Trazi Harvest Party '08

Hi all... I finished and posted a few images from the annual Harvest Party at Trazi Farm tonight. They can be found here. The password hasn't changed (but will shortly). Enjoy, and be well.

site work

All truly photography related endeavours are currently on hold as I do a lot of behind-the-scenes tinkering with the website. Most changes are geared toward protection of the galleries from unwanted guests and protection of the images and their copyright. The only change you are likely to notice as a visitor to the galleries is the addition of a watermark in the lower right corner of most images. These watermarks do not appear on prints ordered from the website.

Another huge bit of behind-the-scenes upgrading is the way images are printed. My host company (SmugMug) has paired up with two professional labs to make your prints look stellar. They are now using EZ Prints and Bay Photo for the actual production of prints. I expect beautiful results. I have some samples on order now, and I can't wait to receive them.

Back to the photography by this weekend, I hope.

Playing with light

One of my two favorite models joined me this evening for one of my first attempts at controlled "studio-style" lighting. I'm quite please with the results. 5 new images are posted on the first page of peanut's gallery. Enjoy! Here is my favorite:

ZQ's first birthday

Though I had previously posted the images from ZQ's first birthday party, tonight I got around to the pictures from his actual birthday a couple of days earlier. Have a look at one handsome one year old! The first 14 pictures are the new ones.

New Videos up!

Although I won't be linking them here in the blog, there are two new videos up in the "moving pictures" gallery. The first is from this summer at Davis Farm. It is our daughter enjoying a pony ride (her second, actually... she's a pro now). The second is from Christmas morning.

Happy Friday!

Dance Class

I've posted a few images from Peanut's dance class... they appear in two different galleries. A few are in her gallery, and a few in the family album. I did this because her gallery is dedicated to images of her only, and other people were in a few of the images.

Here are a couple of my favorites.

Andrew's 6th Birthday

Tonight I posted the few images I was able to capture at my God Son's 6th Birthday Party. See that water slide? Cool, huh? Just remember, if you have to rush to the top to rescue your 2 year old daughter, don't forget to take your brand new iPhone out of your pocket before you do. Doh!

So, as you may have guessed, our stay was cut a little short at this event. We did have a great time while it lasted, however. Andrew always knows how to throw a kid's party. Images can be found here.

Onward! I'm now moving into images from September '08. I'm not even going to mention catching up again.
