Info on the paynage

Howdy the names Aaron, and this is my attempt at taking a photo a day and posting it here for everyone to see starting january 1st 2010. I know, I know it’s not original.

UPDATE: Ok, so I'm not getting one out everyday anymore. But hey at least I'm still working at it!

Bit about me and my life of creating images... I’ve been taking photos well back into the days of film. I’ve spent a couple years shooting only black and white and developing in the dark room and loved it. Fast forwarding to the days of the pixel I’ve since abondoned film and have gone all digital (Sorry film! I will always love you, I’ve been seduced by the instant gradification).

Recently I’ve been becoming obsessed with studio and strobist lighting.

There's some great natural light that reflects onto our stairs.

I've basically hit the reset button on my backyard, tilled the entire yard, taking dirt out and planting a bunch of plants and trees. The dog helps with digging holes.

This was an older photo I took and decided to touch it up a bit.

After a year of watching my hair grow I figured it was time to cut it all off. Feels Awesome!

I think the only thing that might make me even sexier is if I had my shirt off to show off my hairy chest and a sweet mullet. Watch out David Hasselhoff! Anyways, I was just playing around with lighting here and using a warming red gel.

Sorry to all my followers that I'm such a slacker lately on my daily photos. I'm going to catch up though. I promise!

First time in weeks that I have used some of my lights. I wonder if I will ever learn not to look directly at a flash when it's about to go off at full power.

First day back to work and I'm completely slammed with work.
