I am really excited...

...about this new blogging feature. Now I can share stories from my shoots! I can also share ideas and ask opinions, etc.

 

I think I've just finished the final touches on Kim's Bonnie and Clyde couple shoot. I still plan on editing a few of my favorites for the site, but I have finished the five that she ordered.

 

I plan on taking a break from Kim and Brian to edit a few pictures taken a couple days later. I haven't even started editing those yet. One set is from a shoot I was invited to. My good friend, Steve Gray, invited me on this shoot http://stevegray.zenfolio.com/p815802151 where he shot Mary in front of some graffiti. It was a fun and interesting shoot. The snow was in the process of melting, so it was very muddy. Of course, I wore shoes that I wouldn't mind getting muddy -- which also happen to have hardly a tread on the bottom. As we were walking to the cars, I slipped and fell in the mud. :-/

Steve had his photos already retouched and posted online in like a day. I'm just now starting on them. Last week was a busy week for me, and it was second in queue.

 

Third in queue is a shoot of the viking. I have already shot him a few times, first when we dated and I only had natural light and was using my Canon 40D http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150190555500268&set=a.425902260267.366145.575455267&type=3&theater and the second time for my photojournalism class when I used one off camera flash and my Canon 60D http://elizabethstayer.zenfolio.com/p600983041/h17b629fc#h17b629fc. I decided to employ the use of my second flash, some colored gels, and my wide-angled lens to see if I could make the images pop a bit more this time. I think I accomplished some good shots, but I also think the photos are a bit repetitive. I am a little disappointed in myself for not being able to think outside of my previously established box. Perhaps, when I get the photos edited, you can tell me whether you think I'm right or not.

After I shot the viking, he expressed an idea to me. I had brought along Kathy, http://elizabethstayer.zenfolio.com/p111832192/h14c176b2#h14c176b2, and his idea was to put his furs on her and have her shot like a shaman. I thought this was a great idea, so we made it so. Those are fourth in queue. She only agreed to do it if she could take pictures of me. So, I obliged. http://elizabethstayer.zenfolio.com/p27404907/h38eb53b7#h38eb53b7 I edited my favorite one and posted it here, so I could use it as my artist's bio picture for the art show I am going to be in this May. -- Probably more on that later.

 

Well, this is an extensive first blog post, so I'm going to finish it now and get back to editing photos!
