What Did I Really Do This Week? – September 28, 2013


I went to Prescott, AZ last weekend and mixed business with pleasure… I did a couple photo shoots that you will be seeing more of soon. I did post a couple iPhone photos of one of the locations here and here. I also went on a hike on Mingus Mountain! I posted some photos from the hike this week.
 
I had a deep thought on Monday morning that I asked you guys about… When you look at a photo, do you look for what’s right, or do you look for what’s wrong? I read lots of answers that I thought were interesting. Later in the week, I confided in my VIPs how I feel about the question.
 
I purchased an iPhone 5s last week and I posted a couple videos about the new models this week. One was a quick unboxing of my new 5s. I got my hands on a 5c this week as well, so I compared the two models in a video.
 
I showed off my new R2D2 hoodie in a video. Yes, I said R2D2 hoodie.
 
The SnapChick Friday Morning Rewind was from September of 2011. It was a super colorful shoot where I was experimenting with filters in post-processing.

What Did I Really Do This Week? – September 20, 2013

Let’s talk about what I did this week…

I posted my review of the Canon Pixma Pro-100 inkjet photo printer. I purchased this printer here …and my favorite paper here.
 
I talked about photo contests and photos of the day, and the possible implications in submitting your work to them in a video called Your Images, Photo Contests, and the Fine Print.
 
Which DSLR is best for you? I answered in a Question of the Day video.
 
I also answered a VIP Question of the Day, about whether or not to provide unretouched digital images to a wedding client.
 
Nikon announced a new addition to their 1 Series! It’s called the AW1 and it’s a waterproof mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. I talked about my first impressions of it in a video.
 
The SnapChick Friday Morning Rewind was from a shoot from 2010, where I used natural light for a monochrome boudoir session.

I also took you on a tour of my studio lighting setups in a video. I talked about my different types of lighting and showed you some photos taken using each type of light. For VIPs, there is also a gallery of images and a video where I talked to them a little more about the setups for those photos. I’ll be posting individual videos for each of the lighting types in the coming weeks too!
