This was a special shoot with one of my assistants, Shea, as my model. Shea says that she prefers to be behind the camera instead of in front of it, but she later said that she did enjoy herself. Also with me was my associate, Paul, who shoots video for James Studio, and George, who is a journalism student learning event photography. The day was forecast to be sunny with no chance of rain. Unfortunately, about the time we gathered to get the shoot started, it started raining. I was hoping to get some great sunset pictures, but the best I get was clouds. We were fortunate that it stopped raining, however.
The following photographs are composites. They were shot in two locations. Shea was photographed on the rocks in one location, and the willow tree shot was taken days later in another location. I have added a variety of effects; each has a certain look. I would love to hear from you about which picture and which effect you like best. The pictures are numbered at the bottom edge.
