I’ve been practicing yoga for a good decade and it’s been next to impossible for me to do this pose called the Toe Stand (or its unpronounceable hippy version “Padangustasana”). But yippee, this week, I finally am able to balance for more than 10 seconds. Next, I’ll conquer the world! BTW, this photo was processed with an Instagram filter.

In the mean time, other exciting news from my studio:
Profoto is now a sponsor of CHS
I am a big fan of electronic flash leader Profoto and swear by its D1 Air on all my shoots. Unlike other strobe manufacturers, Profoto’s gear produces consistent color temperatures while toggling between different intensity levels of strobe flash. This is fantastic news for me and my studio as we look forward to exciting future collaborations.
I was on Mostly Photo as a co-host!
Last week, when I was invited as a guest on Mostly Photo, I was really excited. But when Leo Laporte, an old friend, asked me to stand in for his co-host Lisa this week, I was beyond ecstatic. Let me know what you think of my first shot at interviewing: watch Episode 8 with Rick Sammon here. Thanks to the love in the TWiT chat room and on Twitter and Facebook. You guys are awesome.

Recommended: Thomas Fogarty Winery
It’s the beginning of the wedding season – and Thomas Fogarty Winery is a wonderful venue with breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay. I’ve said it again and again – the background is extremely important to a good photograph. This image, one of my favorites, is taken amid the rustic wine country landscape. I recommend other partners and friends in my For Photographers and For Brides sections.
