My Dear Friend Sylvia Spiro asked me to do a portrait of her for her website. I think it is an honor to be asked by a fellow photographer to do their portrait, so I accepted this kind request and started thinking of the best way to capture the spirit of my friend. It suddenly occurred to me that since Sylvia loves to shoot nature, landscape and astro photography, that I have to shoot her with the stars!! So we picked the next new moon night and a perfect spot (well near perfect, as we had company hiding out in the bushes, but don’t worry, they were harmless and minding their own business!!! ;-)) and set out for an almost all night adventure!
This place was magical for me because I got to experience a sky that was littered with sparkling stars and the Milky Way was visible to the eye. I had such a great time, that I already put it on my calendar to shoot star-trails on the next new moon! Thank you to Sylvia Spiro for being such a patient model!
