Simulation in life

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!!!

We are jumping right into the fire the next two weeks with all the different gigs that we have going on. The craziness is continuing, but we’re not complaining. Most of this past weekend has been spent getting caught up on a number of things from editing to bookwork and all things in between. When things are slow, you’re looking for anything that you can do to keep from being bored. When it’s as crazy busy as it’s been these past few weeks and as crazy busy as it’s going to be the next few weeks, there aren’t enough hours in the day to get caught up! The good thing about a weekend like this one was being able to get pretty well caught up on all those things that really do need to get done before starting a new work week. We’ll start rocking this morning with a clean slate and that’s a very good thing!

We are sharing a photo from one of our friends that we’ve been shooting with for a number of years. Simformotion is a local Peoria company that makes simulators for clients like Caterpillar. These simulators are great for training new equipment operators and help companies save a lot of money and that’s sure important in today’s world!

Here’s one of our many shots from our day spent with Simformotion.

It’s time for us to get busy, so we hope that you have a great week and thanks for checking out our work!!!

Is lighting is becoming a lost art?

Monday morning Corpus Christi, Tx. greetings to one and all!!!!

I’ve talked for a long time about the lost art of doing lighting! It’s something that we did before the days of digital photography and it seems like we do it less and less nowadays. Don’t get me wrong, I’d never go back to shooting film and I’m so happy to have a digital image that I can massage and manipulate in the computer. So much of the photography that I now do wouldn’t be possible without shooting digitally! I just miss that we would take time in the past to do some really nice lighting on a product or a person and now we just kind of bang it out in a more photojournalistic style (Thank God I have a degree in Photojournalism from Bradley University)!

I was very fortunate to have one of my clients Simformotion allow me a little time to do some lighting on one of their simulators. The best part is that we were able to come away with some really nice shots of their products without spending a ton of time! The client was happy and I was happy!

Here’s one of our shots from the day showing what can be done if you just take a little time to do something right!

I hope that you’re going to have a wonderful week and thanks for taking the time to check out my work!!!!!
