Evan and Jenny’s Engagement Photos

It’s been awhile since I have had a post! Anyways, I was lucky enough to partake in my second engagement photoshoot a little over a week ago. Evan and Jenny are a great couple and it was so easy to photograph them because they were constantly smiling and laughing with one another. I had a great time and I wish them the best of luck! As always, feel free to comment and thanks for looking!

A Great Way to Spend $7

So if you are anywhere near Milwaukee on Fridays or Saturdays, I highly suggest going to the Milwaukee Brewing Company tour. It is quite the deal – $7 for all-you-can drink at the tour and the glass is yours afterwards! Here are the pictures (in slideshow form since there are quite a few of them) from the 1st two times I visited with my friends. Great times!

Getting “creative”

Okay, so I was bored after class today and I took a few pictures of random objects around the apartment, as well as one out my window (the first image). I guess I can say I was attempting to show my “creative” side…Anyways here they are. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think! Thank you!

Just for fun – Jon and Nerissa

Well, it has been a little while since I made my last post since it was final crunch time in school. However, now that I have a little bit more time, I finally got to finish editing the pictures of Jon and Nerissa. This was a nighttime shoot in downtown Milwaukee that I did for them. It was pretty cold that night and Jon and Nerissa were very patient and troopers through it all. My flash was misfiring like crazy and my roommate Alan acted as my mobile umbrella/flash holder; his arms were getting tired towards the end of the shoot, but he stuck with it! Anyways, here are some of the images. Please click on the smaller image to see larger files with better resolution. As always, feel free to leave a comment and thanks for looking!

Chicago Auto Show

This past Saturday I took the day off from any schoolwork and decided to head to downtown Chicago for the Auto Show with a few wonderful friends. I took quite a few pictures; however, very few were from the car show. Instead, I wanted to get more practice with my newly acquired 50mm. I got more experience in Street Photography, both before and after the Auto Show, as well as some portraits and architecture shots. Anyways, here are  a few of the images (11 to be exact). You may find the street photography pictures from my Saturday rendezvous under the Street Photography section of my Portfolio.

Revisiting 2 Old Photos

Something I have learned while taking up photography is that I enjoy to go back to older photos every once in a while and re-edit them since my Photoshop skills have grown since then. Another reason I like to do this is to practice when I am pressed for time and don’t have time to take new photos, or I like to see if other effects will make the pictures more interesting. Anyways, here are 2 photos I have recently revisited. The original edit is on the left and the new edit is on the right. Click on the images for larger file sizes and better resolution. Thanks for looking! Comments are always welcome!

A black bed sheet and 2 flashes with umbrellas…

Turns out that simple set-ups such as a black bed sheet,  2 film era flashes (triggered with wireless transmitters/receivers), and a few friends can make for a pretty fun impromptu photo shoot. Here a just a few of the images and I have plenty more to edit. So be sure to check back for more!

Best wishes to Jon and Phoebe! (Click on images for full size and better resolution)
