I'm inspired by many photographers; how can I not be? There are so many great talents out there doing incredible stuff. However, near the top of my list is Zack Arias, commercial photographer out of Atlanta, GA. He's a pillar in my world of photography; emphasis on 'my'. He's devoted to educating others about the craft of photography and is amazingly, and in some ways, brutal with how candid he is about the business of photography. Zack is also very talented, which is obvious if you get the time to check out his website and blog. For all of these things I am always looking forward to his next blog post and what it might bring.
He recently put out a field guide to lighting that I just purchased and thought I would share with anyone out there that isn't aware of it. Can't wait to get my hands on it and start using it.

I have gotten so behind on my blogging, but I am excited to get caught back up. To kick things off here is a picture of downtown Dallas at night from City Place where I covered a wedding recently. My second photographer and I hung out after the wedding to have fun from the top of the building and get some really cool photographs. Enjoy!
I love blurry lights on a rainy night. I took this picture a couple weeks ago and I started using it as my desktop wallpaper. Click HERE for the really large version. Click on the picture to make it really big after waiting for it to load and then right click it to save to your computer. Enjoy!
I'm getting really excited about photography this year with my first wedding of 2010 coming up this weekend and I, like so many artists, want to take my work to the next level. I want each picture to be better than the last. More than that, I want to try new things and watching this video on street photography is very inspirational. I love this stuff!
Two things happened last weekend.
1. I went to Colorado to shoot a wedding in Vail
2. I got a Nikon 45mm Tilt/Shift Lens
Sooo...I went a little nuts with the Tilt/Shift lens. You can pick those pictures out because there is some blurring in them and it makes things look a little toyish. I think a photographer can definitely overdo it on this lens, but boy it's fun.
