Growing Up...

I had the opportunity to have a quick session with Carson and his little brother, Carter.  We were kept in the studio as the Utah weather still hasn't made it's permanent turn in to Spring.  It was a fun time and the boys behaved long enough to capture some great frames.

The Basement Strobist: Episode 1

With all my Behind the Scene Strobist and Lighting Videos on YouTube, I have been overwhelmed with emails, comments, and personal messages asking me about the basics of off camera flash photography such as what flashes do I use, what light stands should we buy, and how to trigger flashes wirelessly.

With that said, we created a new web based series geared toward answering viewers' photography and strobist questions.  We affectionately call the series "The Basement" as it is filmed in my basement home-studio.

Take 6 minutes and learn.  I would greatly appreciate your support in this endeavor and spread the word out to all photographers or photo buds you may have and are searching for answers or have technical questions they want addressed in future episodes.

Being Pregnant can be Nice.

The title of this post has the potential to bring out a sleuth of negative emails and and beatings from ladies' purses.  I have no idea what it is like to be pregnant and I never will since I lack the equipment to have a child.
I can say this, that birth is an amazing miracle itself. I witnessed this several times in my past experiences working in EMS.  My father used to tell me during my adolescent years that there is nothing comparable to the bond between a mother and her child; that the love of a mother can't be matched or completely explained.

Maternity photos are a big craze right now. Not all women prefer to have them done, but those who are skeptical or extra conservative on flaunting their belly usually are glad they did it later down the road.

I had the opportunity to have a session with my long time friend Christina and her husband, Mikk.  They are expecting their first child soon. I put them both to work in the studio on recent evening.  See the results after the jump...
