Busy busy busy

Well as you have probably noticed, I am finally trying to get all of this stuff going. A lot has been happening over the last two weeks while I am on half day schedule. First you may have noticed that this page is no longer http://photosbygi.blogspot.com/ but is now www.PhotosByGI.com. Same website, just decided to get my domain registered to make it easier for people to find me.

ShopTalk Group Shoot with Audie

Auddie Final Shots

Auddie was the third model that I had the chance to work with on the Shop Talk photo shoot. She was the only professional model in the group which was a little intimidating, but she was also really easy to work with. I have had her pictures done for a little while now, just haven’t had a chance to post them because of the holidays and other stuff going on.

How the hell does this thing work?

How the hell does this thing work?

So I have been trying to finish getting all of my workflow and stuff setup for a while now, and it is definately a learning process. A few weeks ago, I started working on a watermark to put on my web photos. I came out with a few drafts, but they still needed work. Also, I needed to figure out a way to add them to my photos because Adobe Lightroom (the program I do a lot of my editing in) doesn’t allow you to add custom watermarks to the photos.

Day Shoot with Liz

Day Shoot with Liz

Ever since our Shop Talk group shot, I have been wanting to practice photographing people more (can only shoot a tree so many times), so yesterday Liz and I dropped pumpkin off at the day care center for a few hours and went out and did a little shooting. We went to two places I had found on a previous trip and stumbled on one new one.

Liz Shop Talk Group Shoot

Liz’s Photos from Shop Talk Shoot

Here are the latest and greatest from our Shop Talk photo shoot a couple of weeks ago. Liz was one of the three models that we had out there that day I was really happy with a lot of the shots that I was able to get (doesn’t hurt that she’s also my wife too).
