Last Lego shot for a few weeks, this one is inspired by both Easter and the Walking Dead. I thought zombie faces might be pushing it too far. While looking for menacing Lego heads in the ones we have I noticed a pattern that most of the mean ones have beards. A theme that I found disturbing… maybe it is time to shave for the spring. Hope you all enjoy the Walking Dead season finale, uhm, I mean have a great Easter Sunday!

This is another shot that has kicked around for a while, been part of my sketch book of ideas. Would not have worked with a regular carton of eggs, so I took a trip to BJ’s last night and grabbed 5 dozen.  I was asked twice on the way from the register to my truck if I was coloring all these eggs. My quick answer of “uhm, no.” seemed to puzzle both, or maybe it was the look of “why are you talking to me?”. Either way none of the eggs have been colored. I am not going to take the time to do the math but 5 dozen eggs is a lot of eggs. And seems to cause an issue when you buy them without telling your wife not to buy the standard egg supply for the house… we have a lot of eggs now.  After the shot we hard-boiled half of them. That made for some cool macro shots. I have another Legoboy shot planned for tomorrow involving candy. Sorry for those who do not like the toy shots (yes there are some out there, and they have told me, so I know who they are), but I have a Lego Bunny Suit, I have to shoot it on Easter, it only makes sense.

For Being…
March 29, 2013

Please allow me a moment of self promotion. After-all, there is a business behind all this. It does not always feel that way, my job tends to be more fun than work, but I do spend time on marketing, promotion, scheduling, editing… you would be surprised how little time is actually spent shooting photos. It is all worth it though, especially when the clients are happy. This check is the final payment from my wedding a few weeks ago, and I asked them if I could use it as a photo, the “for” line cracked me up. I am constantly in need of testimonials, if I have ever shot a photo of, for, near you I would be happy to take a line or two for a page on my website. It can be quick and easy.  I mean this testimonial is great.. and it only really has 4 words, my name and the “for” line… easy right? While you’re here, check out some more shots from the wedding.

The Ladybug
March 28, 2013

This is my ladybug, I named her after the American icon, Kenny Rogers, because anyone who is anyone knows who Kenny Rogers is and if you are going to have a pet ladybug, she might as well have a famous name. I found Kenny Rogers and many of her friends in a conference room today at work. An empty cup and cellophane with air-holes later and I have a new pet.  Kenny Rogers really did not want to have her picture taken, always moving around, turning away from the camera, walking up things and continually leaving the good light, but we made it work.  We got this one shot, where for a second, Kenny Rogers was looking right at me. I let Kenny Rogers go after I was done.  I will miss Kenny Rogers, but I will always have the other Kenny Rogers singing “Lady(bug)”… Click here to enjoy the timeless Kenny Rogers hit while you look at the photos, it is as if Kenny Rogers is singing about my relationship with my ladybug Kenny Rogers.  “You’re the love of my life, you’re my lady(bug)”
