I now have pictures posted on a stock photography website. Danny's old roommate visited us last weekend and is also into photography. I have to thank Dan and Emily for telling me about stock photography.
I only have two pictures up right now, but these pictures are officially for sale. I will have more posted soon.
I would love any feedback/discussion about stock photography or about my pictures.
Once again, it's been a busy couple weeks. I was in Texas last week from Wednesday to Sunday to celebrate Robyn's 50th birthday and Father's Day and also to see family and friends. We had a great party on Thursday night at my Mom's apartment with a random mix of friends and Robyn's surprise party Saturday night at Avanti's (I will post pictures soon). I got back late Sunday night.
Tuesday night we went to see the Puppini Sisters at B.B. King (will post pictures soon) and then last night we went to the Kitano Hotel to see Roni Ben-Hur play. The moral of this story is that I have several new post to come with pictures from my trip and the show.
My goodness, I cannot believe 3 weeks have past since my last post. This past week was packed full of fun-filled events, one being my first official photo shoot. I had been talking with Dennis and Darien for several weeks about doing a photo shoot. They both needed publicity photos for their up-coming concert and Darien needed head shots. We planned to shoot outside on Saturday, but the weather was too unbearable. Instead, we settled for a well-light hallway and a silver door.
I had a very different connection and experience with both Dennis and Darien. This was a bit of a surprise to me, since we are all such good friends. We would shoot for 20-30 minutes, take a break, and then continue shooting. I felt that the pictures became stronger every time we came back to shoot.
Overall, I'm very happy with how the pictures turned out. I feel the pictures captured the individual personalities of Dennis and Darien. I would have liked some of the pictures to be a little crisper, but that could have been due to shooting indoors without a light meter. I am very excited to see were this next step in photography will take me. Thanks to Dennis and Darien for being patient with me and taking such great pictures! And thanks to my fantastic assistant for the day, Mr. Danny Stone!
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the shoot:
