you a hundred versions of that one above.
Oh and did I mention it was rainy? That’s the haze you see on everything, pouring rain. We were soaked through to our underwear! Glad I went though. Kristen and I got some seriously good Mexican food (porque no so yummy!) that warmed us up. I’m glad I took this class I learned a lot about lighting and I’m not scared of my flash anymore!
