My favorite plane... great memory for that pilot!
When the Pilot Gets Married

You have a wedding reception at an airplane hanger at a flight museum with old functional planes scattered about everywhere.

I think the coolest part is that he's actually flown that plane. Though his day job is as a private pilot using obviously a different plane.

How it happened:
I was doing "detail" pictures and loving the scene... the father wanted a father-daughter picture and I thought this would be a good scene. But it required some light... so I ran and grabbed the flash and handed it off to someone at the wedding. I liked the picture so much I called over the groom.

How it was taken:
I took a picture of the background and exposed for it well... and then with the flash/softbox combo pointed in their direction with the person holding it just out of the frame I dialed in the right amount of flash to make the couple match the background.
Then in lightroom I darkened inside the hanger even more.

Just in case you're looking for a song for V-Day... #VDay

Today's successful marketing ploy implemented on me... allowing me to stream the new album from The Fray from #iTunes. Can you say pre-order? Done! =D

Moving is expensive! Set up fees, deposits, add-ons, blah blah blah. #emptywalletcomingsoon

Although I wouldn't try this with cats in the home (think fire and mayhem)... THIS is pretty neat! =)
My sister's Christmas tree has candles.

For a couple of centuries before electricity was widely distributed, German Christmas trees were decorated with candles.

My sister and her family has always used candles on their trees. It sounds dangerous, but there are well understood techniques for making it safe, and they use them.

How awesome is this?
