Smoke on the Water

My Daughter and a Balloon

I had an early shoot at Piedmont Park and brought my daughter along to assist me.
While scouting out locales I managed to get a few of her without too much protesting.
She has joined the Camera Club at Mill Creek High School. This is the first REAL interest she has shown toward using a "big" camera and as you can expect I am SUPER excited. I am handing down my D50 to her to learn with. I am hoping I will have a new photog in the family.

For the love of Prime

I have this wonderful little lens. It is an 85mm f/1.4 prime lens. It was a gift. There is a very special story behind this gift that is very personal to the man who gave it to me so I will not elaborate as to why I recieved such an amazing gift but I am doing my best to give justice to the reason for it.

Those who know me well know I am pretty blind without my glasses. This lens is manual focus. This is the ONLY reason I have not used it much since I first received it. I decided to use it on the Engagement shoot I did last month and rediscovered why this is "THE" portrait lens. period. I decided to shoot only with it at the last APG model shoot. Here are the magical headshots taken with that lens from the other night.

Disc Stalker

18 holes of Golf
Frisbee Golf that is
And yes some are in the woods
it's not as easy at it looks
These were taken at the newly opened Alexander Park which is part of the Gwinnett County Park system located in Lawrenceville, Ga. Visit Disc Stalkers which is close by off Sugarloaf Parkway. Dave owns the place and he is VERY knowledgeable when it comes to all things "disc". He also will have some of my photographs relating to this sport on display shortly.

In "loving" color

These are untouched, S.O.O.C (straight out of the camera) just resized for web. I had the best time shooting these and look forward to working with them in October for the big engagement party in New York.
