What nice teeth you have!

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

Yesterday in the studio I did a shoot for a dentist website. We used actual patients who had work done as our models. We also had my favorite make-up artist Nicole Wagner in the studio. I love working with Nicole. She is so good at what she does. We wanted the photos to have fun feel, not a standard boring headshot, more like the models were just having a conversation and oh by the way have super nice teeth and I think we accomplished that.

Engagement Session at the Rose Festival

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

I’ve always thought it would be fun to shoot some portraits at a carnival, so when Erik called up and said they wanted to do engagement photos at the Rose Festival, I was all over it. We had to reschedule once when the fun center shutdown due to a nasty storm, but the next day it was perfect. Still a little cool and possibly rainy so the crowds were small, making my job much easier. First we rode the carousel, I used a Canon speedlight with a pocketwizard attached and just held it in my left hand to the side on real low power while shooting at a 20th of a second to show motion.

Later on, after winning some prizes and riding the Ferris Wheel, I shot this portrait with a 85mm f1.2 lens @1.2. Once again I used a speedlight and pocketwizard to fill a little light in and make them really pop.

Nice Play

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Shot the Portland Beavers last night. Great game with lots of action, even though the Bevos lost 3-0. The best play was late in the game when Brett Dowdy came in to play 3rd on a double switch. The very next ball was hit to his left and he made a great diving stop and throw to end the inning.
