Update September 19th 2013..... A DD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow! Could not have come at a better time. Thanks so much for the support, encouragement and exposure this will bring . I know it's not a prize, but I'm honoured and humbled. It's taken over 8 years, but good things come to those who wait right?
Hey all, it's been quite a while since I posted anything. We've had a bit of a tough time since winter and have been focusing on our two little ones and our family business so haven't had much time to post-process older shoots, do any new shoots etc.
The summer here in Estonia was also surprisingly good (up until a few days ago) unfortunately for our art and photography business that also meant focusing on the kids instead of shooting.
A couple of days ago though I grabbed the 'bull by the horns' so to speak and used an opportunity while we were all sitting in our sauna to finally get a long-time friend to come pose for us - admittedly there was a little pressure as she's moving to Australia next week. (for any Aussie photographers out there who see her shots and would like her to pose for you, just drop me a note)
Kätlin's new page is here:
It was a great first shoot and my wife (she'll be posting some on her profile as well soon) and I as well as Käts had a lot of fun shooting - we had a lot more ideas and it's a pity it'll be a while until we can shoot her again. Luckily we got a decent number of good shots some fun and some more artistic. We'll be posting them over the next little while, when we get the chance to post-process
Hope you enjoy the shots as much as we did shooting them.
Here are the first two from my portions of the shoot.
A bit about me:
I've been a Deviant for over 8 years (under another moniker). Although I am still keeping the old profile out of historical and sentimental reasons, I won't be linking back there - as it is, every week I have about 40 new favs in my old gallery as well as a decent flow of new watchers, I am trying to migrate these appreciators of my work over here.
This new profile marks a new era in terms of my photography and direction and I think so far the response to my work has been fantastic. I feel I've progressed quite a bit since the early days and I've been shooting for a little over 20 years. I'm also getting a lot better with my post-processing work, always learning though and I still have a ways to go in certain aspects. There are of course shots that I'm still very proud of from the old days, anything that still meets my current requirements as being good enough will be moved here.
The response to this new profile, thanks in part to the way groups work nowadays, has been overwhelming.
