Right out of History

February 7, 2011

I had to go down to Long Beach today to take care of some business, and while I was driving through town I saw this old photo-booth. I remember back when these were in every shopping center parking lot, but most of them have long ago been torn down to recover the parking spaces the booth took up. I was so enamored with this little boot that I went around the block and came back and shot some photos of it. I love the convenience and ease of shooting digital, but I truly miss the “good ole’ days” of film.

My 52/52 Project

February 5, 2011

Last year I started a picture a day project where I would create a photograph every day for one year. I had a great time for several weeks, but it was a more daunting task than I was able to follow through with. So this year I am making a little more realistic, I am creating one photograph per week for 52 weeks. I gladly welcome any comments or suggestions from everyone.

My first photograph of this project is a portrait of my dog Gucci. I shot it with natural window light with a nikon 35mm f1.8 lens shot wide open for the great depth of field.

Wolf Yellowstone

I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to go to yellowstone and shoot some photos for my stock portfolios.  I got some really nice shots, and I wanted to share them here with you all.  Let me know what you think, and which are your favorites.  I love to get feedback on my photos.

A+Bride+by+Window Dustin and Morgans Wedding

Last weekend I had the opportunity to help out my good friend Nate Allred of Treasure Photography shoot a wedding in Utah.  The bride was absolutely beautiful, and the couple was so excited to be getting married.  Even the 100 degree plus weather didn’t hamper the party.
