And what better way to celebrate the second day of my baby being back than by posting some pics from tonight’s youth service at church? I have a secret in store for tomorrow’s blog post so hopefully these couple of pics will hold you over!!
As always, enjoy!!
I didn’t realize how much I missed my camera until it was gone and back. I forget it’s like a lung to me!!
I took a few pics tonight but here are the two I’d like to share.
As always (:D), Enjoy!!!!
Of family pictures from church that is!! I’m stoked!!
Enjoy!!!! (As always!)
Sorry so little talking today.
I’ve done a lot of high key product shots in the past and have never really dabbled in low key photos… that is until I tried to shoot fire against a white background with multiple light sources and no gobos. What a pain!!
I thought I’d give some shots a chance recently and figured I’d post up the results… This is black foam core being used as a base surface and rear black backdrop. (though only as a backup as I used my directional lighting to control fall off). Yes, I do realize that only ONE of these pics will look truly lowkey. I have a second but it’s not getting posted today…
On to the pics!!
I hope you liked the pics!! (I know they didn’t include people like I usually do. I need to get out more!)
So yeah, I’ve been giving thanks all day about all kinds of things but last night I went out and gave myself a reason to give some extra thanks lol. I bought one of these… (matchbox car for size reference of Roku and the 46″ monster lol)
On the recommendation of a friend I also ordered Season One of a show called Eureka. If it’s anything like my friend described, it should be a pretty awesome show.
I leave my blog post with a self portrait I just did with my fisheye. I haven’t busted that sucker out in a while but here she is about four inches from the mirror lol:
As a photographer, you’ve gotta challenge yourself at times to stay on your A-game. One of the ways to do that is to look at other photographer’s techniques and mimic them. Then you get to learn some nifty tricks about lighting. I didn’t nail these perfectly but then again when you’re using a magazine cover as a gobo and a magazine subscription card as a snoot, you can’t expect perfection lol. I tried though.
Yeah, the different colored jackets is one of those small details that I just went with because of what was available lol. The light isn’t QUITE as concentrated on the face as I shot it but my space to shoot in was extremely limited so I couldn’t move my main snooted light back any further. The background light is a single SB600 pointed at the back wall. Both flashes were triggered with cheapo RF602s from china
This second light study was from a strobist posting…
Looking at this one in retrospect, I really missed it lol. I’ll try it again later lol.
A couple of them to be exact (and correct my own title lol).
Today, the LiT leaders went upstairs with video-master J. Kisser to make a sweet set of videos for the kids. Here are some pics from the video shoot.
(who was dumb enough to give me the boom mic??)
(when did I get smart enough to grab my 11-16 while I held the boom!? lol)
That’s all I could get as a photographer/grip. Holding the boom mic meant no shots while any filming was going on and none of me while filming an announcement with Pastor applejacks. *sigh*. Maybe next time RJ will get there sooner since he’s taller than I am.
Yessir, as one of my hobbies overlaps another, there is an inevitable set of pictures created.
Photography + Motorcycling = my most recent set of pictures.
Here are a couple pictures from that set. The whole set can be found HERE.
Overall it was a productive meet. A lot of hot dogs and brauts were eaten. Maybe even some of the kids mac-n-cheese lol. Good times
This is half of what motorcycling is all about. If you own a bike and never work on it, I IMPLORE you to take your hand to a wrench. It’s rewarding like nothing else

So in celebration of my 29th year of life on this wonderful third rock from that blazing ball of helium in the sky, I pulled the trigger on a new lens.
WHOOO DOGGY is she a PERTY lens!!!
That’s right… via UPS right now there is a Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 AF-S/G/ED/N lens on the way to my hands!! Two pounds of professional goodness all waiting to unlock the range of photos that I usually capture via “foot zoom”.
CAN YOU TELL I’M EXCITED!!!!
My next two posts will feature a few blogs and photographers that I respect heavily
