My Weekend Photo Session for a Friend

Hey folks. Here’s a photo I took this weekend and I thought I’d give you the low-down on the setup for a shot I call “Super Baby!” (get it, low down, set up – I know, it’s bad ). Anyway, a good friend of mine, Derek, asked me to photograph his wife and new baby. He assured me the baby was really great and when that happens you can usually count on a miserable day.

Tips I Learned at Scott's Lightroom Tour

Yesterday, I finally got the chance to watch Scott Kelby teach his Lightroom Live tour (click here if you want to see some photos I took). He’s always on the road teaching the tour and I’m always working so I’ve never been able to catch it. He was in our backyard the other day (Tampa Convention Center) so I went over to watch.
