Shoot and Edit Week 4



Linking up with my mom for this week’s Red SOOC shot.

This weekend I had a mini Valentine’s Day photo shoot with Jordan. This girl can give some looks…especially when she is tired of playing model. I found some bright red props lying around and decided to have some fun with this week’s theme.

She told me that she “just wanted to take a peek”.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside…

This week we have gotten our fair share of snow…which means lots of shoveling, hot tea, warm mittens, and TONS of photo opportunities. Here are a few of my favorite shots of my sister in her winter clothes.

Self, Self, and more Self Portraits

Today I set up a white poster board, grabbed my camera and remote control shutter, and did my own photo shoot. Now, let me tell you: I probably snapped about 200 pictures in the short time I photographed myself and only these pictures you are seeing actually turned out good. So, for those of you who ask, “What’s your secret?”…there isn’t one. Patience is the key tool. Patience.

Since a lot of photographers are wary of pointing a camera at themselves, I’m challenging you all to link up and share a self portrait! It can be formal, silly, or unique! So, go get in front of your camera and have some fun!
