So I’ve been meaning to get these pictures edited, and I finally have. (And got the CDs sent off to thier respective families). These are pictures of my cousins kids, one on my dad’s side and one on my mom’s side. If you want to see more, they also have Flickr Slideshows of a select few of them. The first two on Cousin Joe’s pictures have been fully edited. The rest all had basic edits done to them in Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4.0, and I’m really enjoying the way CS6 saves things. Makes it really nice to work with, since it lets you keep working while its saving. 🙂 Still need to work on the Lightroom watermark thing, though it looks like it could be a handy function.
Anyways, thought I’d show these, since I do take portraits to. (But don’t worry, up next we’ll be back to photoillustration). 🙂
Cousin Joe’s pictures:
Uh… the last one is me being swarmed by the little kids.

For advanced color portrait we needed to take pictures of high school seniors. Both to fulfill the class assignment and to get examples for my senior portraits business I’m starting up, I took pictures of four seniors for free, giving them one hour each for shooting (both inside the library with my alien bee lights and outside) and 10 fully retouched photos on a disk for them to print as they like.

Chelcy’s pictures were the second shoot I did of my free senior pictures shoot for examples over Spring Break. This time it was easier to get everything set up, and my Canon Rebel XS cooperated with me this time. I set up in the large room downstairs in the library, and the size difference made a great deal of help. It kept me from fumbling into things or hitting the background stands against the ceiling, a major help in trying to get everything set up quickly. It still took a little time to sit up, but I was able to leave it there for my next shoot with Lisa and Heather afterwards.

I’m planning on starting up a senior portrait business in Warrensburg this summer, but that means I need more examples to create advertisements and show just what I can do. So over Spring Break I decided to try and photograph some seniors for free- they got a free one hour session and ten fully retouched photos on a CD that they can print themselves or order prints through me.
Since it’s been a while since I’ve been to my hometown, Mom talked to a few people she knew, contacting a homeschooling group that might want senior pictures.
Never underestimate the power of social networks and free sessions. I photographed Jennifer yesterday, and these are a few of the resulting pictures. I also have two photoshoots today, with a total of three people. Another tip worth noting is that it’s always good to have a backup camera and to start setting up early. For some reason my Rebel XS decided it didn’t want to trigger my studio flashes. Luckily the 30D did, and I was able to shoot with that.

For Advanced Color Portrait class, we were supposed to create hollywood lighting using butterfly lighting and Rembrandt lighting. I sided with doing two sets of people (though I did pull in Isaac for a couple shots after Katie’s shoot) and going from there.

These are a few of the production photos I took for University of Central Missouri’s production of The Birds. Due to the nature of multiple things happening on stage at once and the use of acrobatics (the birds flew across the stage, meaning that even certain staged shots had to be moving), I asked Dr. Mollenkamp (the director), if my fiance, Isaac Flint, could help me out in shooting these production shots. Since he’s more familar with the Rebel XS, I shot with the 30D. I gave him the shorter lens, letting him take the wider, full scene shots, whereas I went for the more troublesome closeups. I think about thirty of the hundred-some pictures I turned in to the threatre were shot by him.
To see all hundred-something photos of the colorful performance, see the my Flickr slideshow: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sbibb/sets/72157625754405596/show/
These are the front of house photos I took for University of Central Missouri’s production of The Birds. The play was directed by Professor Mollenkamp, and was their first enviromental play. The costumes and staging was all recycled or reused, and the audience sat in the round to watch the acrobatic antics as the story unfolded. I used the on-camera flash, covered with a piece of clear plastic to soften it for the tech photos, and alien bees for the cast photos.
I intend to upload the production photos in the next couple of days.

Earlier I looked up sites with good senior photos for ideas for the photoshoot I would soon be doing. I now have the product of that photoshoot. It was two days of shooting, multiple outfits and multiple locations. I did various photoediting, and let Eleni and her mom decide which photos they wanted me to edit. It was a sort of special deal since Eleni is my fiance’s sister. I used both H&H Colorlab and Blackriver Imaging to print the photos, along with printing a few photos myself in the school’s lab. As a side note, new customers on Blackriver Imaging do get some nice introductory offers, so it is well worth checking out if you are considering printing soon. I’m not sure if H&H has any introductory offers, as I was going through the school to order the photos.

These are pictures I took of my fiance’s sister for her Prom. Some photos I edited in Photoshop CS4, but I mostly used Lightroom 2.0. I used a Lumedyne coupled with a Alienbee umbrella for a flash.

These are some of the family pictures I took for my cousin during Spring Break. I thought I’d post a few of them for her on Flickr to see while I’m still in the process of editing them.
