Kat from Tuscon

Wearing a few Bright and Shiny latex items at the local Hampton Inn last week. I’ve grown to hate shooting in hotel rooms, there is nothing sexy about a girl in a hotel, you can never get enough distance from the background, bed shots are trite, it’s usually a shitshow. Winter blows. 


Another mediocre shot, all these out of focus stalks sticking up in weird places screwing up the bokeh. Contrast and color of sky is weird too, probably should go back on a calm morning and try again. November weather is pretty marginal though, it’s just nasty out. 

Favorite Landscape

Finally made a landscape photo I like. It was windy but shooting with a higher end DSLR allowed me to shoot at a faster shutter speed and hold detail in the moving leaves ~ something I probably couldn’t accomplish with a larger film or digital camera.

Pocahontas Rally in Springfield

Went to North Conway to do the final measurements for my Peter Limmer and Sons hiking boots (custom for my weird feet). Made a few detours, it was a nice ride and good to check out a few old haunts. The Fall color wasn’t exceptional but I still enjoyed getting out. 

Came upon the prep for an Elizabeth Warren photo op, saw she used the rally photos in her materials. Had to be expensive. I was polite. 

Drove around Amherst and Northampton, joke towns set in a beautiful landscape. I’m always impressed by the beauty and abundance of that valley but it’s such a shame they located all those colleges there. 

Photography in the Dark

Met up with Larissa again, she’s so easy to photograph. 

None of these photos were planned, all of the ones I thought of ahead of time weren’t nearly as good. Being spontaneous worked well this time around. 

Blah last two are mediocre but I’m harsh, she’s a fine model. I wish I could find a local half as good… I don’t have a problem with inexperienced newbies but for goodness sake, if you’re coming out to be photographed then you really should allow yourself to be photographed and not hide behind some cheesy toothpaste smile and corny mall outfit /rant.
