Angela

About a month ago I was going through some photos of my friends and realized I barely had any current ones of my roommate Angela. This clearly had to be fixed! So last week she got all fancied up and we strolled around the neighborhood for some fun portraits. I had also just received a new toy in the mail: the Lensbaby! It's one of the cheapest lenses you can find, focusing is extraordinarily difficult, it's all plastic, and really really cool.

Fabulous light on our front porch: for months whenever I would answer the door around 5 or 6 I would think "I must shoot out here!" but I'm not sure the UPS delivery guy would have gone for it.

A boarded-up pizza shop around the corner; it didn't smell very good where Ang was standing. I'm glad she tolerated it!

Using sun flare with the Lensbaby creates interesting results.

Hey emily these portraits show some great 'seeing' what a good consistancy among the variety of angles and approaches. Get in touch with those feelings on all your shoots!
