Click on the photos to see an enlarged version of my awesome photography! LOL

This is NOT a real picture-taking session. These are models who volunteered their time to help the photographers with posing, taking pictures from different angels, with different lighting techniques, etc. to help us learn.

Photographers gather at Trapnall Hall.

Lance, the president of APPA, hands out name tags.

The model bride doing what a bride does the day of her wedding. This is when the photo sessions usually start these days.

Curling her hair.

The photographers are gathered in the dressing room with the bride to capture those priceless moments. This is my precious friend, Barb, who is a photographer and invited a "wannabe" like me to participate in this fun day!

I love this picture. The model was truly checking something on the back of her dress. It was only a instant but I caught it!

She dons her veil.

The beautiful back of her dress.

I love this picture with the groom looking on in the background.

The models steal a moment when the phtographers are discussing a question. Cute!

The happy couple!

Barb takes a moment to make a phone call.

The bride anticipates the arrival of her bridegroom.

He arrives!

The photographers!

The bride strikes a beautiful pose.

Lunch at The Flying Fish with Barb, Larry, Kristen, and Heather!

The seniors take the stage!

Some of the "graffiti" under the I-30 downtown bridge.

Supermodel wind was blowing!

What a cool black and white shot but I wish I had not centered the pole.

Walking back to Trapnall Hall we spotted several interesting shots.

The artist in me did a double take when I saw this painted on the side of a delivery truck.




The following pictures were taken at the Foster Robinson House in Little Rock. It is the former home of Senator Joe T. Robinson.

This is the one of our models but I have to say this is the way we were all feeling at the end of a very productive day.

What an awesome time I had today with the Arkansas Professional Photographers Association. I learned so much and am so proud of some of the pictures I was able to get with my little Canon XT Rebel. My camera looked like a little baby camera compared to these incredibly huge cameras the professional photographers were carryingl. I just tried to act nonchalant LOL--like I was supposed to be there--

All of the pictures above are pictures I took today as we learned from one another. These were not real picture-taking sessions but models who volunteered to help us out. I would like to say that the bride and groom truly are newlyweds. They just got married in September. We had seniors in high school volunteer for us to take "mock" senior pictures.

We met at Trapnall Hall first thing this morning--talked, learned, shot pictures of the bride and groom. From there we went downtown and ate together at The Flying Fish, then shot the pictures of the seniors in the RiverMarket area, then walked back to Trapnall Hall, drove to the Foster Robinson House on Broadway and took pictures of the family there.
