About the Book
This book is the creative genius of Jordan aka "Betsy". It is a picture study of the good times and friendship with her best friend Kelly aka "flo". These two girls really know how to enjoy life and share their friendship with you through somewhat silly photos and song lyrics. Jordan adds her special pallet of colors and photoshop manipulations to create some "AMAZING!" images you'll have to see. The book is expressive, silly, heartfelt and intimate as it portrays a perspective of a thirteen year old girl's world.
I've been involved in photography as an art for over thirty years. In high school, I was influenced by a photography teacher who instilled the purist principles of Edward Weston and Ansel Adams. I developed advanced skills in visualizing the tonal range of a setting and capturing images with available light. In the darkroom I experimented with a variety of chemical and temperature techniques for both film and print processing. At the University of Florida, my conservative and traditional perspective on photography as a visual medium was challenged by the thinking and works of Jerry Uelsmann, one of the early masters of photomontage, and guest lecturers like Robert Heineken (UCLA) whose montages embedded commercial erotica in highly unconventional images. Today my photography focuses on people - fashion, beauty, glamour, and fine art nudes.
