Self Portrait

I realized something today.  Getting people to take great pictures is not an easy job.  Strangely enough I  have a hard time with being photographed.  I'd much rather focus on other people's face and dedicate countless hours towards making someone else look perfect rather than myself.  Good pictures are created by great models as well as great photographers.  I'm also realizing more and more that the photographer's job is very important, especially to someone that doesn't like being photographed.  This assignment will make me work harder.  My wife Shonda shot this photo, she shot it at f/8 at 1/60 shutter speed.  We were using a Canon 50D and added a little photo shop to this old dude.

Window Lighting

Here is a shot of my little men for my window light shot.  It was somewhat of an overcast day but somehow pulled a decent shot out of it.  I'm definitely planning on doing more window shots, its has a nice finish to the image.
