Say Goodbye to Bad Hair Days

Osis Dust it.

This amazing magic powder works wonders.  Flat hair, curly hair, unruly hair, long hair, short hair,  
All beaten into submission with  a sprinkling of this potent stuff.
It’s like a Fairy Godmother in a bottle.

Aria, youtubed, how to use it, when she first got it.  Everybody wants to make this very complex.   Aria, found that it is really quite simple.  She has super long hair down to her butt. 
She found that all you have to do is, sprinkle a little into the palm of your hand, 
take some in your finger tips and put it where you need it.   Hair is magically whipped into shape.

Got to try it.  You won’t believe how well it works.   50mL is about the size of a lipstick tube.  
This convenient size makes it easy to carry with you everywhere, for quick touch ups.  
A little bit goes along way.   
Goodbye,  bad hair days.

Filigree Bracelet and Ring Set

   model - Aria     photos - Zorian   

   Light is the key element in Photography.  I love natural light.  
I have used small flash, strobes, and HMI’s.    But, I keep coming back to natural light. 

I try and find the correct location, at the right time of day, at the perfect moment. 

Voila, Magic! 

I love to  KISS *  my photographs.     * Keep It  Simple Stupid. *

I find that the less equipment that I am using the more I can concentrate on the task at hand,   
Making Magic.

Winter at the Beach

   model - Aria     photos - Zorian   

 Wondering the beach, searching for sea treasures, late on a warm sunny winters afternoon,
is a time of peace and solitude.   Always, finding amazing treasures while enjoying the 
warmth of the golden sun, that is my Nirvana.

Photographed, natural light, just before sunset.

In Between Times

     model - Aria     photos - Zorian   

The ancient Druids called fog,  “In Between Times”.  I believe, what they meant was,
a time that was magical and all things were possible. 

Aria and I were at the beach on New Year’s Eve, awaiting the sun set on the final day of 2011.   
Every thing was normal and suddenly . . .

This bank of fog came rolling in from the north-west, across the water.  Just there and no where else.  It was pure magic, surreal, very Stephen King ish.   It was blue sky everywhere else, except
over the water in this one area,  thick rolling magical Fog.  

The pictures that are here are a 10 minute period and then we were surrounded by thick fog.  
I used a Sony DSC W350 that I carry in my backpack.  All natural light.
