Sunset Silhouettes Part 2

 Monday, June 6, 2011

I almost titled this post "My Friends Put Up With Me."  That's because my friends have all come to accept that being friends with me means I will make them pose for me on occasion, or do things like jump up and down over and over until I get the perfect shot.

We went camping by the beach in San Onofre this weekend and after my last Sunset Silhouettes I was eager to try it again.  I think I did these a little too early though, it wasn't quite sunset yet and therefore there wasn't yet as much color in the sky.  They also aren't quite as silhouetted--you can still see faces and some detail a bit, but I liked them that way.  They have a very different vibe then the first set but I still think they are lots of fun.

I also love that every couple I asked to jump had a very distinct style and brought something totally new to the pictures!

I shot my friends Staci and Andy first.  They just got married a couple years ago and I had a vision for their pictures--the goal: to kiss mid air!  It resulted in some head knocking at first, but then they got the hang of it.

I should also mention, these were taken on a bluff far above the beach--basically on the edge of a cliff, so we definitely had to be careful with our jumping!

Staci & Andy





Kristin & Matt

Their goal was a mid-air high five. I had a little trouble getting the timing down!


Megan & Dave


Lynette & Ed


And my favorites...The Group Shot!




*I'm entering this last picture for Captivus's letter "B" challenge.  B can be both for Beach and Bluff! And also entering it into Perceptive Perspective's "Sunset" challenge.
