Maddie was interning at an office near mine and reached out to shoot with me last year. Over the time she was in Seattle we shot several times and she was a good sport in letting me test a couple of cameras and vintage lenses I had repaired. Some these are on film and some on digital. Now that she is gone to Montana, I am back to testing my experiments on random people in Pioneer square.
This wasn't the plan. Emily and I have some mutual friends and we connected about running around to take some fun photos. We met up and wandered around Georgetown. Shooting in front of color warehouse walls. Greens, Reds and Blues with some Yellow thrown in for fun.
I am really tired today, a deep tired that you should not be after a holiday weekend. I was looking at my Fitbit sleep tracker and I have only been averaging 4.5 hours of sleep. Even when I go to bed early I can't sleep. I am not a worrier, but I have a lot going on and so I make and remake my to-do list. That said, life is good and being busy has been a positive for my creativity.
I have had a run of luck lately working with a number of redheads, which given my own fair skin makes me super happy. The latest was a dancer and college student from the Cornish College of the Arts whom I was thrilled to work with. Don't be fooled by the baby face, she is worldly and very entertaining to be around. If you are a photographer in New Zealand, you should find her on Instagram and shoot with her she will be there studying abroad. Check out the samples:
Diana Jean O. Is one of my favorite art models. This most recent shoot with her in her garden all in black and white shot with the Leica Monochrome (type 246) in 50mm/1.4.
