Harbor at the Coffee Gallery

I went to the Coffee Gallery inside the Open Book, at 1011 Washington AV S., Mineapolis, for our Strobist shoot today.

Today was going to be spent shooting "products", but thank goodness Harbor came to the shoot. In fact, she was the only model today.

Joe Foreman and I grabbed her first thing and set up some lights and began shooting. When we were done shooting Harbor or I should say when another group grabbed her, Joe and I attempted some photos of an expresso. It wasn't working out for me so after a few shots I drank the expresso.

Thank you Harbor for coming to todays shoot to ease my pain of doing only shots of products.

Scott Traczyk, Chris Gerber and I went to the Guthrie Theatre last night to take some photos. I was planning to shoot with Bill Houlton, then a couple days ago he had to back out, so I decided not to go and I never finalized any plans with any models.

I was sitting at my computer finishing up my trip report when Chris Gerber called and said he needed to get out and take some photos. A couple hours later we met up with Scott who had made arrangements to meet Brianna at the Guthrie. Scott was kind enough to share his model.

I had a fun time. Thank you to Brianna, Scott and Chris. I've posted a couple photos of Brianna. I'll post more later, but now I have to run!!!

21 Day Canoe Trip to the "Little North"

My trip report is now posted on another blog. I hope you enjoy it! There are plenty of photos. This trip was filled with "excitement", one after another, because of the high water.
