not digging the colors at all. The pink is wayyy too over powering and doesn't seem to fit the overall color palette.

just my .02 though

Your right and i agree,, thats why i started playing around with the shirt colors. That top she had on was wow,,im not sure what it was. I like the 2nd one best because i felt it blended with the chaise a little better. I was more concerned about how the light was going to bounce around now that we have completely sealed up the studio.......heck of a paint project

Studio is L shaped. 23'x14' on long....23'x12' on the other side,,3 storage areas,,ceiling is 8' 2",, and there is a bathroom/changing area that will go in next month pending what uncle SAM is going to pays us back.

Ahhh. No more seniors to edit before Christmas. Still plenty of family work to do though. :(

From what I read it happened like this (except in this case the guy was lucky). There was two sets of tracks side by side

I never like shooting on the tracks. I only do it upon request from the client. Even then I try to urge them another direction. Of course there is also the story of the bride that drowned doing a trash the dress in a river. People need to use their heads. Sad story.

I no longer offer "on" the train track portraits, but I will take them "near" the tracks, at a distance its not possible to get hit, but you can still see the tracks in the background. A couple of years ago we were about 5 yards from the train as it passed us and it was really hard to breath with all the wind it caused. got some cool shots of the senior and her hair though. :D

I have done tracks twice before I knew better. People ask and I refuse unless they know of a dead section. Not worth the risk or thousand(s) of dollars fine.

I got caught by the cops on the tracks...I was freaking out. I just pretended I didn't know anything about it and he let me off with a warning. Fortunately it was with clients I knew really well :)
