New rooms available

My parent’s are good and moved into their new home.  I went up not long ago and took some pictures of my parent’s new home.  They recently had it built, and have been loving it.  I admit I’m way jealous of the home.  Weather is beautiful, feels like your camping all the time, and the house is great.  Here’s a few pics of the home.  I did a lot of setup on these, all were taken with ambient light.  Large windows provided plenty of light for these shots.

Moving forward with old content

I’ve been working on some older photographs lately.  Stuff I took a long time ago but never got around to editing.  I’ve been going back and working on them (I felt kind of bad for never giving the model any pictures) and the practice has been good I think.

I’m always trying to find ways to improve my portraits in shooting and in post.  I can see where I need to improve things and try to get better with each shoot.  Its time to invest in some reflectors methinks and use those to shoot with. (this may take some time to get this investment unfortunately)  And I have been working on my post methods quite a bit.  Here are some of the shots I am working on recently.  Some of these shots have been reworked as well.  As I improve in my post techniques I have a tendency to want to go back and work on some of my older stuff to see the difference.  Or to just look at it with a new eye.

Starting Over

With the accidental death of my webpage and previous blog, I decided to try a new blog, that can work more like a website.  At least for right now.  I’ll probably get back into making another webpage, but man, after putting so much into the last one only to have it disappear….  Ugh.  And here I go preaching about backups to everyone else.  Never dawned on me to backup my website or blog.

So here is my first post.  I’ll update this post in a bit to include my old, old blog for older pictures.  But to start off here are some of my favorites I did for a family recently.
