Hanging out at Haven

I thought I'd put up a fun video our friend Joshua Pittman shot of us at Haven this past June. I can't tell you how much fun we had meeting new friends and talking photography. Josh followed us around and shot random footage so we would always have a memory of our trip to the A-T-L! :) ShootFLYShoot from The Bearded Man Film Co. on Vimeo. I'm working on a post about focal length that I'll be posting in a couple of days, until then I hope you guys and gals are having a great week!

A Day of Photography

Every once in a while Josh and I will round up some friends and we'll take a trip to somewhere interesting to spend the day shooting pics. A couple of months ago we decided to check out a small festival called Doo-Nanny. We had absolutely no idea what to expect, but we ended up having a ball! We met all kinds of interesting people and ate until we almost popped. Here's a short video and a few pics we shot that day... Josh was shooting with a medium format film camera, and I used a Canon 7D digital camera.... We're looking forward to speaking and taking more photos at the Haven Conference next week in Atlanta. Hope to see you there!

Josh and I have been friends for 15 years, and I respect him and his photography work so much. He shot this photo of my parents a few months ago using a medium format film camera... I got pretty choked up when it popped up on my monitor for the first time. Such a powerful, powerful photo! Ansel Adams once said, "a photograph is usually looked at- seldom looked into", but I see a story every time I look into this one. It has a beginning, a middle, and a happily ever after that I can feel all the way to my core. It's layered with warmth & joy, and when I look at it, I realize, this picture wasn't only created because of what happened on the inside the camera that day. It was created because of what was happening all [...]
