day 283: I realized today that it’s been an awfully long time since I posted a shot with my macro lens. I mainly use this lens for detail shots at weddings so it hasn’t seen much use in the last couple of weeks. What better way to give it a workout than by shooting Rita’s nose?
day 282: This afternoon my friend Crissy and I got together and brought along her husband Marcus and Ben to model for us while we experimented with off camera lighting. It was a super fun and informative little get together… and I think I have new favorite jumping photo. How hilarious is this one?
day 281: This evening we met up with Sam and Tai to have dinner and exchange early Christmas gifts since they’ll be in Kansas and we’ll be here… they gave Ben an awesome polaroid camera so now he has a new fun toy to play with (although at 10 shots per film package it’s quite an expensive hobby) It’s quite an entertaining gift… thanks guys!
day 280: Since Ben and Mark are coming to my parents’ house for Christmas this year and neither of them has ever had a personalized stocking at my parents’ house… I figured it was time for me to get crafty and break out my embroidery needle. I’m not quite finished with them yet but this is what I’ve got so far. Yay for Christmas stockings!
day 279: With the total lack of evening light these days (darn you winter) it’s hard to get inspired to get out and take photos after a long day of work. By the time I step outside it’s usually totally black. Today I happened to step out a bit earlier and caught the very last of the sunset as I was walking to get a coffee. I can’t wait for the days to get longer again!
day 278: This evening Ben and I went to meet up with a bunch of people that I used to work with at my last office. It was their holiday party and afterwards they all went out to a bar in Santa Monica. Little did we know there was a band…
