Guess Who's Back!!!

Well it sure isn't Santa Clause! LOL And since I failed to get any posts in while I was down in sunny Florida, it does seem like I haven't done this in a while. Seriously though, I'm trying to be consistent with this and sometimes things, like trips to see your family, take precedent and I'm sure you all understand.

Technical Tuesday 2/21/17

It's Tuesday so we know what that means, tacos for dinner! LOL No seriously, that's probably what is for dinner. It is also Technical Tuesday because I guess that can be a thing. I wasn't sure if it would be something that I would keep doing and even if I did, I'm wasn't sure of how often it will be happening. I do know that the first one was met with some descent interest and the original plan was to cover the camera system basics so it only makes sense to cover the another important component in back-to-back weeks.

She Played to My Heart

My wife is a trip and I love her for it. Actually, she is quite crazy! A couple of years ago she started making spoof videos of songs that she would write to the tune of a popular song. Everyone loved them and have been hounding her to make some more, she hasn't made one in quite awhile. Apparently she really loves he sister as she put a request in and made a new one on Friday night.

Happy Friday!!!

Just a quick blog today wishing everyone has a great long(ish) weekend! I have some stuff in the works so that is why there wasn't a blog yesterday and short one today. I hope to have some information next week on things that I hope to be doing with my photography but I don't want to put the buggy before the horse.

Valentine's Do What?

What in the world is all the fuss about over Valentine's Day? I mean, does anyone really need a day to show their undying love for their significant other? I don't, at least not in the way most others celebrate it. No fancy dinners; no gifts; no chocolates, jewelry, or flowers. My wife is a simple woman, in a good way, and it really pays off on days like yesterday. While most other people were scrambling around for their gifts, I tried to win her heart over with a couple of her favorites.

Technical Tuesday

OK, is Technical Tuesday even a thing? Either it's really dumb or I'm going to be trendsetter with this one; I've never heard of it. LOL So in the course of taking pictures for a little over ten years, a few things have happened that eleven years ago I would have never thought that I would be doing. Everything from shooting races, doing family portraits, and then becoming they guy everyone asks for advice on what to buy when it comes to gear. I'm not the most artsy guy in the field, hell I'm not even the most artsy one living in this house; but I'm a huge tech geek and I would like to pass on some information to maybe help you decide what kind of gear you need to get started.

Photographer Courtesy

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I had a pretty good weekend, even though my wife had a 24 hour duty on Saturday, but all-in-all I can't complain. I did have something happen to me on Friday night that I want to talk about and is something that I have never had happen to me before but have heard it happening to other photographers. I just want to take a second and explain why you should never ask, or expect, a photographer to give you all of their images straight from the camera before they leave the shoot/event.

Decisions, Decisions

This adulting thing is getting to be for the birds! OK, not really; but the decision making process with things related to my business is really going to drive me to drink...more! LOL

Motivation Is a Powerful Thing

To say that I am motivated would be an understatement. Actually, I don't even know if that is possible, let me go check. OK, so I checked and it is my belief that motivated is the pinnacle of drive.

She Loves Me, She Really Loves Me!!!

Man, what a hectic couple of days I have had; all in a good way. I was able to finish up the process of becoming a 100% legit photography business in NC on Wednesday and yesterday was mine and my wife's 13th anniversary!

Superbowl LI 2017

Is it me, or is this year's Superbowl seem to be getting a lot less attention than ones in recent history? I know it is getting coverage and will be watched by like a bagazillion people but the lead up just doesn't seem to have the hype, IMO.
