Photos: Night Photography

When it comes to night photography, playing with lights and the shutter speed can be fun. Right now you can buy sparklers, cheap neon lights and other things to create images you wouldn’t be able do in daylight. My favorite effect is the ghost like images.

Photos: Birth and Young Love

A couple who I recently met asked if I would take some maternity photos.  I was excited to hear that her husband was joining the shoot. This would give me a chance to capture the excitement that a first child brings both parents.

Erica requested that we do an in-studio shoot. Since I don’t have one, I transformed my living room in to one. For a maternity shoot, I found it worked better since it gave the couple privacy.

Sometimes when I take pictures, I image what it would be like to see the photos ten years from now. With that in mind, capturing the passion of their youth was important to me.

I did some editing on this shot which gives it a timeless feel.

I love how pretty she came out on this one.

I was happy to hear she liked my creative take on the maternity photos. I think with every shoot I do, I want to create something new and interesting. Most of all I want whoever is in front of my camera to have an experiences they can enjoy.

Congratulations to Eric and Erica. They are having a boy and naming him Matthew.

Movie Scene: I am a Kid

I gave my self a week to film, edit and post a completed movie scene.  Tomorrow I’ll write about the making of, what I learned, and what this scene means.

One thing I will share with you: I have chosen my audience and who I want to delight. I enjoy movies that are honest and full of subtext themes.

Share your thoughts, comments and feel free to critique me. I am doing this to learn 🙂
