2nd Shooter

I rarely ever 2nd shoot and I've really only done it for 3 of my closest friends because I absolutely treasure my weekends off and last weekend I had the chance to shoot with Chris Humphreys and we had such a blast! I shot just a few pictures and then shot video of him the rest of the time.

Chris is incredible with rolling with whatever happens and I learned a lot just watching how he negotiated the circumstances and got even better and more unique pictures because of the change in weather! I hope he posts up a few of his favorites!

Here are some of my favorite pics!

I like this one because of the colors and the pretty flowers.



And this one is cool because it's also kinda abstract.



And I really like this shot because it's the first time I had ever shot with an F 1.0 lens! Whoa! I missed the focus just barely (I must've been distracted) but I still think it's a good shot.



Thanks Chris! You rock man!

Its fun to second, step back and think about new perspectives - try a few things that might not work out. I made a trip out to CA a while back for that purpose
