52 Week Project: Number 23

image.jpg

Alright so this week I did not prewrite my blog like I normally do on Monday. I was working on a special project which I can not wait to share with everyone. This week I am writing this blog on my phone on the way to a funeral (my great uncle just passed on Thursday). I do like the fact I can blog right on my iPhone. When I go on a trip it makes it so I can stay connected with everyone.

So this week was a little different for me. While I was at the beach last weekend I had an idea for a portrait. The idea was for me to hold up a sign that says "free kisses" and see everyone's reaction. I was going to do that after the pier portrait but since I loved how the portrait went I decided not to do it. I'll save that one for a later week. 

Setting up for this portrait was pretty easy. I had my partner in crime Jordan wright the words on the carboard. (You wouldn't be able to read my hand wrighting).  After we headed to the street in front of the studio. I had to be careful about where I put the light since I didn't want to blind any drivers. The light was to the left side of the camera with my travel softbox. I really like the fact that I now have a travel kit. I do need to upgrade the flash and the transmitters but hey I get what I need with the equipment I have. This week I went back to the good ol Fuji. I do like this camera way more then my DSLR (I know I keep saying this, buy one and you will see). 

Well that's it for this week. As always let me know what you think of the portrait.

Recently I made a couple of big purchases for myself. One of which is a new camera! The fujifilm X100s (or Ethel if you are following me on instagram) is now my pride and joy. From the beautiful colors to the amazing sharpness. This camera is an excellent add on!

Trying to lug around Betty (Canon 5d mark ii) is the worst. I wanted something to walk around with and enjoy taking photographs. I currently am working on a new series to keep me entertained called the digital rangefinder. The rangefinder diaries is already taken by my good friend and photographer Dan Bassini who is the reason why I went to Hallmark!

I will be updating my flickr as well as set up a portfolio on my website! The images I have snapped so far amazes me. To add another twist to the photos I will be editing them in VSCO Plugin for LIghtroom! What VSCO does is edits digital photos to look like old film cameras!

Here is the link to my Flickr where most of the photos will be going. I'm more then positive that I will do a couple of blog post on some of the photos and how I edited some!
