cynthia, originally uploaded by angela.m..

cynthia has been a friend since college and she was the maid of honor in my wedding. i was recently visiting her in bloomington-normal, il and we thought we'd play around and take some shots. this is one of my faves. she's holding a silver reflector and flash is bounced off the ceiling. i underexposed slightly to blow out the highlights to make it look more contrasty with her dark hair. thanks for being my model cyn!

art & business

okla, originally uploaded by angela.m..

i've been super busy. teaching is taking a ton of time since i am teaching 4 courses between depaul and saic--whoo.. it's a lot. also working on my art-some new video pieces while processing and thinking about my photos from okla. in my (not so) free time, i've been taking pics of people for cheap to build a portrait business.

i'm working on a new blog so i can post much larger images which i'm really excited about. the photos look so different large than they do tiny on the blogspot space. by the summer, i hope to have the business website built. i'm trying to figure out if i should share my art stuff on the new photo blog. i am thinking about expanding the blog on my art site instead along with the much needed updates. i just don't know about maintaining the two spaces.. still thinking about how to do that. thoughts? preferences?

here is a shot taken at an okla rodeo. its one of my faves. til my next post..

i've had white bed for years. only white sheets and a white comforter. it just feels cleaner and more peaceful to me. recently we painted our walls grey in the bedroom since it was way too much white. its perfect now. i wish i could lay in bed all day :)
