MorningPortrait #19 - August 28, 2013

Yeaaahhh … definitely cheated on this one, not a stranger but my beautiful girlfriend Kyla! The stars aligned, the moon was blue, and we miraculously had a day off together. She is also a temporary railroader pursuing the creative life, so her schedule being equally as hectic as mine, makes shared days off few and far between.

Out for coffee and after careful seat selection we were sitting in the best coffee light available. Big window light right, acting as key, and bouncing off the neighbor table adding a little warmth from below. Hair light coming from the window in back, also working double time, bouncing off the wall as fill. After catching this I decided I liked it too much to not use, and wouldn’t bother stalking a stranger before the harsh mid day light set in. Can you blame me? 😉

Oh, and be sure to check out Kyla’s blog, Riding on Rail Cars – Slave to an Age-Old Trade.
