I always felt comfortable taking photos of dogs (and other animals) and I still do. That is the focus of my business. But what I haven't felt easy at is taking photos of people. I'm excited about the images I see other photographers shoot. So ... to get used to shooting people and directing them, I joined a model / photography group to practice. The first event I went to a was a "vampire" shoot. It was enjoyable and I learned a lot by watching how the other photographers spoke to the models.
This gal was sweet. Her mother told me she was just 15 and starting her modeling career. I asked her to twirl, but to stare at me when she turned around. I like the swinging cape.
This guy was over-the-top. He was great and seemed to enjoy showing his fangs off. He also did a good job in "acting" like a vampire.

I am very excited that several of my images, including this "Light House" will be showcased at Twin Oaks Gallery's Black and White ... a Photo Exhibit.
The opening will be held this Friday, Feb. 12 from 6-8:00 pm. This will be a great event. I've already heard from several people who are planning to attend my opening.
I will be posting all the photos after the opening is held. This a great time to support local North County Artists. You can purchase direct from me or from the gallery.
We're looking for a great opening ... Thanks to everyone who has called and emailed me.
