I had an opportunity of shooting portraits for my friends on last weekend's dinner gathering in one of my friends' family room. I used her burgundy window curtains as the background, exisiting ceiling lights and a small desk lamp as spot light. All my friends are such great models and we all had lots of fun. After I converted the images to blackandwhite/sepia, I posted them onto facebook. They love them and their friends love them. I made a small request that if they are happy with the photos, they are welcomed to own them as long as they make donations to charity organiztions such as Red Cross to help with Haiti Earthquake Relief. And one of them even found out that some companies match your donations such as William Sonoma matches the fund you make to Red Cross so your donation will be doubled.
This morning while I was uploading these "diva" shots to my Flickr page, I felt a sense of happiness that I can make use of my photography skill and passion for something meaningful ... Click to see all the Divas glamour shots.
