Erika Lynn Handmade Handbags

The other day I had a really cool product shoot with an incredible Charleston artist, designer, and producer of fine handmade purses, handbags, shoes, bow ties, and accessories!

Erika Lynn has been nominated to the “Best of Charleston” this year. She’s in the top 5 and could win her category!!! If you know Erika and would like to vote for her, here’s the link:

Shelia’s Designs

I’ve photographed for Sheila Thompson before…check out my portrait of the artist at work.  She is such a creative spirit and the biggest sweetheart on the planet!  I had the privilege of shooting some more of her new designs for their catalog.  But photographing beautiful garden decorations among bright flowers on sunny “spring” days in the middle of winter is kind of tough!  J  So we contacted Magnolia Gardens and were pleased to be able to do our shoot in their Conservatory.  Using Nikon’s amazing Creative Lighting System, controlled via RadioPoppers, I was able to simulate early morning sunlight streaming through the foliage.  So inspite of being in a dim Arboretum on an overcast day, the images came out great!
