I came across this article today and just had to share it. As much as I love what I create with my digital camera, it’s really about the end result — what you can put on your wall or on your table — that matters the most.
Printing Digital Photographs
I’m in the midst of a love/hate relationship with my off-camera flash. I love experimenting with some new photo techniques that emerge from this type of photography; I absolutely cannot STAND not fully knowing how to use it. Today, this silly thing simply WOULD NOT FIRE on command. I tried standing closer to it, tried putting the camera right next to the flash – you name it – but the temperamental thing just wouldn’t behave. I was trying to snag a shot for today’s #CY365 challenge, which was “Speed,” or “Fast.” Zach (in his new black cast) was kind enough to do some running towards me to get this shot. But it took many, many takes in order to even get close. This isn’t quite the finished image I had in mind, but the ol’ flash wouldn’t behave properly. Ah well, I’ve much to learn. Guess that’s why I’m doing this challenge in the first place!
It’s been forever since I’ve entered an “I Heart Faces” challenge … So nice to connect with this group again!
I’ve never been an event photographer, per se, but I couldn’t resist when one of my dearest friends asked me to take photos at her daughter’s birthday party. The girls were having a fantastic time jumping around, playing with props, showing off cheerleading skills and generally being silly. There was, however, this one very brief moment when all the girls were strategizing their next pose, and I happened to sneak a quick photo of this darling girl just waiting to hear from her friends what was next. I love, love love the colors in this shot and the way she is framed between her buddies. I may have to look into this event photography thing a little bit more, afterall!
Happy 2nd Birthday, CY365! So in honor of the photo inspiration site’s birthday, they have posted a “doubles” challenge, asking for photos to incorporate the theme of pairs or the number two. Well, I’ve got a pair here: a pair of cousins who I happened to capture this weekend as a surprise for my mother. This weekend was my mom’s 60-cough-cough-somethingth birthday, and all she really wanted (all she ever wants!) were photos of her family. So somehow I managed to wrangle the four cousins into position and convinced them to do a full modeling event. They were amazing. The hardest thing I had to do was narrow down my favorites. This diptych setup didn’t make it to my mom’s final set, but I sure loved it! Happy birthday all around, yes?
It’s a very, very little-known fact that from time to time, I will take boudoir-style photos for friends of mine. Now I say “style” because what we do is quite tame. Really, the idea is to capture beautiful, soft and romantic images to make women feel stunning and occasionally give a sweet treat to their men.
A lovely friend of mine wanted a few Valentine’s pics to share with her hubby, and we had the best time taking these shots. I hope she understands how gorgeous she really is … Just one look at this photo and anyone can see that it’s true.
