New Chapter!

7, Jan 2010

It has been a LOOOONG time since I’ve posted. It’s terrible. I know. The back end of 2009 was a rough one. The two movies I worked on were the most unpleasant of my film career, I got a bacterial pneumonia that required a week in the hospital and two weeks of IV antibiotics at […]

Super Busy

18, Aug 2009

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve posted something. After the two weddings in Colorado I got back to Shreveport and started on Straw Dogs right away. Making movies take 110% of my attention. Between working 14+ hour days on the movie and trying to get over 6000+ images sorted and edited, there […]

I’m sitting in a Best Western in Dallas. I kinda dig the down time in a hotel room from time to time. Watch a little TV, read a little, blog a little… get three pounds of Spicy Chicken with Peanut from the Chinese place next door (seriously, about three pounds). Anyway, I’m headed to Colorado […]

I came across this video on Strobist that was originally posted on Wired. The only thing I wish the video showed is him getting the model releases from people on the street. It’s one thing to be fun and as ask people to take their picture, but I’d love to see how they react when […]

How To Clean Your Lens

18, Jul 2009

I asked the guys at Camera Dojo for a video tutorial on How To Clean You Lens. Today they posted it. They also gave me a shout out too! A big thanks to Kerry Garrison and Camera Dojo for taking the time to do this: Cleaning your DSLR lenses from Kerry Garrison on Vimeo.

I finally started reading Fast Track Photographer by Dane Sanders. I haven’t done this since college: After reading Getting Started and Chapter 1, I re-read them… with a yellow highlighter in hand. I’m going to try and write a blog post after each chapter with my thoughts and ideas I like (and don’t like). Getting […]

Busy, Busy, Busy

16, Jul 2009

I can’t believe it’s been almost a week since I’ve posted anything here. I’ve been spending a lot of time with (my main photography website and blog). I got the design of the site to a place that I’m happy with for now. Although I’d love to have the comments be visible on the […]

In a previous post I talked about some of the different approaches to the website. I have some website experience. I have an old version of DreamWeaver and enough CSS and PHP knowledge to get by. So, for now, I’ve decided to set up my website on my own. The templates available from places like […]

I decided. I’m going to run with Benjamin Trevor Photography and use the URL I will start introducing myself to prospective couples, vendors, and other photographers as Benjamin Trevor. That will be a bit of an adjustment, but I think it’s a good idea. I’m not going to completely ignore my real last name. […]

The Notebook

5, Jul 2009

I’m still a little overloaded, though I’m chipping away everything. After meeting with the following people in St. Louis, I have several pages of chicken scratched notes in two different notebooks. I think it’s time to consolidate the list in a blog entry. Special thanks to these wonderful people for taking the time to help […]
