Nathaniel / Low Light Experiment

I wasn't sure if any of these would even turn out. I am still trying to learn how to balance my settings in very low light situations. So far, YouTube videos have helped and many far more talented photographer friends have given me a few tips. Still, I learn best by actually doing it. This thrown together shoot was a way to apply some new techniques I had learned.

Alex / In Branson We Trust

Many people of heard of Branson, but few have been there. Before I had ever ventured there myself, I had thought of Branson as smaller Las Vegas, but without gambling or the ability to drink on the streets. I was wrong about Branson being like Vegas, though I did see a few drunks roaming around. In many respects, these two very different cities have some resemblance...lots of shows, amusement parks, and a weird amount of hotels. That being said, you have to take Branson for what it is...total kitsch. Alex and I took a random day trip just for a change of scenery. I snapped a few photos while we explored, and these are my favorites. Would I recommend a visit to Branson? Sure, so long as you're located within 45 miles like I am.   Ride some go-karts and get your putt-putt on. Read on to see more photos!

Winter Sunsets in Chicago

Chicago is one of my favorite places to visit, even in the winter time. These were taken during a short walk outside of my hotel. I love the mix of architectural styles that dominate the skyline.

Monday Morning Blues

I'll tell you right now, I am NOT a morning person. It takes me a long time to wake up, no matter how much sleep I had the previous night. Mornings don't do a lot for me - they're typically cold and I've never been a fan of breakfast, even as a child. I get most of my energy in the evening, after 7pm. That's when I am the most creative and the most alert. This isn't to say I slack off during the day, but I would be a much better person if all my interactions with people happened after 7. I do envy those morning people, however. They seem to be the people with their shit together and the happiest. Perhaps I could train my body to become a morning person? The first step would probably be to stop working on blog posts after midnight...which I am doing at this very  moment. Hey look, it's Tuesday!

Alex / Smoke Break

These shots are fun because they were just test shots for makeup for an upcoming shoot that never actually came to fruition.

Joshua / Spring Cleaning

Josh went to school here in Springfield, but moved to New York after graduation to pursue his career in the theatre. I was so excited that we managed to get together on one of his visits back home. It was after dark, and I normally prefer to shoot in natural light seeing as I'm an amateur and still learning. But this was a fun experiment with flash photography, and I like how these turned out.

Matt / Warm November Vibes

It's been such a warm november, if it weren't for the leaves on the ground you wouldn't hardly believe it was autumn. I'm not complaining though, I want to hold onto these warmer days while they last. I'm not a fan of the snow or ice at all.
