Orange Gel, Tungsten's hell

Yeah, I can't seem to stop with the truly sad cheesy titles.

I need to curb my blog, for real.

Anyhow, my select is from my tungsten take, the wedding shower for Lydia Carey, whom is marrying Travis Coulliette.

They asked me to be their wedding photographer after they saw the pictures I took for the assignment, which I found really flattering and considered it an honor to accept their request, but really I'm just scared shitless about ruining someone's special day.

Travis Coulliette joins his fiancĂ©e, Lydia Carey, at her wedding shower after Lydia has finished opening her gifts and playing games with the other ladies in attendance. “I’m so pissed at you, I heard that you got the question wrong about why I wanted to marry you,” Travis says, “She told them that she had no idea why I wanted to marry her, NO IDEA.”
When asked what the real reason is, Travis responds matter-of-factly, “Because I wanted to spend the rest of my life with the woman of my dreams, that’s why.”

Direct your flash-ttention to the front of the screen

What a terrible pun.

I didn't think we would be needing a lighting diagram for this assignment, so I will just say that I bounced my flash off ceilings, windows, myself, and walls.

During direct flash, I directly flashed.

My selects were from the direct flash portion.

They're of John Burr, a Columbia resident and employee of Storage-mart.
He makes bon-fires on the Missouri river.
It was SO much fun to watch, especially when the ladies with him named Erica and Jessica, made bombs out of tin foil, toilet bowl cleaner, and two liter bottles.

The cleaner would create a chemical reaction within the bottle that would turn the tin foil into gas and then expand the bottle until it exploded.
The sound was so loud that it reverberated off of the mountains and hills surrounding the river and echoed back like thunder.

Check out the photos, I'll add one of the bomb so that you guys can see that also.

Shot one: Let the conflagration begin

Shot two: John Burr reveals himself

Okay, I tried adding a shot of "da bomb," but that's definitely not working right now.
Good times.

over and out

Metal for your mouth

This is my metal picture, a S'mores marshmallow roaster.
Three hours went into this shot and another three into Kyle's glass photo.


Check out the lighting diagram, kiddies:
