Hiking Wincopin Trail - Howard County, MD

Oh my gosh! I think spring might finally be coming to Maryland!

Okay, so temperatures dropped again on Sunday, but on Saturday, I decided to take a hike along a new trail in Howard County. Photos were taken with my One Plus 2 phone.

Family Photography ~ Pasadena, MD

This family was originally going to do a red-and-green, Christmas-themed portrait photo, but when I recommended something more appropriate year-round, they changed it up and decided wear varying shades of blue.

Apologies to those of you who have been trying to post comments on my blog... CAPTCHA wasn't working, and it was causing errors when people try to send me a comment. Oh no!

That problem had now been fixed, and you should be able to comment again normally.

Family Photography ~ Glen Burnie, MD

This family wanted some family photos done. Specifically, they wanted to arrange to have the pictures taken on Sunday after Church. I had my studio set up prior to their arrival, so the session went smoothly and the results were great!

Dance Audition Photography, Part 2 ~ Linthicum Heights, MD

You may remember Catie from an earlier blog post. At the time, she was auditioning to get into the Joffrey Academy of Dance.

Well, she seems to have done quite well, because she approached me again for more dance photos! She's now preparing for a dance competition at the Joffrey Academy!

While the last photo session was in my studio, this series of photographs was taken on-location in her dance rehearsal space. This presented some new challenges, since I didn't have the same amount of control over the environment as I would in my studio.

Some things, like the new lighting setup, could be taken care of as part of my location setup so that the pictures looked good "in camera". Hovering over these images shows you the retouching that was done to handle other challenges. I removed the speakers, cleaned up the floorspace, and evened out the color on the wall behind Catie. These changes reduced the number of distractions in the images, so the school will be able to focus on what's really important: Catie and her dance form.

She looks great to me, and I wish her the best of luck as she continues her dance journey!
