Alan Nielsen Weddings & Events. Each milestone with a photograph.


Holy Moly….I haven’t posted in weeks….

So many things have happened since my last post.

I need to review the following books:

Syl ArenaSpeedliter’s Handbook

Zack AriasOneLight Field Guide

Some serious reads in here.  I should probably also talk about Joe McNally’s Hot Shoe Diary, but I did already mention it last year after my trip to Quebec.

I really wish that Syl had made this book about 4 years ago when I started photography.  It is soooo good!  Maybe  a full review once I actually finish the last pages.  Only about 20 to go.

As I mentioned in my last post, I am doing the P90X workout.  It is an incredible workout.  I am now on my recovery week.  Tomorrow is day 1, which is not easy.  It’s the 90 minute Yoga-X workout.  I’ve seen some major improvements already.  I have lost about 15lbs since I started working out in January, but the first 10 came in 2 months and I hit the Plateau.  After 3 weeks on P90X, I’ve lost another 5, but certainly gained some lean muscle as well.  I don’t think I have much more weight to lose as my bodyfat percentage will get lower but I will be gaining lean muscle mass.

I do really recommend this workout for people, but it is not for everyone.  If you can’t get off your butt to workout every day, 6 days a week and you can’t push yourself, then sit this routine out.  You need the personal motivation and direction to watch the videos and put everything you have into them.  If you are just going to take it easy, then save your money.

On the photography front, I did my first official corporate shoot.  It was pretty cool.  Very “grade school” feel.  I had in the executive team and senior management in and out within 1 minute each.  I won’t be posting any pictures, but you may see them on future publications for Anixter Canada.

That’s it for now.
