The kids got back from a church retreat this weekend up in the mountains and had a blast. Between devotional time, tubing, and building community, they really enjoyed themselves. Thanks to Demetrius, Estella, the Hornak’s, and everyone else who volunteered to make it a successful weekend! Upon our return, it was my niece’s birthday so… Read More
Groovy baby! Love all of the 70s textures and patterns – Thought I would play with in camera HDR with this one. There isn’t a lot of dynamic range, so not really that interesting. Although I do love the funky patterns as I’ve mentioned. Shot with Canon 5DmkIII 50mm f/1.2L, f/1.8, 1/125″, ISO 3200.

Today I tried to work with OCF (Off Camera Flash). Unfortunately, it was mid-day and I didn’t use quite enough flash power to ‘overpower the sun’ efficiently, so I moved on over to capture my two favorite young men hanging out in the tree! Shot with Canon 5DmkIII, 50mm, f/2.8, 1/250″, ISO 100
