***disclaimer*** I realize that I start off ALL of the Ten Eyck Tuesday posts with how much fun we had..... but FOR REAL I do have fun, each and every time like it's my JOB! Wait. What? OK, it IS my job!! AND I LOVE MY FREAKING JOB!!!!!!
So stop hating on my fun recap and read ON:
The second December Ten Eyck Tuesday installment was so much fun- this group was the A Number One CHATTIEST most caffeine addicted group I have ever had! They make Mike's venti black eye with energy look like a decaf coffee! MELISSA!! OK, so Val and Simone were not the culprits so I will let you all deduce who the other two were... ;)
Our models for the day? My good buddy & the Mrs. New Good Buddy MR. AND MRS. ERIC FOLEY! Holy Hotness Batman! These two were smoking it UP, and thank god because it was SO freaking cold out! I forgot to bring my hat and gloves so I was super chilly...! But they kept us all warm with all of the talking and laughing we did...
So we started off in Blue Back Square- but not the pretty, easy to shoot part that you may assume I took them! We started in a parking garage- which to me, is fun and a place I would actually choose to shoot. It was fun seeing how everyone got what I saw after explaining how light is really everywhere, and texture, and cool nooks to shoot just ABOUND if you train your eye to look for them all... so we started in these empty spaces...
The best part was showing how radically you can change the feel of an image just by how you decide to expose your image... This is the same spot, but they just sat down.
Here is Simone in action working on changing up her perspective
Same spot again, I just stood up
The garage had these super crazy LED lights in them, so it was fun playing with my white balance to create an immediate mood. Well and then there is Mr. Foley being all moody himself! He really is fun to shoot!!
Miss Aurora Onorato getting in nice and close
Miss Melissa Wilson worked it
So we were headed to Starbucks to warm up, right? Well.... we didn't get too far... because, well, doesn't this little corner look AWESOME to shoot in? So we made a pit stop
Got some snuggly close ups- and man Erin's eyes? Are sooooooo pretty! She is just so photogenic and beautiful and easy to work with
Miss Valeen Thivierge, of The Sweetest Days Photography, working her D3, baby!!!!! We were instant friends, of course.
While shooting Val shooting the Foley's I had to shoot the Foley's, follow?
Then I had to go back in there and shoot... come ON
Poor Simone had the one eyed WILLY going on but it was hilarious. And cold. Did I mention that it was cold?
Simone, pulling a Mike Romano Blue Light Special. Loved the shoes of course
After warming up at Starbucks we went to a beautiful, awesome PARKING LOT! But wherever you are? Is where you are. And so? We work it OUT!!!
Here Eric Foley is working it out
Here I am pretending we are in Alaska or something. For no reason. But doesn't it feel like it? Did I mention that it was cold out?
OK, here are the cast of characters.... drum roll please....
From the Western part of the lovely state of Connecticut, Miss Aurora Onorato!
Again representing our Nutmeg State to points west is Miss Melissa Wilson!!
One of my new favorite people (she got Mike GOOD at our art opening last week and I am forever indebted to her) Miss Valeen Thivierge of The Sweetest Days, bringing it back east to Jewett CITY!!
And last but not least, coming up from the shoreline way... the wise-cracking stylings of Miss Simone Gutkin!
A must. Shoes, shoes as far as the eye could see.... not as bad as my office... and no I am not moving them for tonight :P
Awwww... check us out!!
I had so much fun shooting and learning with you all- don't forget what you challenged yourselves to do when you left and KEEP SHOOTING!!
