3/4 Bridal Profile

Shot @1/6oth@f8 using a 24-85mm  lens. The camera used was the Nikon d3s.
For our wedding class one of our projects was to do a 3/4 profile, Katie was kind enough to model for me and this was my favorite from the shoot.

Wedding Album

For our wedding class we are putting together a wedding album from our mock wedding, this is quite the challenge as we have to sort through so many images and arrange them. These are the first pages that I'm playing with please give me your feedback.

Wedding Shots

shot atf5.6@1/60th 400iso
shot at f13@1/125th iso200

Just a few candid shots taken at weddings this month.


We were given a panoramic assignment in our Digital Imaging class and this is what I turned in, this was taken at the Sedgefield Country Club.  Ive always wanted to photograph there so I decided to give a panoramic perspective. These shots I found out, are not the easiest to take.Keeping your exposure consistent is key, and must be controlled by shutter speed not aperture, while maintaining correct focus.This shot although bracketed was mostly shot at a  60th of a second while the aperture remained at f13.

Foggy Bottom

This picture was taken on my way home, and  the light was very low but I wanted to try out the Nikon d3s with some high iso shots to see how well it did. This one is grainy and mysterious but would not have been possible without 3200iso and a 85mm 1:8.


I had wanted to do some pet pictures for a while now so when my cousin got her German pointer puppy I thought Id give it a try,lighting this little guy was tough but I managed to get a few cute pics, tell me what you think.(shot with a Nikon d3s with a 80-200mm lens I bounced flash of of the ceiling and side wall.)

Bridal Bliss

For those of you who don't know her this is Tiffani She was kind enough to model for me in the studio so here are a couple of shots. these where taken with the Nikon D300 and 80-200mm and shot mostly at 6.3.  I also played with the color temp. one cool one a little warm.


This is Allie Conder and she loves the camera, I wanted to do some location shots with a child so I went to the old Pilot Life Ins. building on Highpoint Rd. These are a few of the shots I took with the Nikon D3s with a 80mm 1.8 also some where taken with a 55-200mm 4.5. The camera is full frame but the lens was not thus explaining the vignette around the edges. All of the shots where taken with natural light with flash for catch lights.

Georgia Girl

This little girl is a handful, Ive been trying to get her picture for sometime but she is always goofing around and cant sit still very long. But she is adorable.

Somber Cascade

This picture was taken at Hanging Rock State Park, which I think is one of the prettiest spots inside the park.
