Earlier in our hour of practice, someone set up a light directly behind one of the blonde models, creating a beautiful light surrounding the hair. There's also, of course, a light in front of the model, to the left of the photographer, to fill in the face. All evening I kept waiting for Lee to be available for this light setup, because I wanted to see how it would look with a darker complexioned, darker haired model. I wasn't disappointed! Lee has red highlights dyed into her hair, and the backlight captured these beautifully. I also set up a fan in front of the model, helpfully held by Kathy, the studio owner, to add some motion to the hair. Throw in the beautiful blue feather earring, the great expression, the over-the-shoulder pose, and just a hint of tattoo on the left arm, and this is a favorite photo.

Here's another image of just Daniel. I like the framing better on the photo above, and the fact that it includes both sons, but this one has the advantage of showing the beanbag, so there's a little more context to the image. I did capture a few with the beanbags in the air, but all of them obscure the face of the person throwing the bag, unfortunately.

Here's another version of the same photo: www.flickr.com/photos/bacherfamily/6176667431/ I like the framing on this one better. What do you think?

And now, two of Daniel's... first, his view of a bright orange traffic cone on the roof of the Sears department store:
And next, a photo of the petunias in front of Kirk's Pharmacy:
This is my third image. I found the juxtaposition of the "Fit Club" sign above the pedestrian sign to be amusing:
And finally, Daniel's last photo, taken from the new park in downtown Eatonville, looking out toward Mount Rainier in the east:

Photos like this are tough, because it's so easy to burn out the whites on the flower petals, but in this case I underexposed intentionally and it came out well. I also used a very narrow depth of field, creating nice bokeh in the background.
Such promise the spring had, yet summer took so long to finally arrive, and was here so briefly!

Here's another version of the same image that I like almost as well -- what do you think?

I'd love to revisit this challenge someday, with a full hour to experiment with fill flashes and reflectors, and figure out how to do it without standing on my head...
