Lindsay and Austin engagement

I just finished taking Lindsay's bridal photos this week, and because I can't upload those until wedding day, here's a few from their engagement session.

These were in and around the downtown square in Denton, Texas.

Comment Moderation

Someone left three extremely vulgar comments on different posts that were insulting and degrading to both my clients and family. Whoever you are, I hope you see how what you wrote could be extremely damaging to those who might read it. By the way, you're a coward for posting anonymously.

Anyway, I didn't think it would come to this. I highly hate censorship especially in art, but I felt forced to. In fact, had the comments been directed toward me or insulting to me, there would probably be no change. To my other readers, your much appreciated comments and feedback will just take a little longer to post as I will have to approve all comments now.

Swisher bridge night

I took photos of the new Swisher Road toll bridge over lake Lewisville, Texas as it went up, for the drilling company and for the construction company: Jensen. I was also lucky enough to take completed photos. Day and night. See the construction and day shots in the JUMP below.

Night is a relative term. It's always best to shoot at twilight and mix in just a little bit of ambient light. It's a delicate balance, but beautiful when done right.

In our case, we had an absolutely beautiful sunset. Not only that, but I had my favorite pilot: Chris Creamer flying me. Slow shutter speeds in a helicopter are quite tricky as well. I was thrilled with the results. Here's more:

The really neat thing about this bridge is that I take it all the time from my home to pretty much anywhere west of DFW. It's very convenient.
