Can’t wait to show you guys all the good ones from this wedding. Busted out my new lensbaby too on this shoot!
A physical game makes for some great photos. Timbers ended up just tying 1 – 1 but it was a great game all the way through the end.
Capsule- A short fictional film directed by Tony Altamirano (tonyaltamirano.com) contacted me to shoot some shots for the movie poster. It’s about 2 guys who just crash landed in a space capsule, so he wanted a picture of one of the guys in a yearbook style photo for the movie poster. We tried a few different lighting set-ups but in the end we just used one 580ex ii for a high contrast look.
Andy Van Hekken and Cory Luebke took a pitcher’s duel into the seventh inning before the Round Rock Express took advantage of an error to score three runs in the ninth to finish a four-game sweep of the Portland Beavers with a 3-1 win in front of 9,983 at PGE Park Friday night.
This photo reminds me of what happens when you just point your camera in the direction that you know something’s going to happen and staying patient. The mascot was going crazy and the the crowd was feeding off of it, something was bound to happen.
This woman’s reaction was priceless. She caught a foul ball that was going extremely fast right at her. It took her a moment before she realized that she caught it, then she started jumping up and down and celebrating.
I bought some new lighting equipment and had some fun during a test shoot. I offered some free photos to a couple people I know in exchange for a little bit of practice. The shoot was really fun and I can’t wait to do another one.
Drew Locke and Brian Bogusevic hit back-to-back home runs in the first inning and Shane Loux earned his fourth win as the Round Rock Express defeated the Portland Beavers for the third straight night 6-2 before 7,992 fans at PGE Park Thursday night.
The most care-free wedding I’ve ever been to. These two just wanted to have fun, weren’t worried about pics, order of events, anything! That was such a relief. I’m so used to making sure everything is going according to a very fine tuned plan, and when I asked Kim after the ceremony, “What’s next?” she replied “Eh, I don’t know, why don’t you decide.” Awesome!
The location was very beautiful and people were very photogenic. I took more photos then I usually do because of all the opportunities. Later on during the wedding the electricity went out and the bathrooms shut down. People started to leave and I felt like I needed to do something. So I started taking pictures of the guests and involving them in a long exposure photo where they wrote “Dan Heart Kim” with torches. It took a few tries but we did it! Also, I took a second sync flash photo of Kim while my friend drew a heart with a torch around them. Sometimes, you gotta make the best with what you got, and in a pitch black amosphere these were some great things to try.
Kentucky Falls is an easy beautiful hike…it just takes about 30mins on a deserted gravel road to get there. Kind of scary if you go alone. Anyways, through the entire hike the sun was beaming through the forrest lighting up the leafs and trees, it brought out the golds and greens really well. The waterfalls were huge and it took some rock climbing and sliding to get to a good spot for some of the photos I took. Some long exposure some shot at f/2.8 with a fast shutter.
Hiked up the South Sister and made it a goal to find the north star and take at least a 10 second exposure of it. Of course, on the way up the mountain there were plenty of things to shoot. Hope you enjoy!
My buddy Aaron Kalms took this one at 6:45am when a bunch of fog was hanging over our camping spot. Fog never offers up any contrast so I crushed the blacks a bit in post to bring a wider range of levels.
I shot and edited a commercial last week for On Deck Sports Bar & Grill located in the Pearl District in Portland, Or. They wanted to show off the bar interior and exterior, so I did my best to make each shot unique knowing that for a :15 second commercial there would only be about 5 photos showing.
