Like I mentioned in my previous post, I had the pleasure of participating in a photographer photo swap. Trude and I had been wanting to do it for some time and when she found out that her blog friend Caroline was in town for the holidays she coordinated the photo swap. I have to say that I was very relaxed having my photo taken by the girls, but also loved how much I was able to experiment and play without doing too much directing or posing since we’re all photographers and know how to roll!
For those of you who speak photography out there. These shots that are tilted or seem cropped are actually all SOOC (not one photo is cropped) with just a boost in contrast, brightness and the occasional fun B&W or vintage action. I loved how they turned out, I went a little crazy on the tilting, but overall I’m happy with the results. I feel that with this shoot I really learned a lot on getting more SOOC shots exactly the way I want them in terms of the crop.
Caroline was so fun and I can’t wait to do this again in the Spring. She’s a fantastic photographer so if you’re in the San Francisco area check out her work. She’s also a very talented scrapbooker and all things design. We bonded over the fact that we both use lot’s of garlic in our cooking and hope to get to know her more via her blog and on our next meet up. Caroline, you are such a beautiful person all throughout and I’m grateful to have captured all that is you.
Cool scarf right? She made it herself, yup… she’s talented like that.
One of my favorite close-up shots of her, just captivating and so natural.
All natural sun flare and sun spots-photogasm!
Love her “sexxy look”, it’s as if she’s done this before.
What is your favorite shot? I have too many and I’m still in awe of all this goodness. Just when I think that it can’t get any better, another shoot proves me wrong. Stay tuned for Trude’s pictures coming up soon, one word-amazing! What a great way to end the year.
