“G” Family/Clinton Indiana Family Photographer

Yes…you are seeing it right. This is another “G” family session. For this session, this family and I met at Bridgeton in beautiful Parke County. This was also the calm before the storm, so to speak. I think about a week later, the annual Covered Bridge Festival descended on this calm quiet little town. 🙂

You’ve met little “A” before when it was scorching hot, now, meet her older brother “C”. This is such a wonderful family!

 

Enjoy some of my favorites. Of course, I have a lot.

Rural Parke County

These were taken back at the end of November when Jen was here. It was so cold that day….so I stayed in my car and took these.  Most of these were taken on the way back from Bridgeton, Indiana. You all might remember that I did my senior shoots here. This is a favorite place of mine.

Sue Henry shared this texture overlay that she got free from flickr. Visit sue’s site to see her incredible work.

Parke county cars

I’m not trying to “piggyback” on Jen’s post, but I thought it would be neat to get two different perspectives of the same subject. Of course, Jen was the brave one and actually got out of the car. I took these shots from the warm car. ;o)

Jen and I have talked about how we are “drive-by” shooters and have over the last two years came up with some pretty funny one liners about that. I’ll spare you those. lol Anyway, check out Jen’s version of these shots at the link below.

Mansfield, Indiana

The family went to Mansfield today to get some photo opportunities. Bri and I were snapping photos like crazy. I did one HDR with 3 exposures then settled just shooting in RAW and converting them. It was just easier that way. What a beautiful place, but totally set up for vendors and what not. I went into the Welcome Center/Store and talked to the cashier. I asked if they do consignments here and she said that they do. I left her my name, phone number and gave her my website address to give to the owners to see if they would be interested in my work. I told her that I use tonemapping in my images to give the photographs a unique look. I also told her that I could make calenders of the Bridges of Parke County or Views from around Parke. We’ll see what happens. I’m going to go back the last weekend in April during the mushroom festival with some 4×6 examples of my photographs.

These are only a small portion of what I took. If you are interested in seeing the rest you can go to my site.http://JulieLawsonPhotography.smugmug.com/…275262804_bQddh

I chose to do a dry brush technique on this photograph. I think it gives it something a little different. I like how it turned out.
