Yesterday I had the opportunity to shoot some Sr Pictures with Alexis. She chose downtown Fort Worth so we met up and shot for a couple of hours. Alexis is a Sr at Saginaw High School and is a lot of fun.
We found the one spot of green grass and got this cool shot. Reminds me of a perfume ad.
The shot above was my favorite from the day. I like the sun hitting the street and the "negative" space to the right of the photo.
Alexis did an awesome job and made this shoot really fun.
So I'm really excited to write this blog entry. I've taken a little time off to recharge my photography batteries, but I'm back and ready to shoot!
Yesterday I had the opportunity to participate in the Star Telegram Bridal show and I met a lot of nice couples and their families. In 2013 I'm going to try something a little different, I'm calling it a Photo Test Drive.
It's basically a chance for a couple to get to kick the tires and see how they look when I photograph them. No contract is required, it's a two hour photo-shoot and you get to keep all of the photos. All for only $200. And if you choose me to photograph your wedding after the engagement shoot (and I'm hoping you will), the $200 becomes your deposit on a wedding package.
Here are a few of my favorite shots. I hope you like them and contact me to discuss a date for your engagement shoot.
I finally got to shoot in a field another field I see all of the time. It's a corn field on I35 West in Fort Worth. My friend Sam braved the heat to come out and shoot with me. I think it was 101'. She did a great job.
I shot these with one of my Einstein lights and a beauty dish. This light is so powerful I didn't have any trouble overpowering the sun.
I've been taking a break from photography. Just refocusing after a bunch of studio shooting. Anyways, I drive past this field everyday leaving my house and coming home. Allie agreed to come over from North Dallas to shoot with me and we had a great shoot.
This is something different than I usually do. This is a composite image. I took a photo with my shoot with Nash and placed her on a background I took later on. There's a lot more to it than that, but it all worked out to a cool image.
Usually I like to be behind the camera, but a few people have pointed out that there aren't any photos of me on my website. My friend Kelly came by the studio and helped me take these photos. I think I'll stay behind the camera but these turned out well
I usually don't have lights in my pictures much less bare strobes, but the picture felt like it needed something different. The smaller camera with the silver on it is my dad's old Canon AT-1. As a kid I was always interested and amazed by this camera.
This Mamiya is extremely heavy. It's a 6x7 medium format film camera. It's a lot of fun to shoot, but it takes practice to get right. I usually only shoot black and white in it.
Another shot with some softboxes. This setup is how I shoot a lot of my pictures. I like how the lights distinguished the subject from the background.
