Entries in twirl (2)



I enjoy experimenting when shooting.  Often times, you get awful, unusable results, but it's very satisfying when your experiments yield something that makes the mind wonder and brings a smile to your face.  (Click the picture to view it larger.)

What you see here is an image of my daughter from our recent photo session.  You can see the first image here.  We took a different approach in shooting this one.  Instead of having her progress directly from right to left ending with a rear curtain sync flash pop, we had her twirl around and I manually popped the flash at a moment of my choosing.  I then let the exposure continue a bit to fill in the frame some more.  

What are your thoughts?  Is this kind of photography too "out there" for your tastes?  Which image do you prefer?  Why?



Here are images from another model photo shoot we did just for fun.  My friend Steve Wampler and I took turns shooting and assisting during this session.  This time we worked with Hallie.  Hallie studied Theater at the University of Texas at Austin and is now off to LA to kick off her career.

For the following shot, we made ourselves at home on a UPS truck that was making deliveries.  The driver didn't seem to mind as long as we didn't slow him down.
