A brand New Carl Zeiss 24-70 f2.8 had just been added to the lineup...
See sample results in Kristin's Portrait Gallery - (our first shoot with this lens).
Just thrilled and mortified with the expense of such an item is a strange combination - very Yin Yang, but we were looking forward to it nonetheless. Lens in hand and ready.
Then out of the blue came Kristin! She came over after briefly participating and bailing out on a big group shoot over at the local Bakersfield park - just 5 minutes away from us. How perfect!
We exchanged a few calls and accelerated the timing a bit which was fine by me as it was a day of mostly finishing work for me and I needed to take a rest from it regardless. She arrived with a full bag of model goodies, wardrobe and accessories - COOL, and very pro, plus, a model that had her makeup on and ready to go - perfectly! (Advice to the modeling interested - hire a makeup artist or learn how to do it for yourself - and makeup for camera is not what you wear to the grocery store!!!) We got right into it quickly and knocked out some great images in no time flat! She has an amazing and inspiring back story which I will not go into here, but suffice to say, I was thrilled to do this shoot and create the results for her we did! Mega Kudos. A job well done!
Great model - yes I would shoot with her again, no question.
