The night life

Mr. Harvey Ranola and I decided to do a little late night shooting on top of a parking garage a couple of weeks ago. It was a fun experience and the first photo shoot I had done in a few weeks. I really wanted to try and utilize the low light that is available on top of that garage. I did have to bust out the flash, though on the shots near the ledge, but I put a red filter on it. This diffused the light and when converting to grayscale, red seems to do better. I don't know if there is any science to that, but that's what seems to happen to me. By diffusing the light enough i was able to capture the ambient light of the city.

A look into the future... from 1981

Las Vegas Sun staffer, Kyle Hansen showed this to me. Very funny.

I uploaded this to Ireporter on I am not exactly thrilled about it at the moment, but I just wanted to get something up quick. It is kind of long, but I had so much good audio. I even left one interview out. I hope to have a soundslide version of this up soon, with the other interview.

Its been way too long

Since school let out for the winter break, I have just turned off my brain. My daily routine has consisted of me stumbling my way to work, working, stumbling my way home and doing it all over again. I have gotten away to the beach a few times, and spent wonderful time with the girlfriend, but alas I have taken no real photos. I haven't written anything worth a darn. I haven't done much with this down time. I'm even slacking on editing photos that I shot this past semester.

School is about two weeks away, and with such a full semester ahead of me, I won't have any time to work on any personal projects. I hope I can get motivated. Anyways, I know that I have neglected this blog too. I hope to start another blog, which would focus more on my writing. But I can hardly keep up with this one.

Here is a photo I gave my sister for Christmas, from her wedding in September. I figure if I was going to post something I need to have a pic. I really like this photo; it was a great location, my favorite time of day and it was really their first quite moment as a married couple. in most of the photos before and after this i was using a fill flash but I really liked how this one came out.

I don't really tint my photos, but I felt it worked for this picture. I hope to shoot more weddings this season and this is definitely a portfolio picture.
