Twin Tech Party

\

Things have been busy and busy is good! I’m just putting the finishing touches on the Bozzuto set and I’m looking to get permission from the company to post a few of the pics for my portfolio. I’m especially proud of the product that I’m turning into them. For the last couple weeks I’ve been a Photoshop machine, and with the addition of CS3 and Lightroom to my arsenal, I’m really feeling like this is all coming together!

This time last week I shot an event for a good friend of mine, Peter Corbett. There’s a large gallery posted of the event on the site and if you get a chance, check ‘em out! Also, I had my first student…apprentice…I don’t know? How about another friend of mine, Amit Mehta volunteered to help me out with this shoot. He’s got a tremendous eye and just as soon as he learns his Cannon 5D inside and out, he will be well on his way to becoming a great photographer.

The event was a lot of fun for me since I got to take pics, meet a whole plethora of people, and expand my photography network…all good things. The crowd was real easy to shoot and since this was my second time with the “tech community,” I ran into some familiar faces that helped me wrangle people for shots. Good tip for any aspiring event photographers that happen to stumble across this blog; when shooting events where alcohol is being supplied…hold off on the group shots as long as possible. Shoot candids with a telephoto lens until people get a chance to get a couple drinks in them, it makes things drasitcally easier and everybody loves you for some reason???

At the end of the night I had just the right amount of shots and post processing wasn’t to lengthy since I shot in JPEG because it was a “charity gig” for me. I want to take the time out to say thanks to Peter and Amit and that I am looking forward to working with them again in the future.
