In my last entry, I described how I did a quick portrait of Kat’s hands without a lot of gear; just using natural light and available tools. My next subject was Marion.
Marion is the leader of a belly-dance troupe that performs in several living history events across northern California. I loved the texture of her hands coupled with the accessories of her outfit.
One more, and a portrait of the artist after the jump.
After working through a set of portraits concentrating on her hands, I turned her away from the sun and set her with a less-complicated background as best I could. Yes, that should read: “I didn’t want a tree growing out of her head.” (*Grin*)
Thank you, Marion. You were a joy to photograph.
