First, a painting:
"Baby Bok Choy"
8 x 10 inches, oil on canvas
Second, a picture of me painting it:
And third, an explanation of why I suddenly have such GORGEOUSLY made photos on my blog instead of my usual
crappy iphone pictures:
A while back, I got inspired by a collaboration I saw online between a running blogger and a photo blogger (don't ask, my blog-reading interests range far and wide), and so I hopped on Craig's List and put out a feeler.
--- Perhaps I should say here that Craig's List found me my house, my husband his job, and is basically the reason for everything in the universe. ---
I was pleasantly shocked to get a response almost immediately from a team of serious professionals whose work I've seen all over town - and they were excited about working with *me*!
Rob and Tracy Sydor of Digital Latte Photography really are artists. I enjoyed getting to see their massive warehouse studio at our first meeting, and then it was time for them to come to my studio.
The photo shoot was fun, if a little weird for someone who is usually the observer, not the observed. They made me feel totally comfortable, and I loved seeing the lights and all the equipment they brought.
Here are a couple of my favorites:
Rob and Tracy also do this really cool boutique package for their clients - they dress you up, do your makeup and photograph you at the location of your choice. Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
