Photoshoot: Tango in Pittsburgh

Posted: January 8th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Photography

This past November, I had the opportunity to perform with the Pittsburgh Symphony – or, as I was calling it, Friendsburgh, seeing as three of my best friends in the world lived there. One of those friends, Chewey, teaches tango lessons and plays in a tango band in the Friendsburgh area. Chewey, being the opportunist that he is, asked if I would bring my camera with me on the trip and be willing to take some pictures for promotional materials and a future website redesign. So, here are some of the shots from that trip. I’m not photographing much these days, but wish I was. I was surprised at how much I learned about setting up portraits in that one photoshoot. I’m hoping to have more opportunities like this in the future – so let me know if you ever need a portrait or a headshot!

    Brooke, I’d definitely be interested! I don’t have any good lighting equipment though, so our best bet would be to do it outside some time.
