The more recent wedding shoots that I’ve been booking have included a set of engagement mini cards in the portrait package. They’re these cool little cards that are printed on both sides in full color and can say whatever information you might like. Since I’ve been working in more panoramic shots into sessions a lot of the times they look pretty cool in the half-business-card size.
This week I finished shooting an engagement session for a close friend Katie and her fiance James. We were able to take photos in downtown Tulsa near Cain’s ballroom and the Center of the Universe, Woodward Park, Central Library, and a few at The University of Tulsa’s McFarlin library. Katie wanted me to try and work in some panoramic shots to the set which turned out pretty cool. Click the photo to be taken to a slideshow with more photos.
Just got done editing a bunch of photos I took during the past few days during the snow and ice storm we’ve been having. Hope you enjoy!
I updated my website, and switched to a new domain name. If you’re reading this the new website should be working and the blog feeds have been updated. My main page is now http://www.rjbphoto.com, it has a little slideshow of my favorite photos. I tried to make something a little more professional looking, taking advantage of all the benefits I’ve gained from using Smugmug over the years. I like that it’s a place that I can put project galleries up in the future. (more…)
Twice a month a forum I regularly post in has a photo contest with a theme idea. For each contest the winner nominates themes for the next round and participants vote on which theme everyone will shoot for. It’s been a great way to try new things and shooting styles since the themes are generally broad in nature: fire, science, automobiles, misplaced, and so on. I went downtown this week to shoot and get ideas for this week’s theme: long exposures. I wasn’t really sure what to do but I’ve been in awe lately of the low hanging clouds that have been blocking some of downtown Tulsa’s taller buildings. I wanted to get a panoramic shot of the Bank of Oklahoma tower with clouds sweeping past it’s logo. (more…)
I got a chance to head out to a different autocross event in Neosho, MO this weekend with a friend who normally races in the NEOklahoma SCCA group. This event was sponsored by the Ozark Mountain Region Sports Car Club of America. It was a Solo2 regional event (the 6th they’ve had this year) and was held in the parking lot of the Crowder Truck Driving School. The weather was mild and it was an interesting track layout that they were able to set up. (more…)
