I had a great time shooting the Kings playing at the Burlington Rotary Ribfest this year.
Maloreigh – the first daughter
Finally got to shoot my oldest daughter. Did about 30 images in about 2 minutes.
Susie – my wife
It’s rare that I am able to capture my own wife. Usually there are children hanging off one of us.
gotta stay cool, my momma never raised no fool
That’s right another Andy Curran quote. Really it’s part two.
Engagement & Wedding Rings
Found this picture in one of my many wedding books.
Desiree in the clouds
Took this shot indoors, but the background was not flattering, so I thought I’d play with the "render clouds" in Photoshop.
Wedding Rings in Cables
The fan on my video card is crapping out, so I have to leave the side of my computer off and "tap" the fan once in a while to keep it quiet. So I thought, let’s take the rings our of the "norm" and put integrate them into some technology.
A few of my favs. Stacked so nicely. I wish I had more time to sit down with them again.
Took the kids and the camera for a walk today. Found this little gem in the batch. Not the best focus or sharpness, but it was too cute.
On the rocks
Got home in time to enjoy some day light. The creek was almost completely frozen over except for a few spots where some fast water was.
Each time I had to move the ring around, I’d move my camera back to the shore, then put it back on the ice and recompose the shot. Got myself a little wet kneeling down on the ice, but didn’t (knock on wood) get anything soaked.
I think I might need to get a neutral density filter. I never thought I’d need one, but I shot at 100 ISO, and had the aperture at f/40.0, just to try and get a slow shutter speed.
Ring shot – Guest book
Another idea for a ring shot tonight. Bounced my flash off a gold piece of bristle board to enhance the color.
Junior Fire Chief – Hayden
He loves his little fireman’s hat. Every night he plays with it for hours. There are all kinds of holes in it now from where he chews through it. We bought him this new sleeper as well, so I had to grab a few shots with him in it and with his favourite hat.
This one also goes out to John Piercy in the HFG! Cheers brother!
Ansel Adams – A few gems
Found these gems at the Reuse Centre in Burlington. Cost $1.00 a piece. Sometimes you just get lucky!
There’s just something about old photography books that I love!
Ring Shot – Marshmallows
Wine Glasses 2
Tried a few angles on this shot. I liked the way the glasses at the back almost look like they’re tipping towards the camera.
Used a Polarizing Filter on my 50mm 1.8 tonight. It reduced the glare in each glass allowing you to see through each one better. I would have liked to try this with the other shot from a few nights ago now!!
Shrove Tuesday 2009
Had pancakes for dinner, because the mornings are WAY too busy. Hayden had a blast.
Rings of the heart
Found some cookie cutters, took some pictures.
Wine Glasses – In a row
Please type “I do”
Another idea for a ring shot.
Everything I do, I do it for you
Fellowship of the Wedding Rings
Had a few new ideas for ring shots that I wanted to try out.
