Adventures in Lighting — Feb 2016
With Araina, Bruce, Judi and Louise
My partner, Bruce Walker, loves to try out various lighting styles. This can be fun for me, since I like to get dressed up and try different looks.
So, in February 2016, Bruce said he wanted to do some lighting shots, and we organized a photoshoot at our favorite local studio, Studio by House.
Our friends Araina Nespiak and Judi Willrich are both into photography and wanted to get in on this session. It also happens both ladies are makeup artists and both kindly volunteered to help with my makeup. I decided not to accept their offers since I am not comfortable with other people fiddling around my face …
Bruce had chosen to use lighting techniques from the 1920s and 1940s, leaning heavily toward the style of early Hollywood photog, George Hurrell.
Araina loves to do lots of post processing on her shots …I love the results.
Judi chose a bit of sepia processing on some of her shots, which gives a very 1930s — 1940s look.
I love the double image of Bruce and I.
Poor Tessa suffered from really bad separation anxiety and when ever possible, if we knew we would be gone for a long time, we would take her along to the studio. In the photos above, Tessa has rushed over from 5 feet away to make sure I am still okay.
