On a side note, I installed lightroom and am trying to figure it out. It's a a whole different beast from CS3 but I am VERY impressed with how it handles large amounts of RAW files and allows for quick edits and batch work. I will use it for sure but all the serious edits still will be done in CS3....adobe products are awesome!! :)

I love when I find sweetness about photoshop and learn new techniques. I hope it makes my work have a new look and bring me to a new level. Lets just say a I got hands on a high level master of photoshop's tutorials.....actions and wisdom. (Drool) I feel like Neo on the Matrix downloading all that info....what a rush!!! :) hehehehhe

Today I am shooting with Joanne, we have shot together in the past and she is a part of a modelling contest in Alberta called Alberta's next top model.
I need to get my Alien Bee wireless trigger system working so I'll just post this picture from Cap Ex a few nights ago and get to work. Nahla wanted to sleep in but I had to wake her up. I am a good procrastinator.....always putting things off that need getting done. :)

A great singer, just a girl and her guitar. :) Beautiful song.
On the musical scene, I went to CapX with Tanya and Michelle. Michelle is a HUGE Joan Jett fan and was loving the concert. I can't say I am a massive fan but Joan Jett is one person I think of as a rock legend. She just seems very hard working and obviously still enjoys performing. The concert ended with a massive shower of rain that sent everyone running for the exits and shelter. My camera bag got soaked but the 40D stayed dry. I also got security coming to me before her show even started telling me I could take pictures with my lens. I found that funny, considering my lens doesn't take pictures....it definately helps for pictures but isn't what really takes them. Anyway, she told us that it was "a professional lens" and no "professional lenses were allowed"....however, small point and shoot cameras were allowed, cellphones and basically every other small recording device known to man was allowed.

I am going to start messing with HDR images as I discovered some news about them and am excited to start playing with them.

It was a long day, very hot but was a lot of fun to do the photos. I broke a record I'll prob never break again, over 20gigs worth of images, well over 10 memory cards full (hugs laptop). I hope the shots will all work out....it was very fun though...even if a bit stressful. I always get a bit nervous with a wedding, considering the couple is trusting you to capture the day and not miss those once and a lifetime moments. I love the chance to do it but wow...it's a bit of pressure...heheheh.
Once again thanks to Shantelle and Joshua and your bridal party, family and everyone that welcomed us to join the day. We loved the food but admit that drive to Vegreville is kinda long and rough for old folks like us...hee hee.
Here are a few 1st edits to get a feel for the day.....
