Sometimes, I tend to shoot so much on a girl that most images never make it to my website and wind up on the cutting room floor, (or since this isn't 1950's Hollywood, buried away on some hard drive). Like with Kaitlyn for instance. I loved this whole portion of the shoot using flash, but since it doesn't fit with the other images I have of her, and since I already feature her 3 times on my site, (4 counting the cover page), they never see the light of day! It seems a shame to go thru all that work for naught. So, from now on, a couple images that don't quite fit will have a place right here on my blog.

Yesterday was the shortest day of the year, (which technically doesn't make any sense, but is quicker than describing the winter solstice where, based on the earth's axis in relationship to the sun, accounts for the shortest period of daylight during the calender year). . . . . . see, I told ya. Shooting a daylight story on the shortest day creates it's own challenges, like waking up at 4:30 am to catch as much of this precious daylight as possible. I survived, but had to sacrifice my caffeine free pledge in the process. I made it 3 weeks! (also, did you know that the word caffeine violates the I before E except after C rule? I just found that out!) I will post actual images from the shoot in the coming week, but as for right now, here are a couple snapshots I took of the environment surrounding the location.

Here are a few polaroids of Kaitlyn from IMG. We had a blast shooting yesterday, kept it real raw and undone, no makeup, no styling. I've included one image that is proper, meaning the colors are decent with no real abnormalities. The next image has this amazing red stripe along the left hand side, where it came from is anybody's guess. In the last image the shutter stayed open too long and totally gave this ghostly effect. I think it was trying to compensate for the black background, but then that doesn't explain the previous image? So lets just say ghosts did it. . . . . . . or better yet vampires, they're more popular than ghosts these days and I might capitalize on some of that twilight mania! . . . . . . . . . Kaitlyn would be perfect for the fourth twilight movie don't ya think? I also shot her digitally which will show up on my site once I go through them all. These, however, were ready now so I thought I would post them on this rainy/sleety/snowy Saturday evening in NYC.
