I recently had the chance to shoot my first band promo shoot. If you are in southern Indiana and need an awesome band for your event, reception or whatever you should take a look at Second Day Romans. They are on of the best bands in the area.
One of my best friends asked me to do some family pics for him, and once again I got pulled out into the cold windy Indiana winter weather....Even tho it was crazy cold and crazy windy we still were able to get some nice images. This was the first shoot I done with my new to me 5D....thats right, full frame goodness...I also discovered the beauty that is the 200 2.8L as a portrait lens...Sure you have to be a mile back from your subject and it makes it a little harder to shoot, esp without an assistant, but WOW is it worth it!!!
Normally I detest shooting outdoors during the winter, but a friend of mine who is a wedding planner wanted me to do some pictures of her daughter and fiancee' so away we went all over town in the cold shooting pictures. As soon as we pulled into the first location and I started pulling out gear I realize I had forgotten my radio triggers for off camera flash...great! lol... So I had to improvise with a 550ex on camera...
So between wedding gigs, I usually scare up a little portrait work. Just so happens a friend of mine had a baby and since I needed some really good newborn pics for my port I gave her a session as a gift. By the time I was actually able to schedule a setting with him, he was already a couple weeks old, but still pretty darn cute. So easy to work with, slept thru it all and never fussed..Got to love a newborn shoot that goes like that...
My apologies for the long absence from my blog...Life has been hectic and not a whole lot of photography was being done over the winter...Just to do some catch up I will post a few of the sessions and weddings I have done since my last post. The weekend after Thanksgiving we shot the Kidd/Young wedding. Talk about a fun couple to work with!! Probably the most fun I have had shooting a wedding yet!
