I spent last week in Carefree, Arizona at a photography conference. It was such a great learning experience! I also had a blast getting to know other wonderful photographers from around the world. We stayed at the Carefree Resorts and Villas and it was so pretty. On the last day we got a chance to go out and do some shooting. We took turns with our friends as our models and did the set-up completely on our own throughout the resort. Below are a few of mine!!!
I loved this gorgeous bright Arizona sun and the way everything was warm and dreamy in the middle of January.
This shot is of Stephanie Zettl. She and her husband are very talented photographers who volunteered a lot of their time at the convention to take photos of many of us (me included!) Another photographer was taking her picture and she looked so mysterious and beautiful I snagged a photo of my own. She is a very beautiful woman.
When I was walking around taking pictures I saw this bush that formed an archway. So I posed my subject below it and let that gorgeous Arizona light make her glow. It was so nice to not be freezing cold while shooting portraits!
I had to try out my new 5d mark II in a real low light situation as this is what the camera excels in. All the light on this cactus is from the environment around it. I loved the way the moon was shining behind it. The Arizona desert is so beautiful!
