About two weeks ago I got a call from a model I had worked with in the past saying that she was setting up an event at a new studio that was was opening down in Provo. We talked a bit about what was going on and she asked me to come down and do some shooting with some other photographers and models. I don’t think I fully understood exactly what the event was going to entail but I agreed to come if I had time and if school permitted and didn’t really think much about it.
A few days before the actual event I get a call from her asking if I’m coming and that, if I do, she’d arranged for me to be one of the main photographers there and have my own area to setup and shoot in. Cool right? The whole studio area was larger than I had imagined it would be, but I had a nice large area to setup in, plenty of rooms to stick my lights wherever I wanted to and plenty of photographers and models coming and going from my station.
All in all, a good night, met some good photographers and models with the added bonus of lots of good pictures.
It’s now official! White Cherry Studios is now going live! I’m throwing most if not all my wedding, portrait, and other photographic work under that name so that I can separate out the graphic design, development and other random stuff that goes on at my blog here. Plus it gives me more of an entity to deal with as opposed to a singular person which will enable me to expand it further when and where I choose to.
I’ve been in one of those odd moods lately where I’ve not been satisfied with anything with what I’ve been doing… so tonight I spent a lot of time in lightroom tinkering with all the different develop settings. So essentially I have a lot of photos with a huge range of moods and colors and feelings.
So… here’s some of the results of a night of shooting out with a bunch of friends and and a lot of playing in the darkroom:
I caught someone else taking pictures:
And yes, yes I know, I let people look at my camera, view all the pictures. Sometimes I even let them take a turn being the photographer with the wicked awesome camera ;) Soo… Somehow it seems it always ends up pointed back at me (I get the feeling that people want some sort of retribution for all the pictures I take ;) )
