Photography Class--Angels and Angles

My friend Kara stopped by one day to evaluate a project of mine (don't you love friends who share your project disease?) and she offhandedly commented that the light from my north windows was absolutely perfect light for shooting in the mornings. I had no idea what she was talking about at the time, but after my lighting lesson, I could see what she saw--beautiful clear light streams through these windows. 

I set up a little photo shoot right by these windows and this is the subject I chose:
She sits much more still than any of my other kids and she doesn't complain when I take thirty minutes to find the perfect shot.

Here are a few of my favorites from that morning.
 I went up and down and all around, using every angle in that beautiful morning light.

 This last one was my favorite . . .
. . . until my other angel came over to investigate.

I can't wait to try this little studio with a real person--if I can get them to sit still, that is.


  1. Nice job! I particularly like the two at the end with both angels.

  2. love love the light on the angel (both of them)

    as for my house..i don't have the perfect changes and i am constantly setting up places by the minute...hubs thinks i'm crazy, and I am,

    haha i stepped away from the computer this morn to deal with kids and realized someone (points to hubs) added a sentence to my comment!

  3. I love them all, but especially that last one!


  4. Okay seriously, the photography class was a good investment. I can see such a difference - It makes the post processing 10 times easier doesn't it!! I can't wait to see more!
