What I do for fun

What I do for fun is what I do for work. I am indeed a very fortunate creative girl. What I do for work is what I believe in. Today a friend complimented me on a video I made for church and I responded, “Thank you, I put some heart in to that one.” And that’s what I do with all my work, I put my heart in to it. One day when I leave this earth, my videos will live past me and their message of hope, inspiration, purity and creativity will live on.

Two Shots

This weekend I rented a 35mm L series lens for my Canon 7D. I had planned  a few family portraits, but due to heavy rain I had to cancel. I took my model, David, outside to see what this lens could do. I took a few but got one shot that I really liked. One main reason were the colors of the shot. Not only was David looking at me intensely but the gloomy sky mixed with this red coat just made the most interesting combination. While looking at it in photoshop, I wanted to see what else I could do with it. I played with curves, levels and grain. Now, I don’t know which one I like most. What do you think?

The Original. You gotta appreciate the colors..
