I haven’t spent much time at home the last couple of weeks. We did two family reunions and I did a week long Sales Meeting for work in San Diego. 2 days at home and tomorrow we’re leaving for Oregon for our last vacation trip of the summer. Out of money and out of PTO so its time to call it quits.
I did a lot of shooting. I took about 240 portraits and 12 group shots at the sales meeting. I’ve been spending a lot of time cleaning those up – just finished tonight. This was my first time shooting outside with a light and umbrella. It went great until the cloud cover broke. I was shooting so fast that I didn’t notice until way late and I shot a bunch way over exposed. I managed to save them all, although some are a little interesting. Kind of a high key look. And the colors are very vibrant. We learn best from our mistakes. I did much better the second day – chimped after every shot and adjusted when I started to lose my whites.
The sales meeting was at the La Costa Resort in Carlsbad. While I was wondering around I shot a few shots of the resort.
We’re doing the Oregon coast this week end. I hope to get some good shots.
