But i heard the flutter

Finally, after showing I was such a hopeless procrastinator, I managed to post the painting that I finished a few months ago. This is gloomy, you are warned ! You can go check: Pas d'Ange

As an apologies, and since you've been patients, or for equity of genders, or maybe because, if we please to close our eyes long enough, they could come if we want to, i offer you an angel.

Lenses to tame

I'm very happy to manage compiling a little blog note here. Things have been so busy lately! I don't lack matter to showcase, only spare time, and sleep hours, are getting sparse. I'm not sure how I handle it. Some need drugs. I suppose that curiosity, eagerness to learn and pleasure to create are my gasoline.

I've been pondering for years to buy a decent camera; my boss brought that idea to life, in the name of a fantastic Canon EOS 5D mark II, which I've been trying to control for about a month now. Luckily I've had several opportunities to try it already, in some exciting projets (such as, video ones. but shhhh... )

Yesterday, although I had had a wholly sleepless week, plus done a shooting in the afternoon, I had my cousin visiting and we decided to arrange a photo session together. What better way to practice but with my lovely accomplice?
Gloss on lips, black backdrop and dear music, and we were all set up. Oh I must admit, I've had a freakily long moment of doubt while trying to arrange a correct lighting but only managing to increase the mess. I remembered those photo shoots I had done in the past, with devoted girlfriends posing, that I always sabotaged because of bad tools. The least you can do when someone is kind and patient enough to pose for you is to make his photos look good. This, is challenging for a newbie like me, and I adore that because I have will and it makes me improve.

We ended up with those few glamourous headshots. Even though I lack knowledge to criticize this work effectively ( and I'd love to get some ), still I'm am dazzled by her cuteness there. Isn't she? You can click on thumbnails to get bigger size (not the original size that is 25 Mpixels :) ) and also sneak a peek at her myspace because the dear lady is a great songwriter as well.
