It’s been way too long since I’ve posted anything new to my site or blog. It’s not that I haven’t been taking any photos but that I tend to fall asleep at my computer as I’m editing them. I thought I’d write a quick post to let everyone know I’m still around and that I plan on posting more often.
I’d like to share a time-lapse video I did over the last year of my little girl. She’s one of the reasons my site updates have been few and far between. Since she was born I took a daily photo of her and then put it into this little video clip.
It’s hard to believe that she’s already past the year mark. Hope you enjoyed the video. Check back later as I promise to start posting more often.
Once again it has been way too long since I last posted a blog entry. I know Valentines was last week but I thought I’d go ahead and share some engagement photos I took last fall. I had fun during this shoot as we hit a variety of places in the Michigan City area. These places ranged from a boat harbor, to a old train depot, to a beach on Lake Michigan. I’ll definitely have to get back to some of these place to shoot again.
So without any further delay here are some of the images from our outing. Let me know what you think and if you have a favorite by leaving a comment below.
Thanks for looking!
A week or so ago I meet up with Elara to get some winter outdoor photos. We had a good time shooting but it was way cold! It was about 16ºF with a wind chill of around 5ºF. (I am sooooo ready for warmer weather) The weather made it hard to get pictures where Elara didn’t look like it was, well… 5ºF out!
I think she did an excellent job especially since she wasn’t wearing a coat/gloves ect most of the time. It took us a couple hours to warm up once we were done but we survived. Here are some of the shots from our outing as we wondered around the city of Elkhart.
Strobist Info: Most of these shots were taken using a Canon 430 ex flash shot through a Lasolite Ezybox using only the inner diffusion panel. (I forgot to pack the outer panel) Triggering system used was the Yongnuo RF-602′s.
Black & white version? Not sure what one I like better.
Thanks for looking!
Its been a while since I’ve posted anything but I guess that’s what the holidays can do to you. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We’ve had family in town visiting us which has been great but I wish I didn’t have to work this week.
I wanted to share some Christmas pictures I took for a family a couple weeks ago. They were great to work with and I had a wonderful time. The boys were pretty motivated to behave during the session so they could get some gum once we were done.
The boys decided to show me where their tummies were.
Thanks to this wonderful family for allowing me to take and use their pictures.
For the past few months I’ve been attending a local “PUG” or Pictage User Group that consists of other photographers from the area.
What is a PUG? Well, below is an except taken from the Pictage website.
The PUGs mission is to facilitate communication and education among professional photographers at a regional level around the nation in order to allow photographers to learn from each other and share experiences.
Pictage User Groups are a way for you to:
- Network and build valuable relationships with other photographers in your local community
- Share expertise with your peers
- Enhance your photography skills and marketing strategies in a learning environment
- Have fun!
So far it’s been great meeting and interacting with other local photographers. The meeting last month was dedicated to working with “Off Camera Flash” and was a blast. We broke off into groups that had 4-5 photographers, a leader who has had a lot experience with off camera flash, and a model to work with. We then all headed out around the town taking different shots and experimenting with the lighting.
The pictures here are of Bamber Marie who was the model who was assigned to our group. Bamber is an aspiring model who likes darker/grungier style of photos. I tried to process the images in a way she would enjoy them and be able to use them for her portfolio.
And one last one.
Thanks for looking. Feel free to check out the photos taken by some of the other photographers at this workshop.
