I went to Los Angeles for a weekend photo seminar/workshop. I like attending a seminar from time to time as it is a nice way to motivate yourself to do more things. I also got a chance to photograph a musicians while I was there and I have a new list of gear I want to purchase!

Spent Friday night hanging out with some other photographers and a model. Had some fun taking these images of Sydney.
I haven't been posting too much because I have been working on my portfolio. I have about 24 printed 11x14 images on the way for my print portfolio. I have a portfolio review at a photo workshop in Los Angeles in 2 weeks so I am in the last minute push to get everything ready! Can't wait to show you what I shot when I get back from Los Angeles so stay tuned. :)
Few images from the last week or so. Been trying to take advantage of the nicer weather before winter starts.
Doing an attempt at a music video 2 days this coming week. Video is a challenge for me so wish me luck as it could be used on a bigger music magazines website.
Shoot with bass player Bundy of Seven Days Lost and Myth of Creation last night. I have had shooting at this location on my list for 1-2 years and even had a few no shows when I did try to shoot there. Was nice to finally test out some ideas that have been in my head for a long while. Did some experimenting with in camera effects and some were interesting(2nd image down).
I did have troubles with getting my studio lights to fire so I am buying the rest of the items I need to upgrade so that won't happen again!
The nice thing about having a drummer(Brundun with Goatsilk) who lives in your town is calling him up when you have a crazy idea. Had this idea in my head for awhile now but took awhile to get it worked out with our schedules and the weather in the evenings. Getting pretty cold in the evenings so this was a fast shoot so he didn't freeze too much. My mother and father were my two assistants on this shoot and I do have to say my mom couldn't stop laughing while she was spraying the water. She has known Brandun since we were little kids. :)
Still a few things I learned and will try differently in the future. I have another drummer lined up for this one but it may have to wait until next Spring/Summer when the temps are warmer again.
