Long time no blogging…I know I suck. 😉

Last night I went to see the band, Lefthead, who I might be working with to create some images for their press kit. Of course I had to take some shots of them in action…it was super fun and I was reminded how incredibly hard it is to take good shots in the virtual darkness…and of a band that is totally rocking out! I was intent on not using flash because I wanted to capture the “feel” of the stage (okay, that, and the fact that I don’t actually own a off camera flash, LOL!).
I think I got a few cool shots and hopefully I’ll get the chance to work with them again and we can do a proper shoot (and I can get the rest of the band in the shots, sorry dudes)!

Here are some of my favorites…






My personal favorite…can you say ROCKSTAR??

Thanks Lefthead!!!


In other news…yesterday morning I met up with a fellow photographer/blogger, Jamie of UmbrellaBlog. It was so fun to meet someone from the virtual world in real life and talk “geek” for a while! AND…she’s going to be doing a photo session with us!!!!!! I am SO excited I can hardly stand it…she is a wonderful photographer and I know she’ll get some awesome shots of the fam! WOOT!

She also just started another blog in collaboration with a Chicago photographer and today they are having a virtual blog warming party complete with a fantastic giveaway! Go. Check. It. Out!!!!

    As a witness to the lighting conditions that night, I have to say this is a particularly impressive set! You got in there and plucked out the essential moments with amazing clarity.

    Your shots in virtual dark turned out awesome! I hope the press kit work comes your way too.
