trude – photo swap! – treasure island + alameda

you might remember the fabulous trude from this post of the photo swap i did with her and nancy last year. that was a super fun time, and i was dying for round two – finally got my chance when trude, along with her boy, made a visit to the bay area last month! since i’d been talking about the awesomeness of treasure island for a while, we decided to shoot there. it was quite windy over there, and we were both shivering and called it quits after a relatively short time (just as the fog started to roll in), but that didn’t stop me from getting tons of fabulous shots of her!! she is totally gorgeous and a fabulous model. nancy mentioned on her blog that photographers make the best models, and she is totally right!

it was a completely fun afternoon. it’s always super inspiring to hang out with another photog, bouncing off ideas and talking shop. and i love trying out new ideas and experimenting at these swaps!

here are a bunch of shots to share. notice how on top of things i am this time, not taking 5 months to finish editing this time πŸ˜‰ heh. go, me!

hellooooooo, gorgeous!!!

her boy came along too. he’s a filmmaker, and he just bought a dSLR with video capabilities and was shooting footage around the island. and i took these snaps of him as well.

this truck is quite possibly my most favorite thing on the island. trude’s boy was joking that these are “trucker’s montly” shots. heh.

hawt! πŸ™‚

so we both posed with this blue container, and leaned on it. both of it ended up with blue paint on our arms (and in my case, on the white portion of my dress. oops). note to self for future shoots: don’t make clients lean on this if they don’t want to end up looking like someone from the blue man group πŸ™‚

it was trude’s boy’s idea to shoot with this fence. i’ll give him a win for coming up with that idea πŸ™‚

a jumping shot, just cuz πŸ™‚

afterward, trude invited me to dinner with them and some other folks. yum, sushi πŸ™‚ we headed out to alameda, and while we were waiting for the others to show up, blew some bubbles. fun!!

a quick snap of her walking down the street because i liked how the backlighting looked against her hair!

after dinner, we kinda played around with available light. one of her and the boy (aww):

and we spent a good 30 minutes sprawled out on the ground in the parking lot for shots like these. we are nerds πŸ™‚

downtown alameda is totally cute and charming and i wish we had more time to spend shooting there. next time! πŸ™‚

it was super fun hanging out with you and the boy, trude!! i can’t wait for round 3 (with nancy again!) next time i’m in so-cal!

trude posted a couple of film shots of me (and other gorgeous photos from her trip) here but i’m dying to see more!! she makes me want to pick up a film camera too!

    Love, love, love. Seriously. And I’m so happy the bubbles shots came out!! It was the best, even if we froze our butts off and my hair decided to do its own thing thanks to the fog. πŸ˜‰ Will share mine soon, promise!

    Caroline —

    Your photos are supremely made of win — especially those bubble shots. I need some of these for my desktop backgrounds.

    Wonderful work!


    (P.S. See, I don’t always have to win. I can give credit where it’s due… which is why, right now… I WIN.)

    Love Trude’s outfits, my favorite are the ones of her on the steps all girly like and of her on the ground, portrait up close. πŸ˜‰
