It’s been a busy summer. Multiple projects are on my plate, and it’s my own fault, but I’m finally ticking things off one at a time and finally catching up to everything where it’s becoming more manageable. Whine, whine, cry, cry – I know.
One of the things I was more excited about this summer was that Landon turned one in July. It’s already been a year since he was born and I was taking pictures of him being weighed for the first time. Eric and Allison asked me to take his birthday pictures, and we found out that he doesn’t like cake. Seriously, what’s wrong with kids these days?
Chin-One of Omnitious.com asked me to do another set of fashion photos, and I got to work with a model for the first time in a while. Thankfully, Stephanie has been around the block enough that she made the shoots easy and laid back for all of us. It was probably one of the best times I’ve had photographing a model, and it was spread out over a couple days. There wasn’t much direction from me needed, she just flowed really well and all I had to do was press the shutter release every once in a while, and I got a nice shot. I got so zoned out during the shoots because of this that I had to remind myself that I had to focus on the clothes and less on Steph.
The success of Fotos for Food 2010. Here's to hoping we generate more next time around.
On another note, Fotos for Food was a slight success. There wasn’t much in terms of a turnout (mostly friends), but the donations were great and we got some cool pictures (as of now, still working on them). Thanks to all the folks who gave, my car was full when I went to go drop the donations off at a Northwest Harvest drop site at a UPS store. Seems like I overwhelmed the desk clerks in the shop and blocked their store front with all the boxes of food. One of them didn’t waste any time calling Northwest Harvest for a pickup. Nice job, folks.
Thanks to JayTPhotos and TurkPhotos for their help, as well as to all the folks who were so willing to lend a hand with the event. Hope to see you next time with an even more successful event.
The race season’s dying down, but I managed to shoot some video during my first official race weekend with WMRRA and make a short video out of it.
And of course, 2Fast photos. The last session was at PIR, and it was a great (albeit the heat) day for it. Attendance was a bit low, considering the week before was plastered with track days from other organizations as well as the OMRRA weekend, but the turn out was still pretty good. Mark (2Fast owner) decided to run the day in the two-session format instead of the usual three, and I even got myself out on the track to try it out for the first time (never ridden PIR before). Despite hearing that the layout can get boring quick, I had a blast in the few sessions that I had, and it was refreshing to turn right more often than left on the cleanest pavement I’ve ever ridden on. This might inspire me to keep checking out new tracks in the warmer states in the off-season. Hmmm.
Find your PIR pictures from that day here, and purchase information here. Due to me putting the camera down, as well as forgetting my teleconverter that day, galleries are at a discount, so enjoy your photos for less.
