the flats

Lacey and I held our own for-no-real-reason-other-than-fun photo shoot on Saturday. We even had a sexy model to accompany us. This came about because:

1) We've been curious about the Salt Flats for a while now.
2) We never grew out of playing dress-ups.
3) We had a mock shoe ad assignment we were supposed to do for photo class, but never did. Until now. Shoes aren't necessarily the focus, but the idea sort of remains.
4) We are nerds, which I reluctantly explained to the guy directing the Honda television commercial 100 yards northeast of us.

Here are a few of my favorite shots, so far. I hope to have a bunch uploaded on Flickr soonish.

Forget the model...how about that babe-alicious bag and adorable umbrella? Just kidding...your model is dead sexy. And the salt flats are so so cool. Great great shots.

the photos are beautiful! Did you do any color correcting or is everything that white and soft?

Amazing photos, now I'm curious about salt flats.

Thank you! I used my Sony Alpha 100 DSLR. (I'm a lone wolf with this camera but I really like it.)

And, no, I had to do very little color correcting. I don't even know how to do color correcting, to be honest, so I try hard to get it right the first time. The lighting out there is hard to mess up because it comes from the sky and from the ground. :)
