Miss Emi – at night with light

Take 2!

Last week Emily (Emi) and I explored the great outdoors. We had a great time capturing well over 100 seriously amazing portraits.

However we knew – we were going to have to go downtown. Not “downtown” where the lights are bright – but downtown where it’s dark, and moody and industrial.

We had one goal in mind – to get one perfect shot – painting with light. It only took us about 30 minutes to get all the elements together.

First was the hard part, waiting for the darkness. So, we played around a bit; on the parking structure, and near some abandoned (?) metal buildings, dancing around with glow sticks to kill some time.

Second was me, I had to paint with light behind her, quickly, in cursive and backwards. Um! Not easy. I am the worst cursive writer.

Third was mom, her job was to aim the flash (to make Emi look great) in the right direction, and to pop the flash at the exact right time.

Fourth was Emi, she had to sit relatively still, and look gorgeous. {She’s pretty good at that .. so she had the easiest job ;)} We are a great team, I think it only took us about 8 shots to get all the elements together …

and hey, why not add show you a few more 😉
