Low-light with Rebekah at PUG

This is my friend, Rebekah. She is a great photographer and pseudo model (although she won't admit to the latter). Here are the long-awaited pics of her from the January PUG meeting (photography group) in Salt Lake City. Brody Dezember had us shoot in the dark with only a tiny 4x4 spotlight for light. It was a great stretch for me (hadn't been a big fan of low-light shooting). My exposure was all over the place so the images came out a bit too grainy in some shots but sometimes that's delicious, especially in black & white. Let me know what you think... unless you just want to be mean then don't say anything at all :o)

See how dark it was in Brody's studio? That window ROCKS!
Saw these GORGEOUS chairs & set-up chess board next door through the window. I could lick this picture because of the colors (that dirty yellow, plum, black, cream and grey... mm-mm-mmmm). Here's my cute friend, Stacy, on the fly (blurry but I like her smirky smirk).
There are more pics from this night on the other photographers blogs: Katie, Dustin and Brody. Looking at theirs I notice the differences (of course) but also that they didn't post a gazillion pics like I did - woops! Hope you don't mind all the images.

Low light is TOUGH and you pulled it off beautifully! Rebekah is a pretty darn cute model too. :)

Scott... welcome! Thanks for the "wow" - I like that.

Haley! Thanks for the props :o) I've been meaning to get in touch with you regarding a cute couple you had a while back. I think his name is Gerard. Funny story to share with you sometime.
