Exposures from Powell / by Jon Paciaroni

Back in June I made this image with long time friends the Tuffeild family at Lake Powell in Utah. I wouldn't consider myself a family portrait photographer, and you can't really go wrong with any shot taken from this place. Truth is; I feel it's important to break the mold every so often and work with new subjects... within any creative field for that matter. In some cases, curiosity keeps you healthy. Thanks again Tom, Mel, Gwenny, and Bubbs for playing along!

One more image from the trip...Star trail images have always fascinated me and Lake Powell is such a surreal location for long exposure techniques. I had the shutter open for 2 hours here.
