Sabbath was a busy day at Atlanta-Berean Seventh-day Adventist Church, with the Baccalaureate ceremony for those graduating from the Berean Christian Junior Academy (BCJA).
It’s been almost half a year since I’ve photographed a major Sabbath and I felt a little rusty this time around, but I think I still pulled out quite well with the photos I took. (= We can’t ALWAYS be on top of everything!
These are some of the images I really liked from the service. You can find my full gallery by clicking the link below and also watching some clips of video I recorded as well.
Last week, I decided to take a day off and go out into town and just have some fun and take some pictures at the Centennial Olympic Park in Downtown Atlanta.
I really hadn’t planned on really doing anything, but something just drove me to going out and getting out the house to have some real fun for a change outside of work. I’m actually glad I did, as I really enjoyed my time out and had the chance to meet a lot of new people!
I happened to be photographing towards the tallest hotel here, the Westin from Centennial Park when a beautiful young lady happened to walk over to me and ask me to be in a photo shoot! I was actually on the phone at the time as well and so she caught me off guard. She was needing a black male for a shoot project she was doing and I happened to look around and to my surprise… I was the only black male around! Couldn’t believe it! I agreed to do it (even though I love taking pictures, but not having someone take pictures OF me), because she was pretty and I couldn’t turn down a pretty face! Ha! It was actually really fun and interesting and had fun with the people I did my mini segment with (they’re in the image on the bottom btw).
My next moment I happened to come back to the Fountain of Rings for a shot of the sunset that was just over looking the fountain and saw a few kids still running into the fountain. There was one little girl (Her name is Asia - beautiful name) who was very adorable that really caught my eye (and my true and long term fans will know how much I love children) and I had to ask her father (Rawle) if I could take her picture. He was very welcoming to it and I snapped a couple of her. After taking them, her mom came up behind me with their son (Asha and Kai) and asked if I could take photos of them. Of course I wouldn’t say no! Her son was so playful and I love the couple of images with them together that I took.
I’m trying to do more adventurous things this year, as far as new places of shooting and doing more YouTube vlogs for my channel. I certainly enjoy the people I meet out in public. Sometimes I laugh when people don’t even know who I am or know the kinds of images I take, but usually I tell people they can find the images I take of them here on my blog and after viewing are stunned by my portfolio! I think the HDR side of what I do is the most eye-catching for most.
PS: The image at the very top is NOT a HDR image. I just wanted to make that clear, for those who think I don’t take standard images without the flashy vibrant look that my sunset images have. (=
Earlier this week I took a visit to Downtown Atlanta and visited a few places, which included the CNN Center.
In the years I’ve been in Atlanta, I had not been inside the CNN Center, so I had to stop in and take a few pictures before I grabbed a bite to eat at MOE’S.
While I was eating, I couldn’t help but look around at all the things that were around. The place is very large inside and fascinating to look around at. I even found myself taking a few photos of the Cartoon Network store! I loved a lot of CN shows back in the day so I had to!
Today I took a nice journey out to the Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta to do some HDR (High-Dynamic Range) photographing.
I’m sharing this one photo from my day out today shooting, which was very fun and interesting to say the least… and you’ll see more from this later on in upcoming YouTube videos and blogs here on my site.
I really liked this image of all that I took. The colors are what really turned me on to it and the sunset’s position was so perfect!
Last month I photographed for a fashion shoot with Caliber Models at the 1010 Midtown high-rise, which was a 4 model high fashion shoot that was very fun and done during the night to almost the early morning.
I’ve shared a couple of images from this shoot already, but this is another new one of an image I really loved also. This was quite the fun shoot and rather enjoyable, especially when you’re photographing at over 30 stories high!
Check out the behind the footage in my new YouTube video I shared today, by scrolling down and watching right here on my blog!
No matter where I attend church, there always happens to be that one special child that always finds their way in front of my camera, and Neve is one of them!
I’ve only been photographing at the Atlanta-Berean Seventh-day Adventist Church for about 9 or so months now, and in that time frame I’ve happened to capture tons of photos of this sweetheart!
She’s so adorable and sweet and will ALWAYS wave at you if she’s looking your way. I remember one Sabbath, she and I were playing together for a good while teasing one another. I caught quite a few photos of her that day to!
These photos were taken during the Children’s Chapel. In the top image, she happened to be viewing what was going on in the church on the screen’s, which is a live view of service. She certainly was very into that for sure!
West End’s newly renovated design had several features that made it EXCITING for me to photograph here on the weekends for Worship services. I think the favorite being the newly installed spotlights.
I had photographed in the West End Church for a few years prior to the renovation and it wasn’t the easiest, but I managed. After renovation, it made for a lot of special images for me to try and many different compositions I didn’t ever think to try before.
This was taken my last day there, for their annual Christmas Cantata celebration, which was my first time ever photographing. I must say it was fun to photograph, with this being my first Worship service where the sanctuary lights weren’t on and just the spotlights. Talk about a lot of fun for me!
It’s been almost a month ago since this little outing, but I haven’t had the chance to do any video editing in the last few weeks with so much going on and many events and projects I’ve been working on. I finally have an open week and got around to posting this blog and video finally.
I was out with my friend, David again and we came across this beautiful free-flowing waterfall and of course had to stop to take pictures here. It wasn’t until we were actually shooting that we saw a home up a hill on this property. My friend went to the home to speak with the owner who was cool. Didn’t care about the photos we were taken at that moment as really most of where we were was actually public property.
These are a few of the images I took that I really liked. I took some video and also showed a clip of how I go about doing my brackets, which is sort of tricky on Sony camera’s. You’ll actually get to see what I mean and why it can sometimes be a pain when doing HDR.
Check out more photos and also the YouTube vlog below.
Here’s another photo I decided to share of my favorite home on the 2013 Midtown Tour of Homes.
Only two days away from the tour and I’m really looking forward to it. Compared to 2010, this is 10 times greater and it’s great to see the major difference in my work from then to now, in those three years!
The tour is this weekend, April 20th and 21st! I hope you all come out and take the tour if you’re in the area! I’d love to meet many of my fans in person!
