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.
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.
