|Life Through the Lens||
And the winner goes to........Katelyn dances! A young friend was helping me out with a project I was working on for our annual women's retreat. I shot her senior pictures back in August and really liked a shot in silhouette of her posing in a ballet stance. She did not have a leotard on at the time and we were 45 minutes from home in Forest Park - St. Louis, so when she agreed to help me with this project I wanted to shoot her in a leotard and tutu. I was not happy with the shots, as the stage in Frontier Park does not sit atop a large hill with nothing but blue sky behind, but when I saw how the sunset illuminated her frame and the shadows it created well........A friend made the comment that the power lines added to the image with the metaphorical power in the body of a dancer. So here's to 2013, the year I began to see the difference in my photography. May 2014 be even more successful!
