Thank you, thank you, thank you Tysha and Tk for coming out yesterday. It means so much to me that you were willing to brave the heat of the day so that I could practice shooting.
This first shot is my favorite, and it was purely accidental. I had at first planned to shoot from their right on the other side of the tree, but the wind kept blowing Tysha's hair into her face. I went to the opposite side, but a bench and cars spoiled the background. So I stood up high and shot down, ending up with this angle. The beautiful lighting on Tysha's and Tk's faces are courtesy Hiroma and Celia who were holding a reflector for me. Thank you assistants!!
