That photo of Ada is exquisite! It’s such a detailed artsy shot that captures the essence of her beauty! Well done!

Cheers, Hollows.

Absolutely AWESOME photos of Ada and Harumi! We love what you're doing with the photos and hearing about the girls! Hope the storm passes soon and without any issues but you have the right idea of keeping otherwise occupied and being creative during it!

Hugs,

Rari

Ada touching that head (part deux)

Ada finished her workout and was entering her cooldown phase. I noticed that she would shift into classical figure poses briefly between stretches.

When our eyes met, Ada winked at me.

Ah— of course, of course... Camera at the ready!

I snapped some quick shots. At this point, the light was green from the midday sun streaming through the leaves in the trees.

Ada suggested that I keep the green as a creative color element.

She also requested that I refrain from using the green skin tones as an excuse to make her look like a zombie again. (o,o)

I laughed at the reference and promised I wouldn't do that to her.

If I could maintain the correct camera settings, Ada's graceful pose would allow the light to cascade across her body, creating amazing transitions and highlights.

I tried to retain as much detail as I could... from the glow of perspiration to the goosebumps on her skin. I managed to capture many little details of Ada's body, down to the peach fuzz on her skin.

We were both very pleased with the results. The full size image shows off the wonderful details.





...



Fair lady Harumi

Having finished Ada's green image, I turned my attention towards a different color experiment. Harumi's head shot.

I am working on several color treatments for Harumi's portraits against a yellow background. In this one, I wanted to create as much contrast as possible between the yellow wall and Harumi's skin.


I used Harumi's hair as a sub-framing device, creating a physical border separating the background from her face.

Pushing the image contrast makes her skin almost appear white.

I removed much of the mid level shadow tones, leaving just the flushed areas of Harumi's skin to suggest volume. This provided a delicate touch of color to the almost line drawing quality of Harumi's high contrast facial features.

The bold aqua colored necklace and dress straps mirror the subframing function of the hair, but in cool hues.

Cheers, Hollows!

Although Ada looks forward to photo sessions now, she's too shy to ask me to take her photo.

Ada will find the room with the nicest lighting, then nonchalantly call me over for something unrelated to photography. I'll find her wistfully staring out the window, and my camera will happen to be neatly laid out at the perfect vantage point for shooting her portrait. (^,^)

Hello Rari!

I'm glad you are enjoying our thread.

Sigh, unfortunately the storm is still here. It's been raining for almost 24 hours straight. We have a brief respite before the storm picks up again, so I'm going to rush out to grab groceries.

Coincidentally, the drab weather inspired the next couple images...



...


A picture indoor and in gray

My energy level is a bit low today due to the weather. Ada encouraged me to find inspiration in the dreary weather while Eve set up a late morning hygge.

The house filled with the rich aroma of fresh brewed coffee as Eve invited everyone to the sofa for a snuggle and snacks.

We savored our java with dandelion puff cookies while we watched the raindrops dance off the leaves on the trees outside.

I took Ada's advice to heart and created some more images. In the spirit of the gray day, I worked in B&W.



Harumi

Many photographers are encouraged to begin by working in black and white. One of the reasons is that it simplifies the elements in your composition.

I was dissatisfied with the color in this photo of Harumi. I felt that the yellow background was competing with her skin tones and that Harumi's bright aqua dress was diverting attention away from her face.

By converting the image to grayscale, I eliminated the color clashes and was able to focus purely on tonal values. I feel this created a much clearer, impactful image.

Ada, again with the head touching! (part tres)

After her workout, Ada invited me to watch her bathe... or to put it less scandalously, I photographed Ada washing her hair by the window.

The backlighting and beautiful distribution of light created the perfect opportunity for a B&W composition. Although I shot this in color, my intent was always to treat this as a grayscale image. I paid close attention to the tonal values across Ada's body and looked for ways to carve contrasting forms from shadow and light.

Even though I intended Ada to be primarily in silhouette, I wanted to elicit enough facial detail from the shadows so her personality shines through.

