Senior Portrait Session - Cassandra Matherne Last Friday I had another outstanding senior portrait session, this time with Cassandra Matherne.  This shoot was a lot of fun, and we were able to capture both the fun, tom-boy side of Cassandra, as well as her feminine beauty.  


I think my favorite image of those in this collage is the one at the bottom left, with her in the teal dress leaning on the old painted wall.  There were so many good shots from this shoot, it is hard to decide.  There are several more great images from this shoot, including my favorite, but I am saving those for the proofing session. ;)

Senior Portrait Session - Cody Hill A couple of Saturdays ago I had a senior portrait session with Cody Hill, a senior at Marshall County High School.  Let me just say this, CODY HILL IS AWESOME!  (Total inside joke - find Tammy Hill and she'll tell you the back story!)

The Lord has really blessed me with some great seniors to shoot so far, and Cody was no different.  I was a little nervous about this shoot, as it had rained a lot the night before, and we were scheduled to begin early in the morning when the sun was just right in the sky.  It was a bit of a slow start due to all the water outside, but after we rectified that the shoot went off magnificently. 

Perfect weather, perfect light from the sky, and outstanding backgrounds all make for great shots, but a good subject can compensate for a lot of other problems.  Cody surprised me - I thought he would be a good subject, but this young man has an infectious smile and great humor that made my job easy.

The proofing session for Cody and his parents, Tom and Tammy Hill is this upcoming week, but I wanted to go ahead and give a small preview of the shoot beforehand.

If you see Cody out and about, why not give him a shout out and let him know how well he did.  Oh, you might raz him a bit and tell him, "Cody Hill is AWESOME!" while you're at it.  :)

Remember, if you want a Senior Portrait Session for the fall of 2014, now is the time to book it.  I have limited openings, and the slots will fill up fast.

Saturday's Shutterbug Spotlight - Ted Sabarese One word can describe Ted Sabarese's work.  Weird.  And I say that in the most complimentary way.  It is wierd, but in a strangly appealing way.  I wish I didn't have to say this, but there are some images on his site that some may offensive, so view with that in mind.

You can find Ted Sabarese on Facebook and Twitter.

Saturday's Shutterbug Spotlight - Slavina Bahchevanova Salvina Bahchevanova doesn't see herself as a particular kind of photographer.  With amazing images in a number of genres, I can see why.  After looking through some images on her site though, her macro work has caught my eye.  Even so, she has her images protected in such a way I cannot link to them here, but I found an amazing non-macro image on Google+:

I don't see Slavina on any social media channels, but do yourself a favor and go check out her work today.

Wednesday's Words of the Day "The only difference between artists making money and artists not making money is that the first group is better at business. Do you want to know why there are so many crappy films in the world? Because there are so many great networkers who want to direct." ~ Penelope Trunk - Creative Business Development

Wednesday's Words of the Day To take a photograph means to recognize – simultaneously and within a fraction of a second– both the fact itself and the rigorous organisation of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one’s head, one’s eye, and one’s heart on the same axis. ~ Henri Cartier-Bresson - Famous French Photographer, 1908-2004

Saturday's Shutterbug Spotlight - Dave Black WOW, WOW, WOW!  Dave Black does some amazing work!  He often uses a technique called light painting, which is lighting the image with a flashlight, essentially "painting" the light.  This stuff is amazing and you really need to go check it out.  Here is one example of hsi work.

Saturday's Shutterbug Spotlight - Valerie Jardin Valerie Jardin is a street photographer from France living in Minnesota.  She, like many others I mention on here, lives the photographer's dream.  While she makes money from her prints, I would think it is fair to say she probably makes the lion's share of her income from her workshops in France, the United States, and Australia.  Here is a great example of her work:

Wednesday's Words of the Day Ansel Adams

You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.

Saturday's Shutterbug Spotlight - Varina Patel So, last week I featured Jay Patel, and as you will see, you cannot mention one half of this team without the other, so this week meet Varina Patel.  Her work is very similar to Jay's in style, which is to say, I LOVE IT!  Look at this striking image:

Just like with Jay, you can prepare to spend some time looking through Varina's work at her website, or on Google+, Facebook, Youtube, Pinterest, or Twitter.
