And The Winner Is...

Oh friends... that was way too hard!  In the end I just couldn't choose.    Instead, I wrote everyone's name down a a piece of paper and used a random number generator to pick a number... and the computer chose Catherine Rodriguez (@catherine.rodriguez)!!! Congratulations Catherine!!  Please send me an email and I'll get you all hooked up with your copy of The Missing Link: A Film Photographer's Guide to Studio Strobes!  Woohoo!

The Missing Link will be on sale right here on Little Bellows starting on Thursday!  So be sure to check in!  And if you want to make sure you don't miss the big announcement, you can sign up for my newsletter here.

Speaking of strobes...

People are often worried that using strobes is going to change the look of their images from soft and airy to hard and "flashy". But the truth is when used properly, strobes can give you a very soft and luminous photo.

All of these images we shot using a strobe mixed with natural ambient light (a.k.a my new favorite technique).  So lovely!

Have a great day everyone!  And I'll see you back here on Thursday!!
