I haven’t been taking photos very much lately because with the Fuji S1 dead and the Pentax Optio in the shop for a new LCD screen, I’m down to one camera. I’ve felt safer having it stay in the studio. Today was my first shoot with Stephanie. I saw her photo in the newspaper as she was starring in a local production of Nutcracker. I always like working with models who have dance experience, so I tracked her down and asked if she would be interested. We started her off in this blue velvet dress from the 1930s. She looks like she’s ready for the red carpet.
