Roses For The Wedding Cake

Roses for the Wedding CakeDuring a wedding I photographed at a winery, I caught sight of them finally bringing out the “nude” wedding cake. The woman in charge of the whole thing had with her a newspaper photo of a similar wedding cake that she used as a go-by in placing the roses and adding the finishing touches. When photographing a wedding or any event, for that matter, it’s the extras like this that add to a memorable photo shoot. And the technique of focusing in on an object (or objects) in the foreground while leaving the background sort of “bokeh’d” makes for a more interesting image than just a straight all-in-focus shot.

What I Did On My President’s Day Vacation

I just finished reading the latest post to Rob Slaven Photography on what he did over the President’s Day holiday.  He was out taking photos.

I too had the Monday off.  I spent it before my laptop, working on photos already taken; I uploaded all sorts of photos to my Google+ site, my Facebook Page, and my Flickr site.  I also wrote and published a couple of blog posts, as well.  I always feel prolific during my days off because my weekdays are so hectic and stressful.  All I want to do when I get home in the evening is eat dinner, watch the nightly national news, then go to bed and zonk out by 8PM (hey, I get up at 4AM each morning, so to pack in enough hours of sleep, I go to bed pretty early – it has to be something really special to keep me up past 8PM).  That doesn’t leave much room for working on photos or posting them to any site or blog.

Here’s a sampling of photos I uploaded to my various sites.

Enough fun for the time being.  Time to log in to my office computer for a little bit of work.  After that, I need to figure out what outfit to wear tomorrow, get my breakfast and lunch ready, and in general get back to the workaday world mindset.  Sigh.
