My boyfriend, Jimi, and I like to tour on our bikes. I have just uploaded new images from a tour we did of the Upper Peninsula in Michigan during the summer of 2011 and I can’t fit one into a category at this point so I’m posting to the ol’ blog.
So I took some senior pictures near Paris, MO a few weeks ago and thought I’d post a few of them. The area is beautiful and I was really excited to have so many elements to play with in such a small area.
When there is a photo that I like or I think the client will like I give them a color copy, a black and white copy and a desaturated copy as well. The first and last photos are desaturated and people seem to really like that although it goes against my photojournalism background to edit like this.
So I dropped in on this blog and realized it has been almost a whole year since I have posted anything. Considering everything I have been up to this is pretty much unacceptable. In the photo world I have an exhibit at The Vault in Mexico, MO and will be judging a photo competition later this month. I was offered a job at the National Guard as a photographer and laid off before I was even able to get one day in.
But, the biggest change in my life since my last post is centered around this fine looking fellow. Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to Jimi.
We got a little lost on the way up, but found the original Batcave…..
I’m lucky enough to have an amazing artist for a brother. The most recent benefit from this is that I got to go to a two day gaming convention called Blizzcon and witness an entirely new world. It was great.
I started out working with a flash, but I eventually decided that Blizzard was trying to create a feel with the the dark atmosphere and a very small amount of bright light sources, so I put my fixed 50mm on and went with it.
