Fun with flash

The fun thing with a small flash is that there are many options as to what you want it to do. This photo would be completely different if it was shot with an on-camera standard flash. however, i placed it at a right angle to me, zoomed the flash head as far as it would go, and popped it at about 1/8th power. the good thing with zooming the flash head is that you get a much more focused beam of light. If it was shot with just a wide flash, it would not look nearly as cool.

I went to the zoo up in omaha with my mother a few days ago. I love that zoo. This was the fifth year in a row that I have gone with my mom to the zoo. I have to say that looking at apes or monkeys is the best part.

This is a photo of my mom complaining that i never put up a good photo of her.

the ghost kid

Here is a photo from a wedding reception a little while back. i have had to do some heavy post-processing to get this to close to what i would like it to be, but i still think it is not that strong of an image. i just really liked the ghosted kid passing by.

shooting receptions down at the train depot in the haymarket can be a bit of a challenge. it is dark, very dark, and there are not many good backgrounds. but, i love a challenge. is this a great image? i would argue not, but i do not feel that it is a bad image.

Hooray for sports!

fun in the sun

Played some croquet with some friends a few weeks back. Sombreros will add fun to anything, from photos to lawn games. Also, i found out that kittens love cameras. or camera bags, at the least.
