The Menard Family

This past Saturday morning I had the pleasure of doing a family photo shoot for the Menard family. I can honestly say it was one of the most challenging things I’ve ever had to photograph. By the time we got going, the sun was high in the sky and bright… very, very bright. We had to…

Lighting

Lately, I’ve been playing around with lighting setups in my basement. Using a white backdrop, I’ve been taking what I like to call “product shots” of various things around the house.
