And just like the movies...We play out our last scene

So I had the privilege to shoot on this lil indie set for the movie Charlotte. It's a movie about Bigfoot falling in love with a beauty, kidnaps her, then realizes his mistake once he gets her back to his lair. But it's not the conscience that bugs him, it's her personality! lol

Anyway, I was able to meet with cool people that day; a MUA (with whom I plan to work very soon) and a DP who does small music videos here and there. Word up.

And last but not least, your's truly ;)

iPhone Snaps

And who do you call when your main video camera rig goes down? Yep, that's me w/ a Fig Rig capturing some motion picture hotness haha.

Chloe, You Bounce To-And-Frowey

Ok, this lil' ball of energy is named Chloe. She's the recently-turned-5 lil' munchkin of an old car buddy of mine. She was the reason I'm considering buying a real speedlight to deal with changing lighting conditions and a kid who likes to run around close to the camera, then far away, then somewhere in between lol.

Anyway, on to the show. Here are a few of my favs:

Maybe I should concentrate on Black & White? Hmm...

This one's just plain AWESOME!

So that's her. Her personality is as bright as her sweater! And I figured if I can make good pictures of her, I can photograph almost anyone! ;)

1 & 1, We're Havin' Some Fun...

So here I present newlyweds Jason and Mary Beck! Yay!

I've known Mary since my AMC theater days back in 2001 and was actually pretty shocked when I heard she was getting married. I didn't even know she was dating anyone lol. But it's all good, though. Jason's actually a damn cool guy and I mos def approve. :) It just sucks he likes Newcastle over Corona. IMO, there's only two kinds of beer that go well w/ Mexican food (which was offered at the reception); Corona and Brahma. :p

Well, enough of that...Let's get on w/ the show!

This was an awesome learning experience. I had to get off work early since I was working all the way up in Oceanside and had to rush through traffic and heaps of downtown construction to get there just in time for the ceremony. I also learned that I really need to get a better on-camera flash. Since I upgraded from my Rebel XT, I haven't gotten a chance to get a compatible flash for my 5D2. I spent all my money on studio strobes...lé poo. So QUICK! Hire me! :D
