In anticipation of two portrait sessions this weekend (as gifts to friends), my wife Lindsey was kind enough to allow me to use her for practice in front of my new seamless white background.  No retouching to the photos–minor color correction & a fancy frame from Photoshop.

 

doesn’t she look great!

Some recent shoots

Yes, i’m still slacking. But take heart that fewer blog posts means that i’m getting more photography work, so that’s a good thing. Here are a couple of shots from the past weeks.

First is of Dan, an organizer/trainer for the richmond-area marathon & 10k training teams. Met him at 7am (!) last saturday to get some shots before he and his team started their run. I’m really happy with the way this one turned out–thanks to Dan for standing still enough for my concept to work!

And this is Leslie of om mama yoga–yoga classes for women with child. She (and the patient moms-to-be) allowed me to invade her class last week to get a few shots for the story. i don’t know much about yoga or being pregnant, but it seemed like a good thing to be doing.

more to come…

Spanish for “slacker”

I know, it’s been about a year since my last post. Or it seems like it, at least. But September was busy! As the pic above shows, we spent some time in Spain (my first trip to Europe). We visited the cities of Madrid, Barcelona, and Sevilla, and had an amazing time. Already wanting to go back.

September was professionally busy, as well. Had a full plate of assignments for the latest issue of WORK Magazine, plus a corporate shoot for Smarter Interiors. So while there hasn’t been much action on the blog, away from the computer it’s been hectic. I’ll put up some shots from the issue later this week.

Assignments are starting to roll in for the next issue of Sports Backers Quarterly, so I’m looking forward to those opportunities. Always a challenge to be original with these shots of athletes, so we’ll see what happens.
