After many many many months of designing, scrapping, designing, scrapping, developing, scrapping, designing (you get the picture) here is the new website!!

I thought I would kick start the new design with a new post of my two dogs, Jimi & Daisy. They are Boston Terriers and the best dogs ever. This shot of them sums up their personalities perfectly. Jimi is full of energy and always has to be up in your face licking it. Daisy is the exact opposite. She does have energy but she is very shy.

In terms of tech for this shot it was simple. I didn’t even shoot in RAW. This is a JPEG with B&W conversion and some dodging and burning. I didn’t set up to take the shot. I was playing with my new camera and 24mm lens, taking photos of random parts of our living room. Jimi decided he had an interest in photography and started licking the camera. He was hooked on the first lick and couldn’t take his eyes off it. So I took advantage of his undivided attention and snapped a couple of shots. This was one of them.

All I am going to say about my new camera is that it blows me away every time I use it.

    I love the new site design and am especially fond of the new launch photo, since I happen to know how much of a diva the Jimis was during the shoot!!

    So… more info the new camera… hmmmmm… I am not going to give exact details as I don’t think anyone should spend as much money on a camera as I have. It is ridiculous and I am also kinda embarrassed!!

    My advice is get an OK camera body and spend all your money on a good lens.

    I would suggest a Nikon D3100 and a 50mm 1.4 AF-S lens as a started kit. After you have played with that little lot your next purchase should be an SB600 flash unit or the new SB700 flash unit.

    That is it for now. Email me if you want more advice.
