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?

August Desktop Images
It feels like that time of year when changes are about to happen, but not quite yet. It's like the calm before the storm. Summer vacation is ending and school is starting soon. We're going to begin seeing those vibrant color changes in nature. Our wardrobe is going to go through that teenage state of dealing with hot days and cool nights after dusk. But right now we can still bask in calmness, in serenity. So I've picked some images that make me think "serenity".Every month I feature new images for download for you to use as your desktop background.
