Experimenting Part 2

After Allie had a much needed nap I decided to play around with Christmas lights and a heart-shaped filter (homemade with paper and tape.)

I liked the lights in Allie's eye in this first one.

For the rest of these I decided to use my on-camera flash. At the photowalk they used a studio light to the side of the model (which I tried to recreate by setting this up next to a window, but there just wasn't enough light - especially for a moving subject.)


I think the lights in the background would have looked better if I had used 2 strings and bunched them up more. Even better if I could have gotten different sizes of light bulbs.



Notice in this last one the hearts in her eyes. :)

I am letting everyone know--if you haven't signed up at the new blog, you need to RE-Sign up. Google doesn't let you take your followers with you. If you have already done so --sorry for mentioning it. I am going back and forth between the old and new blog plus my old and new e-mail and I can't keep it all straight. I am hoping to have the old blog finished up (moving everything) and closed down this week.
