This is the last image in the series and the last headshot for now. I hope you’ve all enjoyed the journey as much as I have enjoyed sharing it. Of course I wanted to leave you with a joyous shot. Something to lift your spirits after a long or difficult work week.

Something to revitalize you as you go into your well-deserved weekend off from work. And if you’re working the weekend then, something to help you power through it!

Fun with gels- Week 2, Day 2

It’s Wednesday and as we continue with our project, I wanted to give you another shot that I’m proud and thought would make you glance for a little while longer at the depth of the expression. I wonder how this and the other gel shots have been affecting their viewers.

Drop me a comment in the section below. I’d love what people are thinking.

Fun with gels- Week 2, Day 1

gel shot, Headshot, photography, Portrait, portraiture, self portrait, strobe photography, studio

We’re back and continuing the series we started last week. I realized something after I posted the images last week. I have to edit my headshots with a higher degree of scrutiny if I want them to look as polished as my full lenght portraits.

I started out doing headshots and left them behind for awhile. I know the level to which I used to edit my older shots and I told myself it was no longer necessary. For full-length shots, that’s absolutely true.

For these shots I’m going to show you this week, there has been quite a lot of time put into editing. More so than even last week’s shots.

Anyway… enjoy! πŸ™‚

Oh yes.. We’re doing more gel shots and they’re not going to all be happy and whimsical lol..

Different colors, different lighting, different expressions/moods.

I wanted to push myself and see what kinds of mood I could illustrate by mixing the lighting styles, background colors and facial expressions. What’s your take on the image I posted before two days ago? What’s your take on this one?

Follow the blog to see the rest of the upcoming shots πŸ™‚

A photo worthy of a Friday post!

C’mon. Look at the pose and tell me this isn’t a fun image to look at. I mean, that’s what we’re after, right? Creating images that intrigue people or provoke thoughts or, help tell someone’s story.

This pose is Melissa through and through. There’s no better shot to help usher you into a fun-filled, relaxing weekend. That’s a wrap for this week but, feel free to peruse my site and check out my other posts while you’re here.

Go create something! Or patronize someone else who does 😊

Windswept Wednesday? 😜

Glamour, natural light, photography, Portrait, portraiture

I love capturing windswept hair in my shots. I never plan for it but I love when it happens! On another note- Check out this pose and tell me it doesn’t ooze confidence! This woman’s swag is just off the charts.. She does her own styling and makeup and always shows up looking trendy and cute as hell. Then I tell her it’s go time and she’s on like a light bulb until I say “that’s a wrap”.

We click when we work together and that’s an awesome feeling to experience. Get out there and find the people who make you want to keep creating and push on through the rest of the week!

Oh. Windswept Wednesday could DEFINITELY be a thing πŸ˜„πŸ‘ŒπŸΎ
