I learned - 090811

I have an affinity for plants. DUH. I take countless useless photos of leaves and tree bark and never really use them. I always try so hard to take photos of people or actions, but I always find myself snapping a photo of a Japanese Maple or the trunk of a Bur Oak. So sometime I go to the botanical gardens here in STL and photograph just plants. Shoot what you love! (well dont shoot it, well you know what i meant) I didnt get a chance to edit this one.

A Little Central West End

I was out photographing a project in my neighborhood and I rediscovered these amazing ornate light fixtures that are the symbol of my neighborhood. They are gorgeous. The lighting was just right for some dramatic shots, and I probably looked like an idiot taking them, but they are so beautiful and the building behind them is historic, and was recently renovated (my firms's project) so take a look. I did the little plaza in the background, not the crazy wild plantings by the base of the light. Such cool historic fixtures.

I added a few pics of my plaza at the end. it still is a work in progress, furniture will be coming soon.

Iphone to the rescue!

SO Kristen and Chris got engaged (awesomeness) but they wanted to wait a bit for making it facebook official. They also wanted to make it more subtle and just post a pic showing the ring. SO i stole an idea from my sister in law Courtney and used my phone, and a little quick photoshop action to create this!
Congrats to two of my favorite people! and remember. Good photography doesnt have to come from a good camera, it comes from capturing good moments.

I learned 7-22

Sometimes you have to let photos just happen. You can plan out all the poses and settings you want but the personality of the subject will come through when you least expect it!

The Miesners

I was asked by my long time friend Jolene to take some photos of her parents in preparation or thier vow renewal ceremony.  It seemed like a huge responsibility, as they are going to be using these photos for their table settings and in various other things. SO I met them in the park one day, a ver hot, 95 degree day, and we shot for about an hour and ended up with some great ones. They are a really fun couple and are laughing almost constantly. Let me know what you think! I went a little crazy with the sepia.
