Alright. Blogging. This isn't the first time I'm attempting to do this on a regular basis, so let's hope this time, I'll have some more success. Or motivation. Maybe closing my Facebook tab will help me focus.
In any case, in my efforts to blog more, I'll be updating posts here on at least a weekly basis, and for a while, it'll be a chronological hop-scotch between shoots I'm particularly happy with from past years, and also recent events. Who knows, maybe I'll even learn something about my own work this way. Hope springs eternal.
Anywho. On to the important bit: This shoot.
This is one of those shoots that, having known and been fairly close to these people for a long time, promised to be more fun than stress. They're low-key, I'm low-key whenever possible, and we were just looking at spending a couple of hours around Seattle. Even easier, they had two locations picked out - one a little more outdoorsy, near the Montlake Bridge, the other a little more urban, near South Lake Union.
The locations were perfect, the weather was fantastic, and Tomio and Caitlane were obnoxiously adorable and photogenic. I had a blast with these two. Enjoy!
P.S. - if you're into all the techie stuff, check that out after the images, and larger versions of all of these are visible on my Flickr.
Techie Nerd Alert: One of the things I was most stoked about on this shoot was traveling light - most importantly, no speedlights. We caught the daylight perfectly, didn't have a ton of time to spare, and I enjoyed the spontaneity of the whole evening. Sometimes, less is more. I used one Nikon D700 and traded between my trusty standbys, a 35mm f/2 and 85mm f/1.8.
