I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Lauren a few weeks back on an outdoor photo shoot.  Lauren is a cheerleader at one of the local high schools; it’s a big part of her life and something that she’s obviously very passionate about – a fact she proved simply by going through with the shoot, despite temperatures in the low 40s and a cold, continuous wind that blew the entire time in defiance of the weather forecast.

We were able to shoot at the local rec fields and, despite not having the ideal football stadium background, we were still able to make the location look a bit dark and brooding, while punching up the glam effect of the lights.
This last one is a step away from the ordinary…  I’ve been working to improve my advanced Photoshop skills and, with the help of some tutorials, was able to take the step into adding a graphic arts element.  It’s just an experiment, but it was fun to try and it’s something extra I can add when the photo calls for it.  Lauren liked it, and that’s the most important part.
