Photo Tip Friday #2 See the Possibilities

When I was in school I learned that the number 1 rule in real estate was location, location, location. You can also apply this in photography. Whenever I'm driving around I'm always looking for cool locations. It may not be what you might think. An old shipping container or abandoned equipment can make great pictures. I love to look for things that have color or texture. You just need to train your eye to see the possibilities. So next time your driving around keep a look out for something that you find interesting.

Photo tip Friday #1 turn your garage into a studio

Yes, I know it's Sunday but better late than never. Did you know your garage is a great place to take pictures? I just put up a back drop and let all the sun light filter into my garage. Because the sun light is coming directly into your garage you'll get beautiful even light over your subject and the concrete floor makes a great reflector. During the day is great time to try this when the sun is directly over us and it's to bright to take pictues outside. Just make sure to look at the floor and place your subject in the shadow part of the floor not the direct sunlight.

Here is a few pictures that I took in my garage. Give this a try and let me know how it turns out. Good Luck!!!
This last images is Gabe's letting me know that he is done with pictures.
