Catching up...Summer and Fall

Realized that I've been neglecting my blog.  Summer was busy with lots of travels and time spent trying to finish my recovery from shoulder surgery.  My family made some wonderful memories, taking our kid to Canada to visit places where "It" was filmed and running into filming of the sequel.  Seeing Niagara Falls.  Going to the beach.  It was full. 

Some photo catch up from this summer and fall.

Inspired by Nagel

I have always been a fan of Patrick Nagel, I love the simplicity of his designs and the beauty of the clean lines and colors.  My friend, who performs under the name Polaris Van Samus, and I did a fun, Patrick Nagel
inspired  photo shoot.

I have never shot on a green screen before, so there was a
bit of a learning curve, figuring out how to isolate things
and edit, but once I figured it out, it was a blast editing these
and trying creative background configurations.

Sindi Ray Bustier  is an all-around awesome person and amazing performer.  She runs our local burlesque troupe, The Harrisonburg Harlots and performs in and around the state.  The other day, she and I finally got a chance to do a photo shoot of her fire-eating routine.  We had a blast, running around the back yard and field at my parents' house in Augusta County.  Aside from me being shocked once by the electric was awesome.  It was so wonderful to be able to shoot pics again and do what I love without feeling restricted due to my surgery; physical therapy has been really hard work (and I still have a little ways to go), but it has all been well worth it.

I present the all-around awesome and totally bad-ass, Sindi Ray Bustier.
