Hi All! Sorry that I haven't been around much lately. I have been so busy and it looks like it's not going to let up anytime soon...I have scheduled eight photoshoots for next month. The local models have found me and there's no stopping them now!

Last weekend I attended a photography workshop that was taught by Manny Librodo. I have followed his work for many years, so I was truly honored to learn some of his portrait techniques. This is one of the many photos that I took during the workshop.

For those of you who are trying to sort out the background, the model is surrounded in sheer leopard print fabric that has some metallic threading in it. The wind was blowing the fabric. The objects in the background are trees.

A fantastic image Beckas. Its about time you got an EC, to me you have many images worthy of awards.
Was someone holding the scarf, or was it fixed to something?

Yes, Angi, Manny himself was holding the scarf. When he saw the image that I took, he said to me, "you should give proper credit to the person who was holding the scarf". Smile
