Thanks Ida!

I've been told I can thank Ida for all the rain the past couple of days... and, while I didn't enjoy getting soaked going to my car of having to clean water spots off my lenses today... I did enjoy shooting at the beach with the storm clouds as a backdrop!

There is something about shooting in the rain, I likely shouldn't like it since it's A. not good for my equipment and B. likely voids my insurance in some way shape or form but I really do enjoy the interesting photos you get with dark skys, raindrops, and rain soaked subjects :)

Last week, at Faythe's Shoot Out I was pretty excited to use my new toys for the shoot... and I'm super happy with the result! My friend Heather, had recently gotten herself a pocketwizard and flash to start learning and had some trouble with it... and well I think all of us did when we first started using them. Anyway, she asked me if I'd help her. I of course said yes she's the sister to one of my brides and it was one of the craziest wedding's I've been involved with to date!!! Anywho, Heather has become a good friend since the wedding and I love spending time with her, so after roping her into being my lighting assistant we had lunch and met up with her friend Hidi for a quick session/lesson. Now, I was mainly the "teach" as Heather says in this scenario but I did manage to pop off a few super cool shots before the rain ruined our fun!

And, is it just me or does Hidi seriously look like Nellie Furtado???

The one with the rain drops is so awesome! I love it. They are all great though. One day I'll adventure into off camera flashes and all that good stuff!

Everyone loves the one in the rain... it was the last photo I could do before I felt uncomfortable having my equipment out in the rain... I soooo need waterproofing stuff!!! LOL

Thank you Erica for the kind words!
