Today’s photography is of a photograph. My fiancee’s and my engagement photos were delivered to us by Ron Soliman in this beautiful “leather” framed DVD case. Inset on the cover is a small print out of one of our photographs.
I highly recommend Ron if you are in need of a wedding or event photographer. His services have been worth every penny so far. Reach out to me or leave a comment below if you want to know more.
I decided to break out the soft box tonight while playing ball with Mela. I was fiddling around with all sorts of angles this evening, trying to get something a little bit different than I captured in the past with Mela and her ball. I really like how this shot came out. The catch light in Mela’s eye is perfect at making it look alive. My mind likes to predict Mela’s facial expression which is hidden behind the ball. Like the title of the photograph says, “Go on, I Dare Ya”!
I shot this type of jewelry box concept a while back during the project (7-28: Creativity In a Box). Because I was tired and in a rush to get today’s photograph, I revisited the jewelry box, but this time with the macro lens.
I loved how these flowers looked sitting in their vase by our front door. I decided to set up my trusty flower photo station in the kitchen and use the macro lens to try to capture their brilliant colors. I did not notice this grouping of three pink flowers while shooting the frame. However, when I was post processing the picture, I opted for a tight crop on the grouping once I noticed it.
I thought I would not have a picture at all for today when I first looked at the digital negatives. Luckily, the noise reduction algorithms in Lightroom 3 saved me. Even though every single one of my exposures was significantly underexposed, I was able to increase the exposure and compensate for the additional noise using out of the box Lightroom 3 functionality. Thanks Adobe for such a quality product!
My brother was slicing some pepperoni this afternoon so that we could put it on our left over pizza for lunch. I thought there was an interesting picture there somewhere. I used the 50mm lens with the widest aperture possible in so that I did not have to use flash.
I know I am WAY behind at this point in posting all the pictures from the Photo365 project. I assure you that all of the pictures have been taken. Slowly they are making their way up onto Flickr and then onto the project blog here.
This picture of one of my nieces was taken back in April. It feels like forever ago. It was an extremely mild April afternoon when I was in New Jersey visiting for the weekend. My nieces was outside playing with some bubbles with the new family dog, Sofie, so I decided to join the two of them and take some pictures. This is one of my favorites from the whole weekend.
Typically when you walk by a vending machine in the Philadelphia region you see a variety of Tastykake snacks to indulge on. However, in this particular frozen foods vending machine items such as this BIG AZ BubbaTwins are available for purchase. Are we certain that is appropriate for a nationwide corporation work environment?
A few coworkers and I took a trip to Atlantic City again this evening. I had some pretty good luck at the blackjack tables tonight. On the way out, the casino across the parking lot caught my eyes. I mean, how could it not? The whole building appears to be an electronic billboard!
