365 Project: Post #2 -My 1st Communion Shoot-Backlighting

This was my first Communion Shoot.  I was thrilled to do it. I knew we would get beautiful shots.  This is one of my top three favorites.  We used a backlighting technique.  The whole indoor shoot was all natural light.  We pulled a curtain in front of a window and the light lit her veil from behind!  Here is a link to some of my other favorite Olivia Photos. 2018RacunasOlivia_32

Red White Steel Mill Tower at Dusk-Weirton West Virginia

So today I had a business meeting at a restaurant called DeeJay’s in my hometown in Weirton, WV, which was cool.  I had been gone for so long but now am back.  Everytime I drive through the main street towards my childhood home, I am preoccupied with photographing different parts of what once was a vibrant steel mill town.  I stopped to take this shot one evening at dusk.  my kids in the back seat.  The barbed wire is out of focus and the tower is in focus and I am not so crazy about the effect of that; but nevertheless, I still like the shot.
