Test shot

I was looking back through some stuff I shot on Sunday when this shot sorta caught my eye. This shot is from when I was setting up and taking a couple of test shots during a shoot for a local recording/performing artist.

Iron horse

I was going through some stuff I shot a while ago (anything over a year ago is a while ago) and came across some train stuff I just never got around to doing anything with. Here's one example...

Opening Blog

Giving the blogging thing a go was something I've toyed with in the past but dismissed as being another thing I just don't have time for. (As it is I tend to stay up to the wee hours editing what I shoot.) At this point I have no idea how often I'll be posting or what I'll be posting. Time will tell!

Shooting when it's -10F outside is not the sort of thing I'd normally suggest, but I had something I wanted to try that would only work when it was really cold out. Unfortunately it was a bit too windy to allow what the model (Desire') and I had originally wanted to shoot. After driving around looking for a suitable spot and finding none, Desire' and I scratched our original plan and decided to shoot closer to the studio.

I decided against using gloves as it's difficult to manipulate photo gear with them on, so I was working barehanded. Needless to say, I had to make a couple of warm-up trips to the car before I was ready. For her part, Des did a great job acting like it wasn't cold out. (Not easy given the circumstances.)

Below is a sample:

It was a unique experience shooting out behind an old building after dark in -10F temps with huge freight trains thundering by periodically. Definitely one shoot I'll remember for awhile!
