Sunroom

Portraits

I did a fashion photo shoot this morning for one of my friends, Kristine, and I wanted to share a few pics with you guys.

Her and her husband live in this really neat house down in Highland Park with badass vintage wallpaper, amazing interior architecture, and the cutest little sun room, where we staged the shoot. The purpose of the shoot was to capture the ensemble she made, but as you all know, I’m always more attracted in capturing people’s faces when I have the opportunity. So after the clothing part was done, I put my portrait lens back on and took a few shots of the model’s face.

The first couple shots are taken with my 18-105mm lens, and the last one is my 50mm portrait lens.

I’m always grateful for opportunities like this to get me out of my comfort zone and play with light and different people. I think these photos came out well, although I’m still learning.

P.S. Don’t forget, you can now follow me (professionally!) on Instagram, @vivianapodinaphotography

First Snow

Miscellaneous

You know you’re in Michigan when one day you have sunny, relatively “warm” weather for late November (upper 50s!) and the next day THE WRATH OF THE SNOW GODS HAS FALLEN UPON YOU.

That’s what I woke up to this late morning, 15 minutes before I had to be at work (yay not setting alarms!) and left to in the late afternoon. I had a solid 3 inches of snow on my car and there’s a good 5 or 6 inches outside from the snow we got all day.

After putting up our Christmas tree, because this weather is clearly appropriate for it, I threw on my coat, boots, and earmuffs, and ran around outside trying to take pictures of the snow. A little difficult with not a lot of light to work with.

But I got a couple shots I liked. Here’s one of them!

Hoping to take some nice pics tomorrow during the day. I’ll also be at the Detroit Zoo for their first weekend of Wild Lights light exhibit, so I’m planning on working my magic there as well. Anyone else going?

Do Not Go Gentle

Miscellaneous

I found this guy laying by someone’s curb on my walk to take pictures of all the junk everyone had outside their houses tonight. Unfortunately, I was too late to take photos of the tons of stuff some neighboring streets had out cause the garbage trucks had gone around already. However, I did manage to snap a few shots and I might go back and do it again this weekend if there’s still streets with junk out.

But for now, enjoy the abandoned toy.
