Challenge and Reward

Last Christmas my wife Lisa, who helps me with my group projects, and I done a photo shoot for a family's three children. We produced a coffee table book for them that they gave away to family members for gifts. Maybe I will link the whole book sometime with their permission but here is the image we used for the book cover.

These kids were a joy to work with; I hope we get a few more of these jobs this year, they are quite challenging and yet rewarding.


  1. That's such a great looking shot...

    Yes, thanks for your advice in previous comment! I believe, that I have to learn use my SB-800 with D80, too!

    Do you have any good pages to recommend, which would be good to check out, for beginners and all those tricks to learn in Photoshop, how to bring depths of photo out etc? :)

  2. One of my favorite sites is http://www.lightroomkillertips.com/, but if you don't use Lightroom then it will not be quite shat you need. Another good site is http://digital-photography-school.com/blog/ for a variety of subjects you would be looking for. Another great resource is http://www.luminous-landscape.com/, but you will have to search the archives as it is a very large and intensive site.

    Besides that, I suggest you use Google and search for things like "Photoshop Tutorials", "Photography Tutorials" and then just read until find places that connect with you and your needs; and don't forget to keep shooting as it will begin to make more sense as you read and try the things you read about.
