Learning People Skills

This evening friends dropped by for a dinner of Taco Salad and cookies. After our meal, the men visited around the table and the women had fun dressing up the teen-age girls in costumes for a photo session. Reminiscent of childhood dress-up days, it was so much fun! Photographing people is different than the usual still-life photography I enjoy. Lighting is especially challenging, but rewarding when it turns out just right. I have much to learn, but enjoyed the process so much! I'm eager to learn more and to practice until I get it right. This evening, my bedroom was heaped with gowns, scarves, shoes, and gems as the girls changed outfits many times. Such fun!


  1. Sounds like a lot of fun. Is the photo you posted one of the photos you took?

  2. This picture turned out beautifully, oh I'd love to learn this better as well. How absolutley fun to dress up and have a photo session. I bet you had fun.

  3. What fun! A grown-up dressup party. Your photo is wonderful. Are you hoping to do something special with your photography?

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and for leaving your sweet comments. The magazine I was reading under the patio umbrella lights is the current issue of Victoria. Come on over - I'll let you sit out there and read it.

  4. Great photo! I'd love for you to check out some of ours on our photography blog. :-)

  5. Your photo was great! Oh how I wish I could do so well. I loved just the touch of color on her hem. Are you planning to do something with your photography or is this just for fun. Either way it is very lovely.

  6. Stunning photo. My friends and I did something similar as my friend is a part-time learning photographer and wanted to do some fun shots. We loved it!
