Photo of the day...

Here's one I'm getting blown up to a 24 by 30 for my basement. It's not posting quite as pretty as it looks in Photoshop for some reason, but i love this photo of my little girl!

Just one...

Just one for now. I don't have much to say, my dryer broke and I'm behind on laundry. You should see how much laundry I have piled up. It's a mountain, not even kidding! I just saw my parents this weekend, we watched the whole Lord of the Rings trilogy, they had never seen it. My dad hated it, my mom loved it! More later!

Thought I'd update and answer a few questions...

Here are a few recent (tonight) photos i took. I've had quite a few people email me asking about studio lighting and thought I would just let those who are interested in learning in on what I ended up buying. I got 1 alienbee 800 and a giant softbox that attatches too it. That sits on camera left and a giant silver reflector camera right. I have a Canon 5D and a 50mm 1.2 lens that I use. If anyone has any other questions, feel free to post them below. It's been a really fun learning process and I'm loving it just as much as natural light! I know I never post a whole lot, I always feel so guarded with what I write on the internet, so I apologize to anyone out there who is looking for more words with my posts, but I'm always willing to share information and I appreciate others who share as well. If you are a seasoned veteran with your lights and have any suggestions for me, please leave a comment, I'd love to hear it and if you are in the learning faze like I am, let me know that too, maybe we can help each other!

One cute baby

I'm ordering a 24 by 30 of this one, I love it! I took these with my studio lighting along with a giant softbox. I'm really enjoying the lights, and I love that I get such a similar look to natural lighting. I think What I enjoy doing the most is photographing babies and children. Here's a few more... I used my Colorful kick action with these, it works great with my studio shots as well.
