The new website I've been planning for MONTHS is finally up and running! It has a blog built into it, so you'll have to go straight to the website at www.robertwoodphoto.com to see what's new and exciting. I hope you enjoy the new website!
Studio photographers are few and far between. I love shooting outdoors as much as anyone, especially here in Utah with our beautiful 4 seasons, but there is still something about the timeless beauty and classic lighting of a studio portrait. Some photographers say they specialize in location portraits - wink,wink - that just means they are still learning how to shoot a true portrait:) Add black and white for even more WOW.
Lots of beautiful colors, and still lots of green waiting to turn. This great looking couple is Samantha and Jay. They met at Winona State University where she was a gymnast and he was on the football team. This is a really fun "save the date" idea with the football jerseys. I'm glad I could be a part of their wedding story!
A few from this last week. Two were taken in Park City, and the other three at one of my favorite new locations in Salt Lake.
I've used a filter in the image below -something I rarely do. About the only filter I apply is a black and white that I love. I added just a bit of "pop" to the bride's dress in this one. I think Photoshop is used waaaaay toooooo muuuuuuch in photography today.
I remember my days at Clearfield High well - scraping together $3 in gas money to get to the Ogden Mall, intercepting report cards in the mail (can't do that anymore), working at Hamblin's Foodtown, and praying I would be on the graduation list.
The Class of 2014 is waaaaay smarter that I was at their age. This is what I've been up to for the last month.
I'm posting a few pictures here to show that it's possible to have one, and only one photographer capture a wedding. A great photographer is always watching for the special candid moments while they are arranging the more traditional shots. I actually witnessed THREE photographers shooting a wedding next to me at the Salt Lake Temple last weekend. Holy cow, it was chaos. The poor couple didn't know where to look, and no one seemed to really be in charge. It was entertaining to say the least, and it did give me a great blog piece here. These are a few pictures that I was able to capture all by my lonesome. Enjoy!
