Red's Had Enough!

A lot of my ideas tend to be happy or humorous ones. I don't try, but that's the way they turn out. It's just the way my mind usually works. For this shoot I did recently with Megan, I decided I wanted to take a crack at something a little darker. Maybe even somewhat violent... ok, well maybe just implied violence.

And for some reason children's fairy tales felt like a suitable genre to go about doing that. Ha ha, sorry. I can't control the random ideas that pop out of my head. I just try to roll with them.

So here is the first in what I hope to be a series of "dark" fairy tale photos.

More Michaela!

During the shoot with Michaela (view the first blog post about her shoot here), we took a couple shots of her in a villain outfit. I knew I wanted to try something new with those shots, but wasn't sure what to do with them. After some thought, I decided to put her into an apocalyptic setting for a faux movie poster entitled "Hell Hath No Fury".

So here are the results of a woman scorned.

This first shot is probably my favorite. I just love the overall feel to it.

I couldn't decide between poses, so I did this one as well. Then put it into a coming soon display for a little extra fun!

And there are almost always video games based on big summer movies, right? So just for kicks, Hell Hath No Fury became an X-Box 360 game too.

Penguins Stanley Cup Parade!

For the first time since 1992, the Stanley Cup made it's way down the streets of Pittsburgh. I just happen to work right next to the parade route with access to a rooftop with a great view of the players passing by.

So here is a link to the shots I took as well as a pic of one of my favorites. Make sure to click on it to see it larger.
