I finally made time to do a quick processing job on a few pictures from my light modifier tests. The goal was to get something acceptably post processed very quickly.
The woman who has modeled in several of my recent photo shoots asked if I could teach her how to use her own camera better so we set up a photography lesson. I really enjoy teaching and photography so this was a treat for both of us.
The usual photo suspects gathered for our first photo walk in the downtown area of Jacksonville. In-the-moment photography is a weakness of mine and I looked forward to the immediacy of everything. We set a time limit of about 15 minutes per location and I further limited myself to only using my 16mm lens.
None of these pictures are going to be award winners but it was a fun exercise.
A few weeks ago our church had an Egyptian marketplace as part of our VBS program. One of my friends took the opportunity to set up an animal stall there, which led to me photographing two costumed friends holding a snake. Please enjoy.
PS It is kinda like photographing a kid. Snakes don’t stay still and are determined to go where you don’t want them.
In this post I will compare all of my speedlight light modifiers. I plan to use it as a quick reference sheet available from any online device (I think being able to pull this up on my phone could be handy). You can find links to get specifications or purchase these modifiers on my photo gear page.
Most people have heard of putting your best foot forward, but did you realize that you have a best side too? In particular I’m talking about your face. It is extremely rare to find people whose face is so symmetrical that there is no discernible difference when each side is viewed in profile. One eye is higher. An eyebrow follows a different curve. The corner of one side of a mouth drops more.
I finally found a two friends with an interest in photography that are willing to be photographed and they have free time! Whoooopppieee!!!!!!!
I’m just getting around to processing some pictures I took when we visited a state park with some friends.
