Neighbors and Lighting

So, I just inherited a Beauty Dish (it's a light modifier like a softbox) from my good friend Ben De Rienzo, who is a awesome photographer. I really have not spent much time working with them on shoots. So I pulled the beauty dish out of my car and did a little cosmetic repair and beautification to the inside of it. I set it up outside hoping the neighbor kids, who were playing outside, would want to take some photos with me. They initially, like most people, were not sure of it, but all i had to get was one of the kids to agree. That is exactly what happened, one of the kids was brave enough to let me take his photo first and thats all it took. By the time we were finished, I was letting the kids take photos of each other. We had a blast. Not only did I get to test my new light, I got to have fun with the neighbor kids and get some sweet photos.

Scenic Heights Part 2

When I was first talking with the band I had a idea for a group shot and that ended up being the basis for the shoot. This is really the first time I have ever done anything like this and i am super happy with the result. My idea was for the band to be on a hill at night with a city under fog below and stars in the the sky. After about three days in Photoshop and a lot of trial and error, I feel like I have made my vision a reality.

LumberJack & Jill Wedding Shower Photobooth

Last week I went to my very first wedding shower. Don't worry, I was not the only guy, it was a couples shower. I was there with my photobooth taking pictures. My friend Trish, who owns Frilly Milly Events, styled the party and part of the styling was a photobooth. The theme of the party was "Enchanted Forest" but Trish came up with a name that better described it, "LumberJack and Jill." It was a fun night of flannel and mustaches.

If you are interested in more of what Frilly Milly does, check out Trish's blog.

Scenic Heights

Right now I'm finishing up photos for the band Scenic Heights. They drove from Alabama to spend the day with me and Stoney for their first band photo shoot. We had a full and fun day of photography. We started the day in my kitchen and ended with a beautiful view of nashville during sunset. I ended up doing another series of Black & White photos and they turned out amazing, they always seem to. I know I have said this in the past, but I think they will be a consistent style of photos I take. I have more photos and will post them when they are finished.
