Pic Of the Day 1-25-2011

Las Vegas, 2001. I went to the WEVA (Wedding and Event Videographers Association) conference. I know, sounds exciting, right? This was the view from my room. I need to go back, soon.

Pic Of the Day 1-22-2011

Four Generations

Today's photo of the day is very dear to my heart. It honors four beautiful women, inside and out. Clockwise, from top left, Nell Trapp, Her granddaughter and our dear friend Ashley Bowler Matthews, Ashley's mother Judi Bowler and Ashley's daughter Aven. Judi passed away yesterday after a battle with lung cancer, two days after her 59th birthday. I shot a series of photos back in the Fall when she first got sick, and this particular photo was Ashley's idea, and I am so glad she suggested this to me!

Ms. Nell, Ashley and Aven now have a beautiful new angel in heaven watching over them. I am blessed to have known you, Ms. Judi. Fear not, for you have a lot of very caring people watching after your mother, daughters and granddaughter. Say hello to Mikey for us;)

I have been playing around in Photoshop, giving photos a look of tilt shift photography. This is my first attempt, a photo from a MS Braves game August 21, 2009.

Pic Of The Day 1-13-2011

OK, new year, new Macbook PRO, new copy of Photoshop CS5, and a renewed sense of focus creativity....I am going to start doing a picture of the day on my blog. Now I am in no way delusional enough to believe that I can have the discipline to update this daily, but I will make every effort to update it as often as possible. So, this is the first installment.

Meet Carrie Holliday Hamilton, longtime friend, graduate of MUW and fiercely loyal Widespread Panic fan! Carrie and her husband Ray, who has a Culinary Arts degree from MUW, own Anthony's Market in West Point, MS. I was sent there on assignment last night to cover Blues Night for a new magazine that is being launched by The Commercial Dispatch. Blues Night is every Wednesday from 7-10. The music is great, and the food is unbelievable. So check it out! This is one I caught of Carrie just sort of relaxing before the music started.

Tech info: Canon EOS 5d Mark II, F5.o, Shutter 1/60, ISO 1000, Canon 580 EX Flash bounced off of a wall.
