This one is from wonderful portrait and fashion photographer, Mary Bel. Check it out:
Thanks, Mary Bel! :) (and that’s something I’ve been preaching for years — it can all the difference, because “less is more.”
Here’s the official trailer from Mary Bel’s KelbyOne Online Class where she shows you how to take everyday objects, and how to work on a super tight DIY budget to create some really creative portraits.
Here’s the link to watch her class right now (you will love it!).
Disney’s Cruella is a Must-See!!!
OK, a bunch of us who are all vaccinated (close friends and family members) rented an entire AMC movie theater for a private screening of Cruella (it was only $240 for the whole huge theater [we all split the cost], and we could have up to 20 guests, and it was even a Saturday night), so we chose Disney’s new Cruella (as in Cruella Devlle of the 101 Dalmatians) as our show and it was OUTSTANDING!!!
First, just the fact that we were in a movie theater again was awesome on its own, not to mention the whole private screening (and being able to talk at regular volume during the movie), but the movie itself was just so good — way better than I was expecting, with some great storytelling about how a sweet young girl wound up becoming Cruella. Emma Stone was fantastic in the role, and her co-star Emma Thompson was brilliant. If nothing else, they will take the Oscar for Best Costume Design (and the soundtrack is awesome!). Anyway, check it out if you have a chance (I put the trailer below).
OK, I’ve gotta get back to work — today is the deadline for the current book I’m finishing up, and well…not sure I’ll have it done today. I might need another day. Or two. But I’m really close. Anyway, back to work for me. Here’s wishing you a fantastic weekend! Go see Cruella and watch Mary Bel’s new class. :)
P.S. Don’t forget — at the end of this month it’s the iPhone Photography Conference. Two full days, two training tracks, and lots to learn from some incredible instructors. Here’s the link for tickets and more info.
