stay away, Vick

My good friends Ben and Kris just got a couple of puppy dawgs. I snapped a few images of them on my last visit.

'don't play with your food'

I was pondering whether this actually worked or not...then I could hear my good friend Jonathan's voice in my head (laughing heartily). He's a pro audio preservationist and he wasn't nearly as optimistic as I was. Hmmm...I'll have to get a verdict from him before I go out and buy up a bunch of produce.

Nikon D3

...finally Nikon has made it official. This is what looks to be the best Nikon DSLR to date...has some really cool features that my photo-nerd brain find intriguing. Like dual card slots, a crazy-high resolution lcd, better noise reduction (about time), and an ISO range from 100 to 25,600. That's right. ISO 25,600. Although I seriously doubt that images taken at such high ISO levels are usable I find it impressive nonetheless. Other pluses are a much larger view finder and HDMI output, just in case you ever have the urge to view your RAW files on your 60" Hi Def TV. (?)

It'll be interesting to see how this is received come November. Nikon users have been patiently waiting since '04 for significant improvements and it looks like they're here. The D300 looks like it may offer some of the same advantages. Very enticing.

Here are a few shots from Wednesday's engagement session in downtown Denton. These guys are just fun to hang out with...we got some nice images, too:

they laughed at how excited I got about the light:

Zack & Allison

We had a great engagement session Sunday at Ft. Worth's downtown area. The light was incredible and we had some fun! Afterwards, Zack and Alli invited me to join them for dinner at Uno for some great pizza and drinks. We got a few nice shots there as well. I can't wait to shoot their wedding! The ceremony will be at Marty Leonard Chapel...beautiful.

we stop traffic at Lathon Photography!

Bass Hall was too beautiful to pass up:

I'm old school...

...and that's how I like my salsa. If you know me you know I'm a huge salsa fan. When I saw this video I couldn't help it. I had to post it. Just because.

I acquired a taste for the old stuff when I was learning dance. Listening to DJ No2Self's badass vinyl salsa collection nearly every week for two years definitely got me hooked.

The first half of this video features Ismael Rivera's greatness. Definitely old school.
