I’ve been a busy SnapChick in the last couple weeks…
I collaborated with Squarespace and a viewer on a very exciting project. Squarespace offers a quick and easy all-in-one solution for your online portfolio and Steve Kempfe is a photography student who wanted to create an online presence. So I did a portfolio makeover for him using Squarespace!
The Nikon D5000 has been in the lab for a couple weeks now. I’ve posted two videos on it – a Meet & Greet and a Body Tour & Menu Walkthrough Plus Info Display.
I continued my Studio Lighting Tour by doing a shoot for my video on continuous fluorescent lighting. So far, I’ve posted photos in Part 1 and Part 2, plus a few technical specifications.
Chick at Nite last week was from a video where I talked about building a Nikon DX lens system for recreational photography and Chick at Nite this week was from a super fun shoot when I was in Chicago!
I posted a bunch of photos too… Leroy the Cat’s position while I was working and my red LEGO cargo train! And it was First Sunday too. I also shared a few other photos from my trip to Northern Arizona. A few foggy Grand Canyon photos and then some more from a chilly walk in Flagstaff. I also posted a photo of the setup for my SnapChick Lens Test of DOOM and my new awesome LEGO phone case! Also, a new lens.
I posted a couple VLOGs… One where I talked to you about how I thought I broke my toe (I didn’t). Then one on Thanksgiving morning when I was cooking.

In my Studio Lighting Tour, I showed you my studio lighting setups. Then, I showed you Speedlights! Now, I’m working on a video specifically about my continuous fluorescent lights. I posted Part 1, where I shared a preview of some of the photos from a shoot I did illustrating the lights’ capabilities. Now, I’m sharing more photos, a video and some technical info!

The latest in my videos on my studio lighting setups is continuous fluorescent lights. I’m still working on the photos and video but I have a sample for you, plus more for VIPs! For these photos, I had limited space (I was in my bathroom!), so my smaller set of continuous fluorescent lights worked perfectly. More photos and the videos will be up later this week so be on the lookout on my Facebook page or check back on my site!

I started out the week with some adventuring! I posted photos throughout the week – like this one.

First Sunday was last weekend. I took my trusty Nikon 1 V1 and the 10mm f/2.8 lens downtown to a half-marathon. I wasn’t running; I just wanted to hang out and watch and take pictures.
I talked about the DCI in a video. If you’re curious about what the DCI is, you’ll have to watch the video!
The new Nikon Df was announced this week. I posted a video where I talked about my first impressions. I’ll have more to say on it too. You can find out more or pre-order the camera here.
Mixed lighting is something that we, as photographers, all hate, right? Well, I posted Part 1 of a video on mixed lighting. In Part 1, I talk about some tips for setting your white balance to deal with it.
Last week, I showed you all SlickWraps. In the video, I reviewed the product and showed you a bit how I put it on my iPhone 5s. This week, I got my hands on an iPhone 5c and made a video where I put a SlickWraps phone wrap on it. You can also find out more here!
A few weeks ago, I posted a video on my studio lighting. It was an overview. This week, I posted a video specifically about Speedlights – what they’re good for, what they aren’t so good for… and I showed you example photos throughout the video. I used some photos from previous shoots but I also did a new shoot. So the post has a sample photo for everyone, plus a gallery for VIPs and a video for them as well, where I explain some details of the shoot. You can also find Speedlights similar to those I used in the video here and here!
The SnapChick Friday Morning Rewind was from last year – a shoot where I posed with several cameras!
I posted a few VLOGs – one where I was being crafty, one where I talked about my new running shoes, and another where I took you on my afternoon run.
You can follow me on Facebook to keep up with what I’m up to, but you can get sneak peek at what I’m working on for next week in the video below…
In this video, I showed you my studio lighting setups. Now, I’m making videos featuring each of the setups! For this video on Speedlights, I did a photo shoot in a small space to feature one of their benefits!
