    Took my dogs into the groomer's today, the same place where I "discovered" Jesse, (my now former favorite practice model :evil:
    Low and behold, there's a new girl working there now.
    This is a simple outdoor natural light test shot of Kirsten, 19, taken with my D2X and my 85 1.4. I'm trying to get her into the studio for some practice shots. I think she has excellent potential being relaxed in front of the camera, although she has never been before. Showed her some of my previous work in print, and I think she's fairly impressed with it. Gave her my card, and that was that. We'll see!
    Comments (both ways) always appreciated.

    Steve I think I'm going to have to rent a dog next
    month when I swing through Fort Wayne and give
    this place a visit.

    Thanx Guys, and Todd,

    if you get a few free minutes while passing through town, I'd love to meet you somewhere for a cup of coffee, or a glass/pint of your favorite beverage!

    Steve that would be great. Right now it looks like I will be in the Three Rivers area the 3-4 week of June. The wife said I can't go to the dog groomers though :( :( :(

    I just love her expression, coy and naughty all at once. What's your secret mate? ':?'

    My secret?

    I carry a decent portfolio with me, and giving good direction... Doesn't hurt to know some good basic PS too. I worked on this pic at least 2 hrs! She had a lot of hairs streaming across her face.
