Busy weekend!

Yes… I’m still alive!  It’s been a long time since my last post, with the holidays and taking some time off I’ve gotten a little lazy.  I was pretty busy this weekend, doing several shoots and an impromptu shoot at a skate park.  Here are a few shots from the weekend.




Derby Dames in Toyland!

Two weeks ago was the final bout of the year for Billings Roller Derby Dames.  The money raised went to help support the “Road Dogs Toy Run”, the ladies will be shopping at Wal-Mart tomorrow in their skates.  Here are a few of my favorite shots from that night!  To see all of the photos please check out my facebook page.



I needed a volunteer for a shoot so I could improve on a technique that uses small flashes combined with daylight, Katie was there to help out!  I just finished an assignment on the road where my studio lights arrived a few days late for a two-day shoot, not wanting to ever be in that position again I decided to get more comfortable using the small Canon speedlites typical seen on top of the camera.  This was the first time where I  focused on trying this technique on every single shot, usually it’s been  just an after thought for me.  I can tell you after today’s shoot it will be top of mind every time I go out!  If you’re on facebook, please check out my page and “like it”

Alice in Wonderland…. Derby Style!

One of the Billings Roller Derby Dames wanted a unique derby portrait, so last night we went to a local park and shot Alice in Wonderland… derby style!  Desiree had all the props including a pet bunny, who was actually easier to shoot than I though.  I just bought a battery pack that allowed me to take my studio lights in the field and this was my first test.  I was very happy with the way it worked out and it will definitely open up a lot more possibilities with my outdoor portraits!
