Have I ever told you how SWEET my job is?!?!? Seriously! I get to do what I love for a living, travel AND work with A-MAZING people! I’m soooooo blessed! This past weekend, I went to L.A. to shoot a wedding with my great friend, Jeffrey of JNP Studios! I think it is absolutely necessary for successful photographers to continue to second shoot at LEAST 1-2 times/year. Why? First, it gives you TOTAL freedom to be creative, test new equipment, try new techniques and ideas without the risk of ‘missing’ anything during the day or feeling obligated to get the ‘safe’ stuff! On this trip, I tested out the new Canon 5D Mark II, challenged myself to shoot with back-focus and manual flash (which I definately need more practice with!), and shot some medium format film with my new Mamiya! I also tested out several of Jeffrey’s lenses and have added some more things to my wish list! ;0) Jeffrey and I had an absolute BLAST at this wedding! The couple was great and we also tried some new LED lights for some night shots! These lights worked SUPER well and a bonus is that they are already white balanced and hold full power for HOURS! ;0) That’s what I’m talking about!
Congratulations to Mario and Julia on their wedding! Thank you SO much for inviting me to be a part of your amazing day! eliesa
