Columbus Skyline

Yesterday I was asked to shoot photos for a CD Listening Party for the FlyMental Family of artists. The shoot was at the River Club Restaurant which, in my humble opinion has one of the most amazing views of the Columbus Skyline that I've ever seen. I had a hard time focusing on shooting the party because the skyline was so amazing.

I managed to get in quite a few shots, though (many of which can be found here).

Here's a couple of my faves:

As the evening wore on, the moon decided to peek in, literally, like an eyeball over the city.

I'll try to get more shots up this weekend. There's a couple that I think might even be good enough for stock photo kinda shots.

If I don't talk to you before hand- have a great weekend (I'll be busy shooting something I'm sure! :-)

Favorite Pic of the Weekend

Had an interesting weekend this weekend.

Saturday morning started with a photo-shoot of dogs. Five to be exact (with 4 others to be photo-shopped in at various points in the process).

I have never shot that many animals before so it was very interesting to me. Learned a few things about the shoot.

1. Pets (and small children from what I understand) can NOT be reasoned with.
2. Artistic License has no place in a commissioned shoot until AFTER the shots are delivered that the client wants (luckily I think I'm gonna be ok with this one).
3. Always pack toys that smell good and make interesting noises (I think this holds true for animals and small children).

I do think the shoot went well, and the pix were well received for the most part (I'll post some here when the final product has been delivered).

I did to a set of 'after the shoot' shots. Those can be found here (http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=68898&id=1422790453&l=688502cec9)

I also shot 100+ photos at Tommy's soccer tournament. Those can be found here (http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=68925&id=1422790453&l=4ba2aae99a)

I actually had some good action shots (but still getting used to dialing in action settings, cheated a bit and used the pre-sets).

I think though, out of all of the shots this weekend, the shot below is my favorite.

And with that, I'm off to bed.
