Poulos Family Portrait

Kelly's mom and sister joined us in downtown Golden this afternoon for a post-Thanksgiving family portrait. I can't exactly say that the weather cooperated, but we had fun and got some great images!

You can find more about James and his guitars at, and you can see more images here:

Please disregard the demeanor of the rather unwilling subjects for these lighting tests, I'm simply trying to get multiple off-camera flashes dialed in with various diffusing techniques. It's a lot more difficult without modeling lights, and visualizing where the lights is going to go with reflectors is difficult at best. We'll try again sometime...
