Aliciya Angel

I shot with my good friend Aliciya Angel (myspace / facebook ) on Friday. She's a very talented musician and I wanted to portray her in the spot light so i decided on a large front light and a snoot behind her and shoot with an angle that would give a lens flare. She's an up and coming star and I know she'll go far and shine brightly for some time and I hope that my photography plays on that concept.

She's been played on the radio and has played many live shows and I know she's already got a following locally. I recommend checking her out, you might just like what you hear.

Becky B. photo shoot.

I shot with the wonderful Becky again today. We went out to a field near sacramento and did some nudes as the sun set in the distance. I love shooting outdoors when the light is warm and low in the sky. I used a flash for fill but it was mainly the sun doing the lighting.

Post work was minimal, just some clean up and some curves. I toyed with the notion of black and white but I just couldn't stand to loose that beautiful warm sun light. in the end I'm glad I left it as is.
