Photo of the Week

This evening I had the opportunity to shoot a wedding at the Sleepy Ridge Golf Course. It is such a lovely place, if I have time I'll post more shots from this location. The image below was captured at 1/350s @ f/11 at 200iso. I then adjusted the color to my liking, and then you have the photo of the week.

Photo of the Week

For the photo of the week this week we have an oldie but a goody! I'm surprised I haven't posted this image at all. This image I am especially proud of. The exposure, the detail, the smile... The image was shot on a high key background with the use of four lights. The image was shot so long ago that I don't quite recall the settings on the lights. The image was captured at f11 @ 1/125sec at 200iso. Two lights were used to expose the subject (as you can tell in her eyes) and two lights to expose the high key background, most likely set at half power. I then adjusted the color and density to my liking in photoshop and there you go!

Photo of the Week

For the photo of the week we have Tori's senior portrait. The image was shot at the riverwoods in a field behind the movie theater. I shoot there all the time, but it wasn't until recently I noticed a large tree stump at the far end of the field that I can stand on. With the setting sun behind her, my reflector bouncing the light back, and me trying not to fall off the tree stump... you get the photo of the week. :)

Photo of the Week

Wow! Where have I been for the last few months? I'm terribly sorry to any one who follows this blog... all two of you. :)
Below we have the photo of the week. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to shoot Meshel & Dustin's wedding. Their wedding was at Mellor Hidden Meadows in Lehi. I've shot weddings there before, but not with such nice weather & such fun people. Meshel and Dustin react very well in front of the camera, they made my job very easy.
Congratulations Meshel & Dustin! Hope you two have a happy marriage!

Cameron's Senior Portraits

Today I had the opportunity to shoot Cameron's senior portraits. It was fun, although it was quite an effort to get him to smile... if you can call that smiling.

Michael & Tristan

Today I had the pleasure of shooting Michael & Tristan's wedding in Memory Grove. It turned out to be a great day. Not too cloudy and just enough sunlight. My thanks to James and Karen for sending Michael and Tristan my way. It was a very fun shoot!

A Day of Traveling

Today I got to do something I haven't done for a very, very long time. Today I drove a very long distance to the middle of nowhere and then made my way back home, taking portraits of whatever I found interesting. I started in a dry lake bed somewhere 60 miles southwest of Delta, stopped at Sevier Lake and the last portrait taken was in Leamington as the sun was going down

Photo of the Week

This week I had the opportunity to shoot an old friend. We decked the studio with newspaper (obviously) and just had fun. I won't bore you with how the image was captured or adjusted, I'll just let you enjoy a unique portrait.

Photo of the Week

Today my photography team and I had the opportunity to shoot Kailee and Josh's wedding at the Salt Lake Temple. It's much more fun shooting there in the winter as compared to the summer. It's not nearly as busy! I was noticing spots to shoot where I've never noticed before. Hence, the above image. I saw this spot and decided to take advantage of the fire hydrant...(that doesn't sound right). Also, there was an interesting beam of light being reflected on an extremely shallow angle. You can see the tree on the left casting an awesome shadow and casting it only on the wall, not on Josh or Kailee. As you can see, the photo turned out great!

Photo of the Week

In the above image we have my two brothers, Rhett & Brandon, and their friends Brad and Jake. These mentioned individuals work together at a cabinet and entertainment center shop, Regent Custom Cabinets. They commissioned me to come down to their shop to shoot some products... well, we got carried away.

Photo of the Week

in the above image we have a business head shot that I shot the other day. The reason this is the photo of the week is because in the above image I tried a different technique other than my regular method of shooting a business portrait. This time I used only one light, rather than four, and a reflector. And I must say, I think it turned out great! The image was shot at 200iso at 1/125 @ f4.8 and I'm proud to say that this image is straight out of the box, no photoshop adjustments.

Photo of the Week

In the above image we have a portrait from a wedding I shot last summer. The image was shot at iso 200, f/16 @ 1/125. I usually like to use a smaller aperture like f/16-22 on bright sunny days at this particular location. It helps bring both the couple and the temple into a fairly wide depth of field. And with the help of a fill and a team of reflectors we get the photo of the week.

The wonders of Photoshop

It seems like ages since I've posted anything on here. Again, I'm sorry for not posting on a regular basis. I'll try better this year =)
In the above images we have a before and after sample of a photoshop job I did for a loyal customer. I'm kinda proud of the final result, so I thought I'd share it with you. Restoration work is one of my favorite things to do in photoshop. So if any of you out there have anything you would like restored, I would be more than happy to do it.
