Headshots!

After Bella's birthday bash, I took advantage of the soft evening light and took headshots for my brother-in-law, Lucian, and his girl, Stephanie. They are both attending Wright State University for acting and needed updated headshots. It was very refreshing to get out there and use my camera and my skill for someone other than my kids. And Stephanie was the first person I ever photographed whom I didn't really know. So I thought I would share with you some of my favorite shots. I'm still playing around with some, using my software to sharpen them up. I may come back later with some in black and white and other such alterations. For now, I just wanted to share with you my first experience taking headshots! Hopefully not my last. It was fun learning beforehand what is required for headshots, and playing around with angles, background and lighting. Of course, as always, having good subjects makes a huge difference! Thank you, Lucian and Stephanie, for letting me take your photos. You made my "job" easy!

These are fabulous! I was a theatre major. A good headshot is worth so much!

And I've added you to the babywearing bloggers blogroll, too!

Thanks, Steph! I'm glad to hear from a theater major that they look good. And thank you for adding me to the blogroll. What a resource!

Yep, Megan, the brick is my 1899-built basement! Who'd have thunk it. And the white door is that terrible old basement door, too. Great backgrounds, though!
