SOME NEW SHOTS

Its always a challenge to shoot natural light headshots midday on a bright day, but I have a couple of 'go to' locations that offer good cover with lots of light coming at us from different angles.

Much of the shots were in their tasting room which had some great velvet textures on the walls. There were some acrobatics on the distillery side including a trapeze but I'm still processing...
