Photographic Favorites From the Year

August 11th, 2010

This last Christmas I gave myself a Pentax K-x entry-level DSLR as a Christmas present. I’m enjoying learning more about photography, and it’s been a lot of fun capturing events in my life.  Here are some of my favorites from this year (each of these photos is a link into the set, if you want more context):

Andy & Tierney’s Wedding

Due to a clerical error, I was invited to the Schatz wedding.  It was great!

Dip

The Band

Champagne

Lighting Fun

I picked up some lighting gear–Elinchrom D-Lite 2s and YN-460 II speedlights–which have been a lot of fun to play around with.  Most of the resulting photos aren’t posted, but to give you an idea:

Head Shot

Crystal is Reading Your Mind

Droplets

CrossFit

I’ve taken a handful of CrossFit-related photos. I’d love to do a full photo shoot at the gym sometime, with a portrait/lighting setup to catch people post-workout.

Awesome Double Unders!

Tear!

Hammertime

Dodgeball

I tried my hand at some action shots for dodgeball. Boo, florescent lighting! The last shot is from trampoline dodgeball, which is the best thing ever.

Jeff's Throw

Opening Rush

Intimidation

Trips

I usually take the camera and snap some random shots on trips. A sampling!

Playing

Smell the Flowers

Bowling Pose

Arizona Life

And a variety of photos from life in Arizona, including cats. No gallery is complete without cats.

Licking Chops

Sugary Sweets

Dad and Vicky

Phoenix as Ocean

Office Sunset

Dave Hard at Work

Swinging

Filthy Kitty

Orange Goatee
