Wind chill? yes, Photos? no.

One of the few photos I got Saturday, it was too incredibly cold to shoot! Piper came to visit from Grand Rapids.  It was so nice to see him.  Even though the weather was bad, the company was more than pleasant.  It was a nice day filled with coffee, tofu burgers, conversations, and cameras.


Wide angle Len has arrived!

I’m not a huge fan on the vignetting the lens leaves, but I cant be to picky considering it was a $10 dollar lens off Ebay.  It’ll get me by in a pinch until I can afford something better, and if anything else I’ll be able to take some creative shots with it. 😀

Day of the dead.

Just some of the Photos I took from our impromptu Day of the dead photo session!

I’d Love to do this again with more props, costumes, and a makeup artist instead of my unsteady hand, and dollar store makeup.

I went to South Haven yesterday to look, and photograph the icy beach with a friend, it was freezing, but totally worth it, there are more photos to come!

Just messing around in photoshop, it’s a boring Wednesday afternoon.
