Two of my very good out-of-state friends came to visit me this past weekend. Of course I took the opportunity to practice portrait photography, and of course I will now bombard you with pictures. This is Brenda (who's much more consistent with her blogging than I am!) from Tennessee. Later I'll post some photos of Dania and general stuff from the weekend. It'll take some time to catch up.
This photo was taken during the grand total of 2 minutes of sunshine we experienced Sunday and Monday.
Sometimes I just can't decide between two similar photos, so I post them both. Right next to each other. It's my blog, so I can do that sort of thing.
Here I did it again.
Brenda loooooooves reading, so I thought I'd try using a book as a prop for some photos.
This is probably my favorite of the bunch! Brenda with one of her favorite books.
Brenda - thank you so much for coming and letting me try various poses and backdrops for your pictures. :)
Photography note: I just got a new lens (Sigma 30mm f/1.4) that I used for all of these photos. I'm pretty happy with it so far! There are much fancier lenses out there, but this is the nicest one I've had and it's amazing what a difference it makes in the color and sharpness.
