A random assortment

I have been so busy with so many things it’s hard to keep up. I’m looking back at my folders of images and seeing a whole bunch that I never posted, so, instead of a whole bunch of single posts, I’m just going to throw a big, random assortment up on here.

Melina got married

A few weeks ago my wife’s, cousins…….. oh forget it, lets just say she is part of my family on my wife’s side, got married.  I wasn’t the official photographer for it, but still, it’s family, I can’t go to a wedding and not take any pictures!  So I got a few good shots, leaving the majority of the work to the primary photographer.  Here are a couple of mine:

When I took this picture, this is how I imagined it in my head, but really the blues of the sky were kind of dull and there were no stars, there definitely wasn’t a moon, but I fixed it with some pictures I had taken at other times. I brought up the blue in the sky to brighten it, overlayed some stars, and then added the moon.  I think it turned out pretty good!

I know its a little late, and I’m a little slow at posting these, but better late than never, right?

I took these when the Fall leaves were in full color.  It was a little bit of a challenge because all the yellow everywhere wanted to reflect all the color everywhere, including faces.  Luckily I had a flash and softbox with me to help compensate for it.  IMG_2763 IMG_2773 IMG_2811 IMG_2812

This one makes me laugh.  When I take pictures I use my monkeys to get people to laugh. It works too, not just for the kids, but adults too.  I can’t tell you how many engagement sessions I have done that the monkeys have made the difference between a fake “cheese” smile, and a real smile!
