Hot Pick of the Week!

Every week picks a dozen photos from the hundreds submitted every week. This picture was chosen as a HOTPICK of the week by the editors of Samsung of America's website. This photograph was taken at the park in Kenansville NC.

Love is in the Air!

I had a chance to work with Jadie and Jeremy who live near Raleigh, NC. They are getting married in October and decided to have some engagement photos done on the NC State campus. It was really hot and we did find a few cool shady spots for some portraits. Luckily there weren't many students around, so we had access to the whole campus. My wife and I ended up eating lunch with them after the photo shoot. They are just a really nice down to earth couple!

Spinning About

Speaking of Spinning....I am recovering from a weekend of being sick. It seems some food didnt quite agree with me. Anyway, I was feeling good enough on Sunday to take the kids to the park and I got a really neat shot of Isabelle with my new Tokina 11-16mm f 2.8 lens. The spin blur was done totally in-camera and some color tweaks in photoshop. I also had time this weekend to work with textures. These are my first two attempts at the whole fad. I also got some new white tileboard for the studio, by my house, here in Warsaw, NC. As you can see the white boards give off a nice diffused reflection.