In order to reintroduce a sense of warnth, I processed the image as a tritone with yellow in the highlights and a blue/green tint in the shadows.

BBQ PDQ

Harumi continued to express a desire to explore American cuisine when I asked her what she would like me to cook.

BBQ! *chu!*

As she enthusiastically chirped each syllable, Harumi made a hand gesture approximating the letter.

She finished by blowing a kiss.

The request quickly became a chant with Ada & Eve joining in, complete with choreographed hand gestures.


\(^,^)/ \(❦ ᴗ ❦)/ \(^,^)/

B... B... Q... *chu!*

B... B... Q... *chu!*

B... B... Q... *chu!*


After I stopped laughing, I assured everyone that I would make us some scrumptious pork ribs for dinner.

*Yahoo!*

Since Harumi suggested the dish, I asked her to help come up with a brand new sauce for the meat.

She blushed. There was a slight look of panic in Harumi's eyes.

I tried to comfort her.

Don't worry, Harumi— we will all help each other to make the sauce.

Ada gave her a smiling nod. Eve squeezed Harumi's hand and winked.

Although she appreciated the support, Harumi was still nervous. She had no idea what went into American BBQ sauce.

One of the wonderful things about BBQ is that everybody has a unique way of making their sauces. Go with what you think would taste good!

OK gang, let's come up with our own BBQ sauce...

Eve, would you like to start us off?

Eve's eyes lit up. She nodded and went through the fridge. She emerged carrying a huge container of mustard.

(Uh oh, I've never made a BBQ sauce with mustard...)

Beaming with pride, Eve thrust the yellow bottle up into the air.

Wow, that's an adventurous start, Eve!

Mustard has a strong flavor. Ada, what can we use to balance this?

Ada immediately dashed to the pantry. She emerged with armfuls of sweeteners.

Brown sugar.

Honey.

Maple syrup.

Nice idea, sweetie!

Ada smiled.

Harumi pumped her fists in support.

Well, I should consider the yang to your yin, eh?

I picked up bottles of plain and apple cider vinegar.

Eve & Ada nodded appreciatively. Harumi clapped— she was getting into it now.

OK, Harumi, it's your turn. Think about the combination of flavors we have so far. What do you think is missing?

Harumi looked at the ingredients, glanced at the girls, then turned towards me.

Her eyes narrowed. Harumi rolled up her sleeves and marched into the pantry.

After some scuffling, she emerged with a tiny container.

It was a bottle of smoked chipotle hot sauce.

That's a great idea, Harumi! BBQ sauce could use a smoky, spicy bite!

The girls cheered in appreciation.

Harumi beamed.

We continued to go around a couple times until we had a mountain of fantastic ingredients.

Next, we began assembling the sauce. We would take turns tasting, then adding the next component.

After a few minutes, our sauce was ready.

Wow, it was really tasty! Sharp, sweet, tangy, smoky, spicy... Our very own unique sauce!

Such a fabulous creation deserves its own name, don't you think?

Everyone nodded in agreement.

Harumi, since this is your first BBQ sauce, why don't you give it a name?

She nodded solemnly. Harumi's face grew pensive.

The girls looked on expectantly.

After a long pause, Harumi suddenly pointed dramatically into the air.

SUPER TEAMWORK AWESOME SAUCE!

Eve & Ada giggled and applauded.

What an appropriate name! Tonight, we're having ribs bathed in Super Teamwork Awesome sauce!

Harumi quickly led a new choreographed chant:


\(^,^)/ \(❦ ᴗ ❦)/ \(^,^)/

B... B... Q... *chu!*

SUPER TEAMWORK AWESOME SAUCE!

B... B... Q... *chu!*

SUPER TEAMWORK AWESOME SAUCE!

Your photos are exquisite and really bring DS ladies to life.

They're clearly exciting your imagination and I love your story scripts.

Please forgive me for suggesting it, but I'm only doing so because I know you're up to it . . . . could you get your girls to act out each line of your script above? This is how I started and an illustrated story is so much fun, and fun to do, and your DS lady is up to the challenge.

Best wishes

Harem
