The sandal is afoot part II

So last year i posted a blog with a bunch of photos that i did for Cobian Sandals. They are a local sandal company and thanks to my now former neighbor Angela Arnold (no longer neighbor and now Calvanico) i was given the task of photographing kids running around having fun and wearing the sandals. It became very apparent to me that day that i was very surely becoming an older man, trying to keep up with these kids was the most exhausting thing i have ever done. Anywho, to make a long story short, i got a call from Angela again saying that they wanted me to do a second shoot (much to my surprise). So we scheduled the day and the day of the shoot......freezing cold and completely overcast. It was a very stark contrast from last years shoot were we had nice warm sunny weather. Well i always say that bad weather makes better pictures........never did i think it would come back to bite me in the butt. The afternoon was still a lot of fun, and i think we got some cool stuff.....but then again thats not for me to decide. With a lack of sunlight i had to create my own warm light, so i slapped an orange gel on the ol flash and viola. Only 2 photos for now, oh and just so you are aware i am experimenting with some post processing techniques. so thats why the photos look "weird" if you have an opinion, good or bad, please leave a comment. I love feedback and this is a big learning experience for me. Ill post more later along with some of the originals, but i need to get them done 1st and off to Cobian before my deadline. Enjoy!
