Socal Photog Shootout – Irvine Regional Park

Whoa, first blog post on the new blog!  So far so good!

If you’re reading this and it’s NOT September 2009 anymore, basically here’s the deal-  I’ve been blogging for like, (counts on fingers) six or seven years on my old blog that was hosted by Xanga.  Xanga used to be a popular wedding photographer community, back in 2003 or whenever it was.  If you’re on Xanga and would like to peruse the “good ‘ol days”, add me as a friend and send me a message.  :-)  THIS shiny new blog is hosted by WordPress and should run much smoother and coordinate with my main website much better.

Anyways, back to regular programming…

The August Photog Shootout was another totally awesome success!  I had such a great time, and I think / hope that everybody else did too.  I’m looking forward to the next GTG…  Be sure to connect with Hanssie, and join the Facebook Groups! (There are two. One for SoCal, one for the nationwide network that SoCal is part of…)

Take care,


By the way, this shot was made with a Nikon D300, Nikon 24mm manual focus, Quantum Q-flash, Pocket Wizard.  The sunset was going crazy and I totally winged it.  Just guessed at the flash power, composed the shot, then dialed my aperture until the flash exposure was correct.  Luckily the sky came out nice!  No, I did not photoshop the colors, that was the actual sunset.  This image doesn’t even really do the colors justice…  :-)
