down...




Been sick for three days now. Nasty bugger of a head cold. I get them twice a year and this one is running a couple months early. Best get it out of the way before warm weather gets here.. My photography and videography business is slow to start but showing signs of life. Beginning to wonder if i should have even bothered. People call and you give them quotes and then they complain that your prices are to high. No problem I just tell them "Fine, go some where else" or "Go buy a camera and you try it." Of course I am very polite when telling them this....most of the time. Redone some lightning shots from last year. Been a while since I have been able to capture any..looking forward to the Spring here in the South..

Love the shots! I think the added career may be fun and a pay off down the road?

Lightening shots are so hard (at least for me). I have only gotten 1 and it is nothing like yours.

Feel better soon!

I hope it will Linda..At least for some extra money to buy camera goodies..;-)

Valerie,lightning is one of the easiest things to shoot. Set the camera to a setting that isnt automatic. Focus on a distant light source then turn off the auto focus. Set timer so you dont have to press the button down or use a shutter cable to open the shutter. let the shutter stay open for 15 secs and any lightning that appears is captured. this is the basics. But it takes a little practice but it will come quickly to you..

Hopefully by time u read this you are feeling much better. I am sure u are. Sorry to hear about the business being a little slow but hey, it's gotta pick up hey? There's definitely business for it here, so many amateurs for video in weddings here it's incredible and people are paying just about anything... sad, very sad. Their Video is shaky and it makes me wonder how people would pay for that! tsk tsk.... once in a lifetime event. But there isn't anyone else here... u would be a Godsend! Oh well. I'm looking forward to Spring as well... but at least this winter wasn't as cold as last winter, yay.

These photos were touched up beautifully, by the way!! Very nice!

Hugs
