Out of the the norm from my fashion photography, I used this this image which was the location from an underground fashion show that I was invited to. If you can find it in the city, YOU ARE A ROCKSTAR!

When I thought about what to do for my next assignment "light" I came up with all the cliché light ideas then I thought what kind of light do you not want to see. I instantly came up with this concept. I live on a really busy road so all I had to do is wait with my camera ready and I would see light soon enough. On the second night a police office pulled a car over right in front of my house. I took this shot right out my front window. It got really exciting watching the cop integrating the driver but he just let him go. Over all it was a exhilarating shoot.
Light is everywhere and you can't get away from it. It lightens up our days and we are surrounded by it at night. We use it without worry and know that we can't get away from it. Photographers can use light to their advantages in more ways than any person can possibly think of. From lighting an apple in the studio to lighting a whole set out on the street, would you know how to light the most simple objects?
After the first wedding I photographed in August, I swore I would never shoot another, and yet here I am. This time I was one of TWO shooters for the day in question. Cameron Dabney was the other shooter and was really great to work with! This seemed like a great way to relieve some of the stress that inevitably comes with a wedding, which apparently happens even when it's not yours! Although stressful, this experience was a lot of fun.
We photographed Meredith, Jared, and the wedding party at a beautiful park in Boulder and had a lot of creative freedom. The reason I chose this shot to represent light is because of the amount that is present through all of the stress of this special day for a fantastic couple. As a photographer, it's wonderful seeing the light in the eyes of all of those a part of the wedding day. Capturing love and the festivities surrounding it is very rewarding.
Thanks to Meredith and Jared for allowing me to be a part of your special day! Congratulations!
Perfect lighting makes a perfect photo. This photo has an amazing background and 4 cute girls, but with out the light on their faces the photo would not be nearly as strong. It is amazing what a difference the pop of a Q flash can make on a photo. This is true with most images. The image can have a ton of beautiful things in it but with out lighting the image is weak. I took this photo at my friend Meredith Xepolis's wedding this weekend. Raydene Salinas was the other photographer for the wedding, she also took some amazing photos! We went to a park in Boulder for the wedding party pictures. The sun was not shinning like I wanted it to be so I created my own sun using a Q flash. Light is what makes photography!
