Great Moments in Portraiture

Uncategorized

The internets have some great stuff.

Today I found a link to Great Olan Mills photos. Freaking hilarious. Had I been drinking milk, it would have come out of my nose.

I admit that I too had the Olan Mills experience when I was younger. Thankfully, I don’t own any of the pictures from it but I can tell you that it wasn’t pretty. Who knew that bangs don’t work on the curly-haired? My step-brother had it worse though, he was in high school at the time of the pictures and, well, he had curly hair too. Big curly hair.

I actually had a great client last summer who came to me for family and graduation portraits. They were a really really fun group and asked for the Olan Mills shot. Unfortunaltely I didn’t have the studio lights and a really cheesy backdrop, but I went for the classic everyone-looks-off-into-the-distance-at-nothing shot anyway (complete with horrible vignette and teal-ish glow).

Nice, huh?

Class of 2009! Senior Ambassadors Wanted
It's that time again... Thousands of high school juniors in the San Francisco Bay Area are beginning to dig into what's ahead in the next year. The most stressful of all of them, junior year deals with the PSAT, the SAT, the beginning of AP tests, scouting out colleges, thinking about college applications, junior proms, working on your "high school portfolio", researching scholarships and grants, driving, and that just scratches the surface. Fall semester started this whole mess and now there's the great spring semester push to keep grades especially high for the transcript.Spring semester is also a busy time for me, too.
