Great Class Last Night

I had a great time in class last night! We got to photograph 2 lovely people: James & Sarah.

Sarah is an actress and James is a dancer.

Last nights class was good because I felt like it was really easy to speak with and connect with the models who I had just met. And not only did I have a great time while I was taking pictures, but I had a great time just hanging out in between turns. The flow of class was SO much better. It felt like there were fewer people in class last night, but its possible that we just had better flow. Hopefully the rest of the classes go that smoothly.

In any case, I can't wait to start working on my pics!! Hopefully it won't be too much longer until I can share them with you. In addition, I'm getting a new ergonomically correct computer chair delivered to my home this evening, so yay to proper seating! Goodbye wooden kitchen chair! Well... not goodbye... it can just you know, go back to the kitchen, where it belongs.

Red Letter Days

As you know, once in a while I like to let my millions of readers (no need to point out the obvious my dear friends) know about other photography blogs that I like. So today I'd like to introduce you all to Red Letter Days.

This blog follows the beautiful work of Scarlet (see pictures of her below). She is a very talented emerging artist & her blog is not only wonderful to look at, but fun to read as well. She just posted some new pictures, in particular some pictures of a violinist that she took at night time... simply gorgeous! She will inspire you.

I'm am very happy to have met her acquaintance and hope that you will be too!

Now stop reading my blog and head over to Red Letter Days !!!

Studly Andrew

Well everyone, the last of this week's People Photography photos have come. I'm not sure what the plan for Monday is... but I'm sure it'll be fun. As fun as it was working with Scarlet, Tamara and Andrew... I don't know.

For now let's take a look at Studly Andrew. For his photos I was trying to work on my first assignment, which is to create a GAP ad. I figured he had the GAP look and the background and lighting fit perfectly as well. I love the first one of him. This is a picture of our introduction - too cute!

Until next time, Gadget.

Tamara Mara Bo Berra

As I mentioned in last night's blog, I also had the supreme pleasure of photographing Tamara. She is a natural in front of the camera and knows how to work it.

I didn't get an opportunity to take any pictures of Tamara on the white background. With so many people in the class its hard to get the time to do everything you want. I had a great idea for a picture of Tamara and Andrew against the white background together in a group shot, but the world will never know it. It is sad.

Thank you, Tamara, for coming to our class so that we could take lovely photos of you. Taking pictures is FUN!

Scarlet Night

First night shooting pics for People Photography was a great night. We had two set ups, a white background and a black background with two very different light arrangements. I was able to set up the lights for our white background shot, which was a great opportunity. I didn't feel like I got to take all that many shots, because the class is so large, but even with only a limited number of frames, I was able to get shots that I am happy with.

Our models on this night were fantastic! Scarlet, Tamara and Andrew. Great bunch of peeps, really easy to connect with and very relaxed in front of the camera.

First we'll take a look at Scarlet! What a pleasure to shoot someone I already know & think is fantastic. She was super cute all night & I could tell she wanted to be on the other side of the camera. It was fun hanging out with her again!

That's a Dog You Fools!

Jerry Ayer, owner of Blanco Taxidermy School has made a fool of himself - and his student should be charged with cruelty to animals. As an animal lover and aspiring dog photographer, I thought I'd comment on this.

If you are unaware of the story, a video including footage of the dead animal can be found here:

Recently (actually it was during my walk-about from the previous post), I had the pleasure of meeting a couple with a very rare dog. I had never seen anything like it before. So, Michelle and I stopped to talk to the couple and pet their dog, a Mexican Hairless dog. When I saw the footage of this "mythical creature", I knew right away that it was the same breed, or at the very least a related breed. More information on the Mexican Hairless can be found here:

Mr. Ayer and his student are fools, and so is the media for allowing him to tell people that he has found some mythical creature. Dear Media, next time you support an individual with a claim like this, do a small amount of research yourself and let the public know how ridiculous these men are.

Well everyone, more good news for Roon-bop Photography. You can now see my work on a blog for See it here. Note the legitimacy with the credits... oh... yea... :P

I would encourage anyone who enjoys golf to check out the rest of the site and to read Mr. Blakely's blog (hmmm.... that name sounds familiar...and he sure is handsome).
