Meet my dear friend Renee…nurse, singer, and one of the best souls on the planet.  We love you girl.

While we were doing headshots we sold a condo……

Bought a house….

Moved (there are no pictures of the moving……it wasn’t pretty).

Did a maternity session with an absolutely gorgeous mother and daughter and caught this precious little moment….

My sweet pooch Frei (pronounced like a french fry) was featured in Atlanta magazine as “Pet of the Month” for their February issue…isn’t he adorable???

Had a great South Atlanta Flickr (SAF) Administrator shoot with my buddies down south of town.  We had the great opportunity to photograph artist Kawai Laurencin.  I literally had to pause for a moment during this shoot to just pick my jaw up off the ground…his talent is just beyond belief and he couldn’t be a more warm natured soul.

Did a group shoot with South Atlanta Flickr

I also became volunteer coordinator for Atlanta Photography Exhibit….get involved and check us out!  We have several exhibits and fun events coming up this year.  Check out the calendar at the website here and send me an email at meg@futurephotogs.org if you are interested in volunteering!

And now……a moment to recover!

About a month or so ago I met fellow photographer Steven Skelton at a mixer at Zack Arias‘s studio.  Since meeting we have kept in touch, chatted on Facebook, followed each other’s work, and now have had the chance to shoot together!  Steven put together a strobist group in Athens, Georgia (Go Dawgs) and they had their first meeting at the Oneta Building on the outskirts of town.  Strobist style shooting just basically means shooting with off camera flash and can give you some really cool effects.  Most of these shots were done with my 580EXII flash and a 60 inch umbrella to soften the light.

Thanks so much to my dear friend Renee for joining us as a model……she was a total trooper.  She’s probably feeling like she has whiplash from a car crash after we made her flip her hair over about 15 times to get this shot…….

Thought some of you might enjoy a video that a friend and fellow photog sent out today.  Jason Morrison, otherwise know to me as “Dubtastic” posted this video he created today to Facebook.  Jason is a fantastic photographer and all around great guy.  He has been active in photography for about 5 years, mixing in his background and professional experience as a graphic designer.  His post production skills are I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E.  I was lucky to meet Jason at a South Atlanta Flickr meeting at Nash Farm Battlefield earlier this year.  The video and shoot was all done in and around Studio 42 in Locust Grove, Georgia.  I can’t recommend this studio enough.  I was out there last weekend for a shoot and had a great experience. I love having a studio that you can shoot in and then walk outside to some other interesting locations!  Enjoy the movie!

The OneLight workshop was incredible.  Zack Arias’s approachable down to earth attitude was really refreshing. The philosophy behind the workshop is simple.  Learn all you can do with just one light, the use of some different modifiers, and full manual settings and master it.  Zack goes through all of his modifiers, lighting equipment, and techniques in a very hands on manner with a small group (there were 12 people in our workshop) until all of your questions are answered…….seriously…….we were there until 3am.  This workshop was money well spent for me.  I would highly recommend his workshops to any intermediate level photographers out there, but you better sign up early…….all of his workshops are selling out.  Enjoy the pics!

Ahhh……the wide open spaces of South Atlanta Flickr.  The talented Jason Morrison and Julie Harnage were nice enough to put together a fabulous afternoon for their photography friends and models.  With the use of three different studio setups and a little walk around the square in Locust Grove we were able get a great variety of shots.  This was a great experience (even though I was exhausted from yard work all morning) and  look forward to the next shoot (without the morning of yard work before the shoot).  : )

I’ve been wanting now for several months to get to the “Prison Farm” in East Atlanta.  After several email exchanges with Flickr friends we got a group organized to go and were blocked by city employees at the entrance.  However, we found a great alternative.  This is an old abandoned bank in the same part of town.  Enjoy the pictures of Reggie, Aglae, and my Flickr friends.  The first picture was taken with my camera, so I had to improvise to look like a photographer (that’s me in the bottom right corner)!
