Requests

Apparently I’m taking requests now.

So my wife has developed quite the “photographer’s eye” these days.

Gone?

For as much snow as we got a couple weeks ago, it’s pretty crazy how little I’m seeing when I look out my window.  Well, even though there’s little to no evidence left, I still have photographic proof that it happened.

Granted, this is a sporty-looking 4-door coupe, but that’s still an impressive amount of snow!

Leap Of Faith

I don’t really feel too bad about it.  After all, he’s been in snow before.  You’d think he’d have learned his lesson.

He completely disappeared when he landed.  Bet he’s kinda mad at us.

#TB (Insert Day of the Week)

Wow, it’s been a long time.  Not that I’m lazy, but I’m going back through all my photos to see if I can dig up some good ones.  Someone recently gave me a great quote about what separates a pro from an amateur photographer.  Basically it come down to size matters.  Now, get your mind out of the gutter…

The size of their “trash can.”  Pros take a crap-load of photos and most are never seen by anybody.  In 2015 I shot 6478 “general” photos.  This figure doesn’t take into account all the paid gigs that my studio handled.  That would bump the number of images up to 29,925.  Still not an enormous number compared to a lot of pros, but when you factor in the fact that I only considered 90 good enough to post here, that’s a lot. A mere 3 tenths of a percent were deemed decent enough to represent my studio.

Wow, long story short, here’s one of those images that never made it here (at least I don’t think it did).

It was almost a year ago that we had our first snowfall and two weeks ago it was nearly 80 degrees!

It’s Only Tuesday, It’s Snowing and I Don’t Have My Selfie Stick!

I’m amazed that this is only our second day in the parks – we’ve done so much already this week and a great deal of it has nothing to do with Disney.  Ya see, we’re selling our house and closing while we’re down here.  Geez.  Thank goodness we have a kick-ass realtor!  Anyway, I’ve been itching to get up in the air to shoot some awesome photos, but I’m more than slightly concerned about the Disney no-fly zone.  I’ve checked, and our hotel is outside the 3-mile radius, but still…ya know?  And I’ve only taken my good equipment into the parks once – to Hollywood Studios for the fireworks.  Didn’t get a really good angle, but still a great show.  So most of my images have been with my GoPro, which isn’t a bad camera, but it won’t shoot RAW – BOO – anybody at GoPro reading this? 😉  And yes, Disney has now banned all selfie sticks.  They even have pamphlets about it!  BOO – anybody at Disney reading this?  I can actually understand that rule, but I’m not the idiot who’d do something stupid with it.  It’s everybody else :P.

I have an awesome photo in mind that I'm still going to try to get before the end of the week - fingers crossed!

Delay

Due to extreme temperatures and weather conditions, Spring will be operating on a 2-month delay.

I’m giving up Winter for Lent.  Who’s with me?!

 

Catch Up

My course just missed an entire week’s worth of class time.  Gonna have to play catch up.

Yep, that pretty much sums it up.
