    Why don't you post some reviews and samples of the shit you buy instead of just saying you bought something? Seriously, the "I bought something" threads are getting old.

    Gear = good pics. As he buys more gear his pics get better. Everybody knows this is how photography works. I wanna see how good he is in a year.

    I've changed my style of shooting in the past year. Here's some samples from my first wedding (with cheesy Craigslist ad copy)

    cute ricer angles. Looking at your current pics, id guess you were a lot younger. Are your customers surprised sometimes when they meet you? They just have a really youthful look to them.

    Thanks. OT has kept me young.

    I always wear a bag over my head when I meet with clients.

    that sample of your recent work....LOVE it!

    what a difference from before, eh

    there's just so much more 'story' in the latter pics, much cleaner, more maturity, more pop & zest.

    Thanks but you have to realize that in both samples, these are just a few random pics from the wedding. The "story" is there in all cases but I've changed up my style to be a bit more "current". I've actually simplified my approach and use less light than I use to.

    Maybe story is the wrong word, I don't mean that I look at these sequence of pics and think they're telling a wedding story, start to finish.

    But there is a palpable difference. Within each photograph, there is something that invites you to look deeper.

    With snapshots, even wedding snapshots...there's nothing deeper. Just surface detail.


    I wouldn't have guessed they're from the same photog. I guess in a sense, they aren't. The latter are much more developed and more fully realized.

    Thanks! Much appreciated. I'm still trying to evolve as a wedding tog and so I'm learning and changing with each wedding I shoot.

    Did you really just post "gear = good pics?" :ugh:

    Anyway ... I have nothing against Jim at all. But, people buy gear all the time, and I always check to see if they reviewed it or not. Sure xxx lighting kit might help produce great pictures. However, how easy was it use, how long did the batteries last, what's the build quality like, etc? In all honesty I would rather hear how something performs and works rather just see the results or worse yet just that someone bought it. Heaven forbid I introduce logic beyond gear whoring into this so-called "no bullshit" atmosphere.

    Very valid points and point well taken. I'll post up some reviews of my gear after I've had a chance to work with it.
