Where did all my time go?

So I have finally found the motivation to take a few more steps into video, and the adventure of post-processing video, but it is exactly like I thought it was going to be, alot of research and alot of time. This weekend I played with Final Cut Pro, I learned some quick ways to produce videos straight from the camera to YouTube, and today I have been playing with the Adobe CS5 Suite wanting more out the post-processing experience. I have only just scratched the surface, finding many different workflows with a mixed bag of results. Learning things like this feels like getting lost in the dark really, and when that happens the time flies. Before I knew it, I have neglected to blog, and it is almost midnight. Check out Lianne's blog for examples of some straight to YouTube videos, and my Vimeo for my first solo video post-processing attempt with Adobe After Effects, I will be trying to get one video a night up on Vimeo. Thank God for ESPN Radio. Go Heat!

I had a great weekend, and got to take some pictures and video for Lianne and her new blog. I have been really spending more time in video in an effort to be prepared for her needs for video while developing some in-demand skills for myself with video. It is about time that I start becoming a little more savvy with videos, considering its been over a year since I have gained some serious video equipment and software. Knowing that I will continue to be crunched with time, I pre-selected some photos last weekend for this week's blog.

These photos are from an engagement session I had with a beautiful couple. Paula and James, were great to work with, and their love was extremely evident in our session together. Paula's shy but thoughtful demeanor and James' constant patience and great attitude made this shoot go very smoothly. I was very happy with the results from this session and I absolutely fell in love with this location. I hope you enjoy!

I love being raptured.

So I definitely got raptured this weekend, I don't know about any of you out there, but I am in heaven. Life is good. This post is not the usual for me, a little sexy, a little intimate, a little less of what I usually post, but still tame by most standards. I definitely know that pictures of girls especially ones in bathing suits get alot more attention than other pictures I have posted, so here is a toast to being raptured and living life as though you are in heaven here on earth. While I know that these pictures are not a complete sense of being raptured into heaven, I thought they would rouse some attention. In general this is a study on what will get the attention of the audience of the internet. Have fun, and stay classy. Thanks for checking out the blog! Just love one another, and you too can be raptured.

Sharing Dreams

I have the pleasure to encourage and support someone whom I love and care for very much. It is a dream to share my life and my passions with someone whom I love and feel such mutual unconditional love. While we both pursue our passions, I am continually encouraged and supported. Witnessing someone else pursue their dreams and allowing their dream to influence my dreams has deeply enriched my life. Sharing the excitement with the love and commitment required to follow your dreams is both inspirational and contagious. Today I am sharing a promotion of my girlfriend Lianne, in her debut Blog and the beginning of the next chapter in her life after graduating college. I am blessed by her presence in my life and grateful to witness the pursuit of her dreams! Here are just a handful of pictures that I have had the opportunity to take while she works with such majestic and royal animals. She has a passion to train and teach others to develop stronger relationships with their horses. Focusing on natural horsemanship she has been generous in her time and to bring me alongside her while she develops her passion and pursues her dreams. Please enjoy the pictures and check out her debut blog!

Best Buddies Polo Experience 2011

Just before I stopped blogging, I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Best Buddies Polo Experience, I have been wanting to get out to see a polo match, but just hadn't made the right timing and connection to get up to the Wellington, FL area for a match. My good friend John Arroyo works for Best Buddies and invited me up to take some photos at the event, this was a great opportunity to get a feel for the sport of polo from behind a lens, and help out a great organization. It was great to see all the buddies learning to play polo and getting to play in their very own polo match with professional polo players and ponies. It was both inspirational and beautiful to witness and be a part of this awesome event. Check out Best Buddies Florida, and all of their great local events!
