High Energy In The Class = Lightning

Well today we wrapped up the last day of Niagara School Of Imaging.  We started off the morning with a quick shoot of my friend Allen Rothwell.  We had this idea about 8 months ago when I saw his avatar on our NoBs Site with a motorcycle rider on a kiddy ride.  Well, we got Allen suited up in his riding gear (He’s a Ducati Rider) and headed off to the local kiddy park. :0  It didn’t take us long to get the shot as it was 32 degrees and I was hot, I could only imagine what the heck Allen’s suite smelled like after the shoot.  I want to thank my class again for an amazing week.  I always learn something when I teach, and I learned a lot this week, about myself  and teaching.  I’m in a good spot in my life and my class only enhanced it even more.  Thanks guys, can’t wait until next year.

Since I was somewhat in the neighborhood, I detoured some side roads and headed to Simcoe to visit my cousin.  Her and her husband just recently added a new addition to their family and I wanted the opportunity to photograph this new bundle of joy.  Christopher had no problem adjusting to this new goofy sweaty funny looking guy poking this big honkin camera lens in his face. I don’t know if he was staring at me because I was in his face or because he was subliminally trying to tell me to go away and take that big honkin camera lens with me hahaha, he was a pure joy to photograph.  In the end I captured this great image of my second cousin and I look forward to future shoots.

After the portrait session I headed  to Orangeville to  my good buddy Jose  Paulo’s ( www.imagesbypaulo.com) place to give him a hand with his blog.   As luck would have it, the nice sunny day turned into fabulous display of lighting and me being me I had to stop on the side of the highway to capture some of it.  Trudging through waist high grass to the top of a hill I managed to capture a few frames.

Now that I am here (at Joe’s Place) I quickly realized how drained I am from this week, so I am crashing on the couch, doing some laundry (my pants are wet) and will be back home to my lovely wife tomorrow morning.  I’m gone for the weekend, so I will see you all on Monday.
