SLR Lounge Lightroom Presets Review

SLR Lounge Lightroom Presets Testimonial

SLR Lounge just released V6 (beta) of their Lightroom Preset system. I have been using the SLR Lounge Lightroom Preset system since v3 and I love it. I shoot between 20 and 30 wedding a year, at an average of 3000 photos per wedding… well thats a lot of photos to edit. I use Lightroom 99% of the time for all edits and the SLR Lounge Preset System saves me a ton of time editing photos. Its so simple to use and the possibilities of the end result of an edited image is endless. With over 130 presets for a clean edit, to Vintage to HDR effects in seconds.

I can not imagine editing a wedding without the SLR Lounge Preset System.

I created my own Presets for all the photos I edit using the SLR Lounge preset System which mean I can now edit a photo with a click of a button. I will definitely be upgrading to V6.

In the mean time you can order the Lightroom preset System by clicking on the following link:

Canadian Club Whisky tasting

Canadian Club Whisky tasting

 

If you have never been to the Hiram Walker’s Canadian Club Brand Centre in Windsor, ON, it is definitely a must see.  Not just for tourists, but also for Windsor residents, as it’s a huge part of our history.

 

Every few weeks, the Canadian Club hosts Whisky tastings.  We were honored to be a part of this event.  Tish, the Brand Ambassador, eloquently explained the history of the building and Hiram Walker’s legacy.
She walked us through the different aged whiskys, accompanied by cheeses and dark chocolates.  What a perfect combination!
This event was a fun filled evening, as Tish kept the information entertaining, and finished the tasting with a surprise …a 50 year aged Whisky.

Mastering the Nikon D800

Mastering the Nikon D800

 

I am super excited to announce that one of my photos will be published in the new “Mastering the Nikon D800″ book by Darrell Young.

Darrell Young is an author of Nikon Camera books and has published 6 other Nikon Camera books in the last few years. Books like “Mastering the Nikon  D7000″ was very popular among D7000 owners.

The Nikon D800 is the worlds first 36mp DSLR and a very demanding camera. The Nikon D800 has been one of the most anticipated cameras in many years and the waiting period to get one of these Cameras was anywhere between 2 and 5 months. Darrell got his hands on one of the very first D800’s available and started testing the Camera so that he would be able to start writing his new book as soon as possible.  The D800 can be an overwhelmingly complex camera. Darrell’s goal in writing this book was to help the reader get the best use out of the over abundance of features available.

Darrell is a member of the group Nikonians  – www.nikonians.org which has several thousand members world wide. Darrell asked the group to submit photos taken with the Nikon D800 that could be used as chapter opening for his new book. At first there were only a few submissions, but as the D800 became more readily available, photo submissions started to stream in and Darrell had hundreds of photos to choose from for the 13 chapters in his book.

I am very excited that one of my photos, which is a photo of my son Tristan, would be the opening photo for chapter 4 in the new “Mastering the Nikon D800″ book.

I would like to thank Darell Young for choosing my photo out of hundreds of other submissions to be the opening chapter image of one of his 13 chapters. Mastering the Nikon D800 will be available on August 28 2012.

“Mastering the Nikon D800″ can be Pre- ordered at Amazon.ca

Family photo shoot – Dora and Emma

This past weekend we did a Family photo shoot with Dora and her daughter Emma. Family photo shoots can be a lot of fun. Most people do not have photos of their entire family, because one of them is usually taking the photo. When you do a Family photo shoot with a professional photographer, you can have fun, be yourself and actually be in your own photos. After the family photo session, Dora did an outfit change and we did a Portrait session with just Dora.
The family photo shoot and Portrait session was taken at Jackson Park in Windsor. It was a perfect day outside with no wind and it wasn’t too hot.
To book your Family photo shoot, give us a call at 519 915 8073
