But in the last week, I've had two friends ask me to do some pictures for them, and here are some samples.
It's so much fun to take pictures of beautiful people who are NATURALLY beautiful, not made up and/or uptight about it. Both of them just charmed the camera for me, and I didn't have to do much to get them to come alive in the lens. And I actually captured some personality there, too, not just faces.
Both sets of photos were taken at the Rosicrucian Museum in San Jose. I like the place, because it has a great variety of colors and textures to incorporate. Click on either image for larger versions (click on "All Sizes" on Flickr to get the BIG version).
