Samantha Novak’s Electric Forest Audition

I’m sure that anyone following the site remembers my shoot with the lovely and talented Samantha Novak. Those photos are actually just something that we shot on the side while working on her audition video to perform at the Electric Forest event this summer. Getting in would mean the world to her so, after you watch the video, go follow her on Facebook and YouTube. Then, share this around with anyone you can. She’s worked so hard for this, and any support will go a long way.

Corset and Clouds

In addition to this being the first in a series of portrait shoots I’m working on, this was also my first chance to work with my friend Mere. She messaged me a couple days ago to ask if we could do a series of her in her renaissance dress.

The dense cloud cover and rain threw a wrench in our plan of catching the golden hour light. We wound up leaving our original location in the woods for something more open because to take advantage of what light we had. Mere was so amazing through all of it, you’d never guess it was her first time modeling.  We’re planning a second shoot not too long from now, so keep an eye out for those.

New Fawn

I’ve been taking advantage of the summer weather while I still can. As a result, I now have a huge backlog of photos that need to be edited.  These were taken of the new fawn in the woods behind our apartment.

 

A new fawn has been showing up in the woods behind our apartment. It was so fulfilling to watch the little ones grow up last year.

This image, being shot with an off-brand 24-70, came out a bit murky. I did my best to get it all cleaned up, and create enough contrast between the fawn and the forest.
