taken after an obviously vigorous game of tennis. and by “obviously vigorous” i mean, “we went to millbrook exchange park for like an hour, played one set and one game (all of which i lost miserably), until i gave up and said, ‘hey, let’s go home, make tortellini, and watch 24.'” we then took this shot and left. :)
my dad recently bought a roland fantom G8 keyboard that he’s been tinkering with over the winter. since you can plug in your guitars, mics, etc. into the keyboard and record stuff, he’s resurrected his les paul and squire from the depths of the basement where they’re now happily residing upstairs. i’ve always really liked the les paul even though it weighs a ton and as a kid i was particularly happy with the pinkish purple fuzz that lined the guitar case. today: dad’s guitars – a tribute!
over a week now of project 365 and i think it’s been going really well! although i have to say that i’ve been kinda busy this week and haven’t put as much thought into staging photographs as i would’ve liked, but i’m getting there! i’ve been concentrating a lot on inventing different poses that i haven’t used before for the wedding this weekend. as a wedding and portrait photographer, let me just say that there are only so many poses that you can think of off the top of your head. it has really helped me immensely to sketch and plan them out beforehand so that i can remember the visions that i had for the shoot. oftentimes i write down shot lists on index cards and geoff reads them off to me. it also helps the session run much smoother so you’re not standing there saying, “umm…” while you wait for inspiration to strike. :) also – 58 degrees and sunny this saturday! i don’t think you could ask for better weather for a february wedding.
