Today's angular pursuits come from a little closer to home. My home I mean. Not yours. Unless you happen to live near me that is, in which case, let's do lunch sometime.

The first shot was one of the shots I took while designing a promotional poster for a gallery opening. The woman in the photo is a local musician, and swears she's never done any modeling. But she was completely comfortable in front of the camera regardless and a real pleasure to shoot.

In the second shot is part of the territory guarded by Robo-Hooter, our mechanical friend from a few posts ago. This walkway leads from the rear of the Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort down to the "strand" at Wrightsville Beach.

Stumble This!

What magic did you employ to get that shot with her and YOU reflected in the glass?

:-Daryl angling for an anwser

Daryl said...

Answer .. answer .. there's an S in answer .. no idea what an anwer is ... not angling for that at all.. nope

Daryl: No magic involved there. If you look at the right hand edge of the frame you'll figure out that's not me in the reflection. That was the guitarist she was playing with at the opening. As comfortable as she was in front of the camera, that's how self-conscious he was. I eventually managed to get a shot or two where he didn't look like he was the high school band geek asking the head cheerleader to go to homecoming with him. But it was tough.

I love the colors in the photo of the singer - the window, the stones the brick, her hair, and even the black of her dress -- and the sense that she is in some type of transition. Great shot.

It's a very emotionally intense shot; which the blue really compliments. I love it.

I've been to this place and interestingly enough, with a guitar player on a first date several years ago. What a delight to read and see these pics.
She does look like a natural. Well done.
