A few weeks ago, I grabbed coffee with Michelle aka gold-hearted girl. I have long admired her lovely rope and stone jewelry designs. I can't remember how we originally "met" online, but I was thrilled to discover that she was now living in Brooklyn. I am always up for meeting anyone from my online world in person (though I think my non-blogger and non-freelance friends still find this very odd :P). We chatted over coffee at Au Breve and I grabbed a few shots of her.
All taken at f1.2. I rarely get to shoot wide open these days (food doesn't look so great when you only see a sliver of focus!), but I think it can still look good in portraits.
