I shoot the unusual. I like beautiful subjects in dingy backgrounds. I really like it when my clients do too. I asked Melanie, a senior- what she had in mind for her senior session- she said, "I like your junkyard pictures." My grin said it all- I love the junkyard.
Seniors are really into the vintage, rustic, urban look these days, so I take quite a few seniors out to Old Town and the junkyard. While they make clothing changes, etc. I like to poke around and take a picture here and there of rusty, dirty, falling apart who-knows-what. While Melanie and her little sister Janelle were changing, I *finally* found the image I've been waiting for to base my "junkyard gallery" around. I'm planning a cool wall of old antique-y pictures for my new home's empty walls.
I'm obessed with depth of field so I'm sure all the pictures that end up on the wall will have a similar feel to them.
Next, the beautiful subjects of the evening:
Obviously this last picture and most others on this blog show my other obsession- the backlit subject. I love to backlight. YUMM!
Onto other things- I never mentioned that we did have another winner in my second auction- reader Brandon won the HUGE auction prize with his bid of $900. Brandon- you rule. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping out in such a gigantic way! Can't wait until our session.
