Pictures for the Month of August – 2011
Another very busy month of shooting. So many opportunities and so little time.
I travel a lot and that usually gives me much opportunity to shoot images I would not usually be able to. However, it also gives me the chance to see other work. Recently I traveled through the Dulles airport and saw some beautiful landscapes hanging on the wall next to the gate. I was really inspired by some of the nighttime cityscapes. There is one of Detroit that is absolutely beautiful. This inspiration let me to shoot the following images of the Dallas skyline.
As parents you naturally go through life documenting, through video and images, the lives of your children. Then when they become adults and have families of their own you become involved in their families as well. My daughter has a beautiful family with four children and you have probably seen their images on this blog in the past. It has been a while since I actually shot my daughter and I wanted to update the images hanging on my wall with some recent ones. So I spent an August afternoon with her and below are some of my favorites from the shoot.
Friday nights in Texas are especially exciting during the months of August through November for anyone involved in High School. If your football team is lucky and gets into the playoffs, the season may extend into December. Below are some shots I took of the Heritage Christian Academy High School and Middle School football games.
In previous posts I have tried to indicate the importance of being involved in photography clubs to help you learn from other photographers and network with them increase your exposure. I have done it more this year than ever and it has really paid off. In August I attended a meeting to discuss the use of speed lights on location. These meetings always include a model and great instruction on the topic. Even if you feel comfortable with the topic, it’s a great chance to reinforce your knowledge and meet with other photographers. Below are my images.
Until next time.
