Brown to Blonde--Biker Chick to Bride

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE photographing Jennie Gabriel. She is like a chameleon. She is an exceptional actor and model.

With her slicked back hair and the harsh studio lights, it looks like she is ready for the stage (life is a cabaret old chum.................).

Fun and fluffy, workin' the sassy attitude.

Military [slash] inquisitive [slash] vulnerable [slash] sexy [slash] intelligent [slash] soft [slash] direct [slash] subtle............

In the program Lightroom, I added a vignette (by adjusting the amount of lens correction). I also adjusted the fill light to lighten her hair from auburn to red and then adjusted the contrast and vibrance to make the colors really pop.

I wouldn't want to meet this character in a dark alley. She looks like a gun wielding biker chick ready to rob a convenience store. Watch out 7-11! In Lightroom I applied the preset "cyanotype", I think the blue helps emphasize her icy stare. The image is slightly out of focus (not intentional--it was shot with a 50mm lens in AP, f/4.5 at 1/100 sec--no obvious reason it is blurry). Usually, I like the eyes to be sharp as a tack but here I don't mind. In fact, I think it works. Happy mistake.

For this bridal session we hiked to the top of the look-out near Los Alamos in the snow! Jennie is such a trooper when it comes to photo shoots.

I simply love the hoop earrings. They add a 70's vibe. Thanks Jennie for being such and amazing model!!

Corrina! I love this! Love the different looks! Have you taken a look at Seini's stuff?? She's really TAKEN OFF with the amount of work she's been doing. I'll email you with all the stuff that I've done.

Hey Corinna! What is up girl? It looks like we all have had alot going on with work. Jennie's pix look fabulous! Lovin' it! I don't know about takin off like Maele said above, but its been a crazy month and so much to do with so little time. We'll have to do a conference call or something. I've learned how to do some amazing things and am still trying to get the whole photoshop stuff done. Keep up the great work!
