Ariel's Mentoring Sesh

A while back I sold my trusty 40D and upgraded to the 5D which I am currently using.
Ariel is the lovely girl who bought my camera.
She came back to me today for some in depth instruction and some guided exploration into the art of photography.
It was so fun to reunite with my old camera that had brought me so much joy back in the day and it was GREAT to see Ariel again.
She has a really great grasp on how to get a good exposure so we worked on exploring our subject and our light, along with various custom settings, and photoshop.
Caitlin, Ariel's sister, was our model and she kindly braved the freezing cold to pose for our cameras.
We had such a great time and while I dont know how Ariels finished products will turn out (yet!), I saw some of her captures and they looked wonderful!

My point of view went a little something like this...

Ariel directing her sister and working her magic.

How self absorbed am I to sneak in a self portrait while on a shoot?
Well I justified it by the facts that...
1. It wasnt really my shoot, it was Ariel's.
2. I havent taken a self portrait in a LONG time and my hair looked kinda funky today.
I apologize for the shameless self promotion. :)

Thank you Ariel and Caitlin for a totally fun afternoon.
***All of these photos were shot using my 85mm 1.8 lens that I much prefer over the 50mm 1.4. In case you wondered.***

Well, your hair DID look fantastic so how could you help yourself? I see nothing wrong with it.
Your hair is so cute!
Thanks girls!! :)
I really like your self portrait and your hair looks great.
