Amelia


So, I've been away for awhile. I am staying more than busy at work and with being the Assistant Director for the play "Steel Magnolias" which will be presented in September in Greenfield, Indiana. It's been a lot of fun so far, but I have little or no time to create art. So for now, I'll stick to my photography and begining in October...I'll be back to art.

Amelia was my gracious model for the day. We have a meadow full of Queen Anne's Lace that I wanted to shoot in, so I asked Amelia to put something white on for the shot. She has a few antique items, so she picked this slip. I love it on her.

We took some props with us into the meadow...an antique lace table cloth and an antique chair. Even though the shoot started out a little rocky, we soon got into a groove and were creating magic.
After we decided to call it quits because our legs were being eaten alive, we quickly came in and downloaded the pictures and I began to play. After making some minor adjustments and cropping the photos, I opened them in Photoshop and started using some PS Actions created by Florabella. I'm loving these Actions and find that it makes editing so easy.
As you can see...Amelia makes it a joy to photograph her.

Georgeous........she's beautiful and your photography is stunning!

Even though this isn't paper and glue and some glitter thrown in....it's just as amazing!

Hope you see you and your 'other' art in the Fall!
