Wow, I have been really busy, both with work and my side photo business. Never thought a hobby would get so much attention! I have been hired by a marketing firm to take some additional photos and given some Image preparation work to do. This Friday I do a marketing shoot for the Local Dentist. Things are looking up! I have also been asked to get more diverse in my portfolio so that I have other photos available for sale, so will start seeing more portrait shots and action photos from me soon!
Well hope everyone is doing well, will try to catch up with you all soon, see you out on the site!
1. Used a wooden stand, placed a pot of ornamental grass on the top.
2. Captured one Mantis and put him on the grass.

4. Used Gary Fongs flash hood to give even lighting throughout the shot.
