This week I did an informal photo shoot for the salon where I get my hair foiled and cut. The owner, Jamie, is fantastic. I have difficult hair–-tons of it, very fine and dry, but she can whip it into shape. At least temporarily. And I have these highlights right now that are blonde, caramel, and red. I love them. LOVE.
If you live in Seattle and need a great stylist, check out the Jamie O'Neill Salon on Queen Anne.
Anyway, here are some of the fruits of my labor. I'm not thrilled with the outcome. I somehow could not get the lighting right.
This is the woman herself.
If you look closely at this one, you can see me in the corner with my camera. What a dork. I'll Photoshop that out before I burn the disk.
Too bad none of these ladies are very pretty. So sad. :0(
This shot of Jamie turned out a little blurrier than I would have liked. Especially since I like my photos TO NOT BE BLURRY AT ALL. But I love her expression here. This is a woman who is excited about what she does.
I've decided I need to take a photography class. I feel like I've gone as far as I can on my own and need some real instruction on lighting and exposure. Something to look forward to. Particularly since my writing is sitting in a pool of its own muck, festering and pissing me off.
