My Passion

Week 3- My Passion



Of course my main passion is definitely my family, but if I had to choose what I am really passionate about (not including them), it would definitely be "the arts". I love music, musical theatre, art, dance....


This is obviously two images that I took tonight- one of me (with tripod and timer on my camera) and then second image of my piano. The piano I lit with a flashlight. The self portrait I used my SB900-camera right and up high with "ghetto snoot". SB700 on the floor, in front of me - both triggered with my camera. Converted to B&W in Silver Effex Pro, Converted to composite in CS5. My dear mother made the "tutu" for me.


Have a great week everyone!!t

    your passion shows loud and clear in this wonderful image. what is it about the expression of passion, of the innermost thoughts and feelings that reveals such beauty and emotion? Who knows for sure but I will not ask for fear that the knowing will make it less mysterious and wonderful.
