Sleeping Beauty (Dish)

I bought a 22" beauty dish with the thought of using it everyday for everything! HA! It really does throw some amazing light, but let's be real, hauling a 22" reflector around is not the easiest thing in the world to do. So I was pretty stoked when I got this little assignment for the Tulsa World. Me and the beauty dish were off... to photograph a real life beauty at the Tulsa Ballet.

Soo Youn Cho tore her ACL, typically a career ending injury, but she is back in the spotlight with the Tulsa Ballet's production of Sleeping Beauty. For more information on Soo Youn's story, watch for the upcoming article in the Tulsa World.

A little taste...

... I did not have the time (only a few hours) to do this story right, but while I was in South Louisiana I was invited to a Cochon de Lait at the home of Barry Jean Ancelet. I can't tell you how excited I was, but Felipe and I were both exhausted, so we called it a night just as the party got started. Here are a few photos from the evening. I can tell you that without a doubt this story is already on the books for next year.
