Headshots, Headshots, Headshots!

So I never thought I would enjoy doing actor head shots......I concentrated on portraits, portraits of children, children, artists, and shooting theatrical events, weddings etc. Then I started doing head shots....a little here, a little there, and lo and behold....I found that I love doing head shots! Who knew!
I love the control, I love the moment when I see the client relax and begin to enjoy the shoot as much as I am, I love being creative about their look and I love seeing the results!

Here is the latest session I did....last week with a beautiful young woman!

I Heart Faces "Black and White" challenge

I'm entering this photo into the black and white photo challenge this month!

I took it while my son and I were setting up for a head shot session, he was sitting quietly looking down at a tool I use for setting white balances and I was checking out flash settings....I shot and the flash didn't fire which aggravated me but then later when I uploaded the headshot session this lovely silhouette was there......sometimes these things just happen....

After a little tuning in lightroom and photoshop....I love this photo!

So here I am sitting in my office at home again.....the weather is preventing much activity....and contemplating the power of nature....and how beautiful yet treacherous this snow/ice is.

I have managed to get out during each of the storms except for this one which is just too yucky though perhaps later...I will venture out....

I've gotten some awesome photos very close to home..... even though my fingers were stiff and cold and I was shooting quickly so my camera wouldn't get too wet....

I admire photographers who venture out no matter what the conditions and get photos and my ambition is to do that as well but I don't always do I want to share some of my photos from the past few weeks.

Just sit back and enjoy the beauty of nature!
