Last week, my friend Nicole (from Blue Ruby Photography) and I got together and had an impromptu photo day. Our photo days are great because we get to practice new techniques and talk shop about the photography business. We talk about our goals, our equipment wish list (see next paragraph), our wonderful pets and more. This particular day, I spent the morning photographing her Boxer, Ruby. We started the morning at the Waxhaw skate park - a cool little park right in the heart of downtown Waxhaw. The ramps, ledges and bumps (can't you tell I'm not a skater) made for a cool background. I definitely want to go back here when I get my 24mm f/1.4! Ruby was a trooper and modeled like a pro.
After the skate park, we wondered around Waxhaw looking for some good lighting opportunities. It was a little later in the morning than I like to shoot but I think we made it work.I loved these red doors in front of an old fire department...Back at home, Ruby was ready for a nap. Thanks, Ruby and Nicole, for a fun photo day!
