Maggie took off today to spend the remainder of the week in St. George. So there probably won’t be any pictures for the next few days… unless I get really creative and think of something awesome… which could happen. Or it couldn’t. Who knows!
After Maggie and I did a little bit of shopping at the gateway, we walked around downtown Salt Lake City and snapped a few shots. The walking around part didn’t last too long because Maggie ended up getting a huge blister on the heel of her foot, compliments of the new shoes she was wearing.
We headed back home and stopped at The Habit at Station Park in Farmington to grab a burger. We finished eating right as this amazing sunset was happening. Luckily, we were on more of an undeveloped side of Station Park, so we were able to jump into a nice big field with that amazing sunset as our backdrop.
My buddy Max was over hanging out when I realized that I hadn’t taken any photos of Maggie today. So we rushed outside our apartment and went across the street. We were running out of light pretty quick, so we were only able to snap a few shots.
And shout to Max for coming up with Maggie sitting in the street shot. It’s one of my favorites I’ve taken so far… and I can’t even take complete creative credit for it! Haha. Shucks!
It was pretty stormy today. There was off and on rain, and a good amount of wind to go with it. I wanted to take advantage as much as possible with the awesome storm clouds we were getting in the sky. So after scouting around Kaysville for a bit, we stumbled on some cool areas.
Today, I just took some photos of Maggie around our apartment and our apartment complex.
I love the natural light that was coming from the windows and the not-so-done-up look. It seemed to be more real and less posed. Almost like seeing a day in the life of Maggie. I thought it was really beautiful. There’s not many girls who can look this good without any make up.
It was my friend’s birthday, so we headed out to their place in Pleasant Grove, UT. They live in this amazing house that was built in 1905. Their house had a steep staircase that lead up stairs to an old, attic type area that hadn’t been updated at all since then. There were rooms filled with old keepsakes and pictures from the 1900′s and honestly just had a creepy vibe.
My friend’s wife kept going on and on about how it was haunted, so we just had to get a picture in there!
We had just finished shooting a video for Maggie and her Eyelash Extensions company when the sun started setting, so we raced over to her sister’s backyard and took this photo!
According to Malcolm Gladwell, it takes roughly 10,000 hours in a given field to completely master it. So with this idea in mind, and wanting an excuse to go out and use my camera more, I decided to set the goal of taking photos of my wife Maggie for an entire year. Thus, 365 days of Maggs was born.
In this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to color correct DSLR video in your video editor. I’ll be using RGB/Color Curves exclusively, which will make this color correction technique universal with virtually every video editing software.
When it comes to color correction, the first step is to look at your footage and evaluate what changes you need to make to get the look you want.
It’s pretty popular right now to make our photos and video have more of that “vintage” look. In the video tutorial below, I explain my process of how to get that particular look by simply using a curves adjustment. By only using a curves adjustment, this gives you necessary flexibility to not only do it in Photoshop, but also in any other video editor that has a Curves color correction effect. [Read more...]
