Over the past several months, I have repeatedly performed a cardinal sin against myself.  You see, I have very talented friends.  Absolutely, incredibly talented friends.  I found myself looking through their work, and others [wedding] work, going WTF…how in the heck did they do this, or that, or any of it?  Dumbfounded.  Due to that, my blogging has ceased.  I have weddings in the queue just chilling.  Then it hit me yesterday – thankfully.  Something, I always tell OTHERS while mentoring…YOU DO YOU.  Don’t look at other wedding work.  Go back to what inspired you in the past, at the beginning.  So, I looked through several of my weddings in 2013 and found so many solid moments in each.  As you can see in the next few blog posts, I love hands, gestures, expressions, light, landscape, details, youth and a number of other things.  That is what has drawn me to wedding photography.  Lesson learned: You Do You, Joseph.

Welp.  I’m back from WPPI in Vegas.  I’m not sure how we survived, but we did.  It was an amazing trip in so many ways.  An emotional rollercoaster arriving for the Print Competition and seeing a few of my prints judged; live and in person.  I’m not sure there is a more terrifying thing than that.  Moving on..

Recently, I purchased the Leica D’Lux 6 camera for just random fun trips, and nights out with friends.  I really can’t say more about this camera than its incredibly impressive.  I’ll let you see for yourself but for a “point and shoot”, its latitude in post is quite surprising.  Check it out…

To all the people who I met, or spent time with at WPPI.  You are all 12’s!  Amazing, ridiculously kind wonderful people..
