leave a comment »

This past friday I had the pleasure of meeting up with RJ, Jeff, and Mikey from LightenUpAndShoot (LUAS) after my work on friday afternoon to do an impromptu photoshoot, I said impromptu because I saw this post below from Mikey at my lunch break at work:

LightenUpAndShoot.com (LUAS) Dallas Workshop

leave a comment »

So a week ago I was fortunate enough to attend the Dallas workshop hosted by Lightenupandshoot Mikey.

Guys, if you have not heard of LUAS, stop what you are doing right now! and head over to http://lightenupandshoot.com/ to see all the awesome photos Mikey is able to produce with one or two off camera flash on location.

ChucknShayla Mitchell-Schuerer was one of the car owner that I was fortunate enough to photograph at the Car Invasion down in Deep Ellum area.

Mikey approached Chuck to see if it would be cool for us to test our gears and techniques on him as Chuck backed his car on the side of the street.

Thanks to Fabian Andablo for assisting with the golden orange light skimming Chuck’s forearms, go team works! lol.

The whole shoot took about 5 minutes from start to finish, it was unfortunate that we were not able to photograph Chuck’s with him as she was away at that time frame. Oh well, there’s always next time now that I have his contact info. 😛

Chuck has since sold the caddy that was featured in this photo.

P.S The textures in the sky were added in Photoshop, thanks to the quick and simple tutorial by Mikey.

P.S.S I do have more photos from the workshop, just waiting for permissions from our models, or could I just go ahead and post them up here?

Hawaii Twitter Couple Ties The Knot

leave a comment »

So today I’ve came across this very interesting video while I was doing some research on twitter and wedding.

Apparently these two couples have met at one of the tweetup in Hawaii, and bam! what we’ve got is a wedding of couple that met each other through twitter. The news was so interesting it even caught the attention of KITV news station

After watching the above video, I started wondering if I could actually find that UStream video shown in the news reel, and yup, I present to you, the wedding ceremony of Dallas Nagata White and Ed White (couldn’t ask for a better coverage of the wedding considering how )

Note 1: I couldn’t get the UStream video to embed on WordPress.com blog, so please click on the image, it will take you to the video on UStream

Note 2: The bride Dallas White gave a good detail on how they met within the first 5 minutes of the UStream video below, enjoy!

Oh and here is the link to the wedding photo of that day

I’ve stumbled across this interesting documentary while I was browsing Vimeo, it’s got to be one of the most interesting and original documentary I’ve come across.

And I am glad that M&M have a sense of humor about this whole thing as well 🙂

Man, Judge Brown is awesome

leave a comment »

So the other day I was surfing Youtube, I stumbled across this video with Judge Brown. Man, the judge sure knows his stuff!

To the photographers: You better know your craft before you start charging people money, especially wedding! You DO NOT want to mess up people’s once in a lifetime opportunities, practice on your own time and dime, paying job is not a good time to practice your craft.

To the brides: The more you know about photography, the less likely you will make the mistake of choosing the wrong photographer for your extra special day!
