Another Great Day at GLM

Another interesting day at the Great Legal Marketing Jump Start Seminar. I met many interesting people, made some new contacts, and even some potential new business. The best comment of the day I received had nothing to do with photography. I very nice woman approached me and said that I must be Ben's oldest child as I was the spitting image of him. I laughed and thanked her as Ben walked by and said "hey Dad....your doing a great job."

Great Legal Marketing With Ben Glass

Today I attended the first of three days with the fine folks at Great Legal Marketing hosted by none other then my brother Ben Glass. I was hired to take some stock photos for web use and other publications. As I sat and listened to one great idea after another, mostly geared towards bringing in new business over the web, I came up with an idea of my own; this slide show produced through Animoto. Its a great lead in to what ever subject your promoting and finishes with a hot link to the URL of your choosing. Additionally, it is uploadable to your iPhone, YouTube, FaceBook, your blog, and many other web based medias. And finally, you can download a high resolution copy to your computer or DVD for your customer.

Making the slideshow is fairly easy for anyone that knows their way around a computer, however, getting good images is what really makes the show and you really have to know your photography....

....or hire someone who does ;)

Girl Scout Father Daughter Dance

Last Sunday I did a shoot for my friends in Girl Scouts of America. Some of you may know that I've been a registered leader with Boy Scouts for many years. I'm a huge supporter of the program. The theme for the father daughter dance was cowgirl. I took this shot of this lovely young lady with my 50mm, although I chose to use flash this time for more clarity. It has been enhanced with Photoshop CS3.

American History Museum

My oldest son was off school yesterday so we decided to venture down to the newly redesigned National American History Museum. It was very well done and had more to offer than we could cover in the time we had. I took my camera and new 50mm lens (no flash) to see what I could come up with.

Trying out the Canon 50mm f1.4 Prime

This week I treated myself to a new 50mm fast lens in an effort to improve my indoor basketball shots. I think I'm getting closer. So far I have no complaints. Love it. As with my Canon 70-200mm zoom the shallow depth of field can be a challenge. In a good way. Makes me work harder.
