Isn’t it Spring?? Did I miss something? We had a wonderful ice storm and coming home from work all the trees looked beautiful, or at least the trees that didn’t come down with the ice. When I got home I grabbed my camera and headed down to the industrial flats in Appleton. I took a few photos and heard this train coming. I literally had to run to catch the train, no really!
Every now and then I do get to go out and take photos for me, just for the fun of it. When I first started taking classes in College I did a lot of night photography. To this day I still enjoy it. Here are a few shots from last night. The first is of the Marcus Theater in Kimberly. They have lots and lots of neon and it always photographs great. The second is from downtown Appleton. This stair has always intrigued me especially at night. Oh yeah and one more thing, I love night shots in Black and White.
Last Week I had the pleasure of photographing Lindsay and Tom’s engagement photos. We had a great time walking to the different areas and getting to know each other. They laughed at my bad jokes, they laughed with each other, all around a great shoot. I always enjoy seeing how my couples relate to each other and knowing this before the wedding helps me on the wedding day.
As some know, during the day I work for Image Studios. The other day I was at the Kohler Design Center, a beautiful place with tons of ideas for your kitchen and bathroom. One of the displays that they are known for is the wall of toilets and sinks (actually they are called lavs in the bathroom). Sometimes when we are shooting we have to wait for the client to get back to us for approval. Sometimes this is quick and other times, well lets just say not as quick. Here are a few shots from the Design Center
I love the concept of flying, but don’t really care for it in practice. I am one of the lucky ones who can get air sick. When I was younger it was much worse. No, I never needed the bag but it was close once or twice. Nowadays it is not as bad, Dramamine helps but it puts me in a funk. I am flying into the Detroit area this week to photograph some malls for Image Studios. For those that don’t know, this is where I work during the day. So. I fly into Detroit and now I wait for a short flight to Lansing. At this point I am thinking I should have drove. Oh well. I am thankful for a little over 2 hour layover. Lets me come back to normal, but 2 hours is a long time. With all his time I explored the airport. Here are a few shots from this time
Here are a few engagement photos from last weekend. They loved the outdoors and wanted to do a little something with the colors. We were at a few places but ended up at Peabody park in Appleton. I love going to this park for it’s many areas to shoot. Many years ago with the help of my mentor this is where I learned to “see” light. It has been a while since I have been here and it needs to get back on my radar.
