Tree Huggers

December 17th, 2009

D20 9962 Tree Huggers I’ve been having fun and staying very busy down here in sunny Florida. It’s been a little more sunny than I would have liked for the days I was shooting, but I managed to deal with the challenging light pretty well.

I got to work with JoJo Suicide again. She is one of my all time favorite models and a great person to be around. That’s her on the lower branch in this photo. And on the upper branch is Rachel Haberhern, a “new” model who I just met and worked with for the first time on this trip. Rachel is a great model, so it was wonderful to have both her and JoJo to work with. I also worked with another new Florida model this trip, but more about her later when I post one of her photos.

This is the last photo I took on my last day of shooting. We had been out in the swamps and forests all day looking for good locations and had been having a good bit of success, despite the bright sunlight that was pushing the limits of the dynamic range of my camera. We had been shooting with a number of great trees, but were still looking for the “perfect” tree when Rachel spotted this one just a little way from the trail we were on. It was far enough away that JoJo and I didn’t see it…maybe Rachel spotted it because she is six feet tall. Or maybe she was just paying more attention. Anyway, I’m very glad she found this tree because it gave us the shot we had been looking for all day. Thanks Rachel.

Tomorrow morning I load up the truck and head for home. I hear it’s cold up there in Ohio. Not looking forward to getting back to winter. I’ve been wearing shorts and sandals. Guess I’ll need to adjust the wardrobe for the return trip.

    Magnificent shot Dave! I wish I didn't have to leave that day or there could have been a trio in that tree 🙂
