I have been going through a huge upgrade phase – partly for my business, and partly because it was just time. Being that it has been a while since I changed my technology, I have had a lot of time to think about the new setup. I last upgraded the desktop PC in 2005, and it was starting to choke on all the ballroom dancing pictures! So, I have a new Core 2, 64-bit system that is running well for the last month. It took some time, but I figured out a good backup scheme for all the data I’m accumulating. It involves a Windows Home Server which was made from the previous computer and other excess drives lying around. I feel a lot more secure – I hope that it lasts!
Today is a good day to put in a blog entry – It is the 4th wedding anniversary for me and my wife! I can’t believe that it has gone by this quickly. We have been through so much – almost all good things through these four years that the time has really flown by. I wonder if she feels the same way! Well, I thank her for all her support in trying this new career, and I’m trying my best to make it work for the both of us! Happy Anniversary!
Considering I am trying to be a wedding photographer, I should put some examples of my work in that area. Well, here is a photo that is not from a wedding, per se, but is relevant to the subject. It is a shot that has been done numerous times. However, it was relatively new to me as I browsed many wedding photographer websites. You can see differing examples on the Internet from other photographers, but I had to try it for myself. The Bible passage seemed to fit, and the rings stayed just where I wanted them! I would give credit to the creative /mathematical/artistic mind that saw this first if I only knew…
All in all, this is just one photo in an entire collection of wedding pictures. Although the day is fleeting, these images have the opportunity to stand the test of time. Prior to delving into weddings, I heard a photographer say something profound about the craft. He said, wedding photography is the first heirloom for a new family. I never thought of it that way! It is for this reason that these are the first things people look for when leaving a burning home. It is one of the most important possessions they will have!
