Thanks everyone - sorry I haven't been around as much. Life....

My Week 45:

This past week I had a chance to break out the studio lights and do a bit of portrait/fun work.

The young lady was new to modelling so we just tried a few different looks and had some fun experimenting.

1. A retro look:



2. Nice smiles



3. A bit of a high key look:



4. Different outfit, different look:



5. Levitation (not the cleanest composite, but just a quick look that will be revisited when I have a bit more time). I call this one "the pull of the moon"



Thanks in advance for looking. Have a great week everyone

Thanks Mitch. I don't do many composites but am starting to get intrigued by them. This was a quick one using Perfect Layers. I need to refine my process and get better lines. Probably need more practice with the software.

Week 46 & Week 47:

I have been out shooting over the past two weeks - just been too busy to post them. And to process them

So I started with a trip to a cold war bomb shelter. I have a number of photos from there, but as I said, I still have to process. I was looking for photos that I could use as backgrounds and textures - of course with lots of fiddling to get them the way that I will want when I use them as backgrounds.

The last set is from an outing into down town Ottawa.

Very nice series, Mario. Sorry I missed the bunker tour but maybe next time. Love the timing of your shot of the lady outside the Mercury Lounge. To balance on your heels like that for any length of time is something else.
