Joyce and Lida
I had my friend Lida come over to take photos of my daughter Joyce, because she needs to send a photo (headshot) with her applications to conservatories. Lida is a lifelong photographer, and she only works with real film in black and white. It was a fascinating experience watching her work. She allowed me to follow her around with my digital and take some shots. I learned so much from her about lighting and setting up a shot. Here are some of the best that I took, but they don't compare to hers, which are amazing. I've only looked at contact sheets, but they are astounding.
