New Backdrops

I received two new backdrops in the mail this week, both 10 feet in width(One is solid black, the other snow white.) I will be using friends and family as guinea pigs for lighting tests, so look out. The backdrops should be alot of fun to work with since they are paper and wont have any wrinkles to iron out. Maybe next week, Ill post some of the test shots that I take. Well, sorry this week is so short on photo info. Isabelle's birthday party is tommorow and my parents are coming today, so Ive gotta keep the house clean. Speaking of guinea pigs, I took this shot two years ago, while trying to copy the nikon lighting manual example shots. The rimlight is ultra strong, but I loved the two catchlights on the glass. My son Max looks way too old in this shot. See ya next week, Kirk

I had a shoot this week with a couple who wanted a family portrait. Everything was ready to go and the couple sat down and tried to get the young toddler to sit on their laps. He would do anything but sit down. The couple was very patient and after about a half an hour he sat down for maybe a couple of seconds. I managed to get a couple decent shots. We had been shooting indoors and thought we might have better luck outside. A change of scenery was just what the doctor ordered. The boy was much more willing to work with us outside and we finished with plenty of good shots. It just reminded me that as a parent and a photographer I need to have patience in everything I do. Ill leave you this week with a shot(that took alot of patience to get) of my daughter Isabelle and her scrunchie face pose.
I want to thank GOD for the opportunity to be involved in photography. He has blessed me more than I ever could have imagined.

See you next week, Kirk

For now Ill leave you with a picture from a trip I took to the Poconos in PA just a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy! Kirk
