Words to live by. Have an awesome Monday!!
I am not sure whether Nikki asked me to photograph her wedding or just told me to.
Either way, I was extremely honored to be asked(or told )!!
Nikki + Rob’s wedding was absolutely phenomenal.
The whole day had this electricity about it that’s tough to put into words, so I won’t try to.
I went a bit overboard with this blog post but hey, you only get to blog about your ‘boss’s’ wedding once!
Video takes a bit longer than photos, but be sure to check out Jim Alteri from Vintage Cinema too!
Jane + Amanda!
The First look
Yea, Nikki isn’t exactly in focus. But it’s an expression like this that I can’t pass up
the whole time we were shooting, this guy was watching
a little practice. . .
The ceremony begins!
The street where it all begins
The parade starts!
Here is a preview of the next installment to the dogs and tattoo project. Dogs Ink!
If you have a bunch of tattoos and you love your dog. Get in touch with us! We’re always looking for models!
-Henry David Thoreau-
When is the last time you stepped back and asked yourself, ‘why am I doing whatever I am doing, this way?’ Is it because someone showed you it that way, or is there some rule you are following, that you’ve always followed without asking yourself, why?
When is the last you broke a rule? Not just to break it, but break it because you didn’t agree with it.
Sure there could be sound reasoning behind it, but that doesn’t mean you need to follow it. What happened to pushing the envelope? Testing the waters. Jumping without looking.
Some aspects of photography I feel have become more of a science than an art. The experimentation has fallen to the way side to be replaced by specific formulas, light meters and an expectation that you follow the rules. The rules of thirds, the golden ratio, balance in your image, highlights aren’t blown out, darks are too dark; a nice balanced histogram.
What happened to the joy of picking up a camera and experimenting? Jumping a fence to see what’s on the other side, sneaking into an abandoned building with a camera, a flash and an inclination of what might look cool.
Who cares if it doesn’t turn out perfect? Who cares if what you photograph offends someone?
The goal of appeasing everyone is an illusion of grandeur. How about the goal of appeasing yourself?
Doing what you want to do.
Stu, Tech and I jumped a fence with a camera, a flash, and the idea of doing what we wanted to do.
These images are not perfect, technically or otherwise, they might offend you, but it’s what I wanted to do.
It’s what I though would be cool.
Go out and do something you want to do this week. Try something new. Break a rule.
Have a rad Monday.
