Saturday Photo Shoot :) + Summers Bounty Finished

This AM went to play "model" for my husband who went to the Cincinnati Camera Club on Vine Street. They set up for portraits and I was the only BRAVE wife who went - so it was interesting to have 1/2 dozen male photogs telling you, "turn this way, chin up a bit, eyes this way, tilt your head," etc. etc. I have never had that much attention! ha-ha There is a LOT of information to learn about doing portrait photography and lots of things to "see" to get a good shot - and when you're working with this face, well...all I can say is I was brave enough to do it but I would never be happy having snaps of me all the time - I'll leave that to the gorgeous people like Angie and Brad :) It did give me more of a sense of what our models feel like in our figure drawing class (no, I was never without clothing!!!). It's not that easy.

And I finished Summer's Bounty without killing the whites!!! YAY!!!

Thanks so much, Michelle, Sandy, Deb, Susan and Teresa! I did it! ha-ha So, yes, Susan, I'm taking a bow (hey, it doesn't happen that frequently so I'm going to enjoy the feeling).
Deb, Jerry took all the photos except a few so I have them all - the whole gallery of sad things - aging is not a pretty sight. I can see beauty in older women all over but can't see it in my face, just see the wrinkles and sags and these stupid squinty Clint Eastwood eyes - do you feel lucky, punk, do ya? Where's my little black cigar and sombrero.......
