IMAGES: Model Portrait Shots (first selects)

August 31, 2011

Had a phenomenal photo session with two wonderful models a few weeks back.  I’m still tinkering with the shots, but these were the first two off the presses.  These obviously set a fairly serious “mood”.  There are many others from the set which are much more traditional and/or playful.  I’ll do my best to post more as I get them completed.

IMAGES: Cooling off…

August 8, 2011

Over the weekend, my 16 month old daughter, found endless fun with the backyard hose.  I learned two things from this experience.

1) Despite a house full of toys, kids will always be more intrigued by things like cardboard boxes and water hoses.

2) With a high shutter speed, a toddler swirling a hose around in the air makes for some pretty cool images.

GALLERY: Citrus Classic Hot Air Balloon Festival

August 3, 2011

Despite having an incredibly busy day on Saturday, I opted to get up in the pre-dawn hours on Sunday morning to drive about 30 miles to a Hot Air Balloon festival in Santa Paula.  I have always loved Hot Air Balloons… they’re incredibly beautiful to look at, and so old-worldly in others.  I was privileged enough in my youth to ride in them from time to time and once remember crash landing in a swarm of cacti in the Arizona desert.  Despite that… I still love them.

As the sun crested the small hills to the east of the launching ground, the weather was tenuous, at best.  They let the pilots decide on their own if they would fly, which most of them did.  Unfortunately, at the first sign of rain drops, they pulled everyone down.  This made for some exciting moments as 20 balloons landed within about eight minutes of each other.

Some selects from the day are below (make sure to hit the jump for more) – but the full collection is HERE.
