September 3rd - 6 Hours

Monday - Day off of work which equals 6 hours of studio time

Soundtrack - Radiohead (Amnesiac, The Bends, Hail to the Theif, In Rainbows, Kid A -- yes, alphabetical) - I was feeling a need for consistency today.

Piece(s) worked on - Nik & Lindsay; both wonderful, beautiful souls who let me photograph them months ago.  I'm feeling great about both of them.  With Lindsay's, I'm taking some abstract pattern chances with the background, which have so far been successful.  With Nik's, I've struggled with proportions quite a bit (sometimes they just come on the first try, sometimes not) and since I don't believe in stencils, grids or projecting the image to save time, I really spent a lot of time.  Now, the eyes are in the right spot (whew!) and I just have all the details to put in.  I'm playing with depth of field with Nik's, as I did have use of his fancy camera for the reference photo and his face is actually out of focus.
