On Saturday morning, Elle and I held the second Writers' Day. We hosted eight of the project's writers for portraits at the studio.
Saturday's weather was excellent so, rather than using our indoor studio and exclusively artificial lights, we used the outdoor setting outside the studio and limited artificial lighting to photograph each of our writers.
I continue to be amazed and delighted at the writing background and accomplishments of our wonderful volunteer writers! As an example, Michele Weiner-Davis, MSW has written seven books on divorce and saving marriages. She has made appearances on such shows as Oprah, 48 Hours, 20/20, The Today Show, CBS This Morning, CBS Evening News, CNN and Bill O'Reilly. Her work has been featured in major newspapers such as the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Wall Street Journal, and magazines such as Time, Redbook, Ladies Home Journal, Essence, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Woman's Day, Men's Health, New Woman, and McCalls.
Michele wrote about Cassie Gedbaw, the CU student that is so heavily involved with activities in support of the homeless.
Here is Michele's portrait from this Saturday's session.
