Kelechi's Baby Shower

Image
I had to document two events back to back yesterday: a baby shower in Jersey City, NJ and a 40th birthday celebration in New Brunswick, NJ. Event Photography can be a very physical occupation, so it's very exhausting. You have to be serious about taking care of yourself and eating right. I promised myself I would take one day off a week to rest and relax with family; I decided this because I was tired of going to work extremely tired. I got a chance to relax today and finally make a blog post. The pictures below are from Kelechi's baby shower in Jersey City, NJ. I had to add my own lighting as the lights in the wine cellar were kind of dim. Let me know what you think and do enjoy.

Flood Hill, South Orange

I went to Flood's Hill in South Orange, NJ today with the intention of testing my new Nikon 85mm which I plan to use for a shoot tomorrow. I was really trying to see how I would use it to frame the subject as compared to framing a subject with my 35mm or 10-20mm wide angle lens. I couldn't really find anything interesting so I went to my wide angle lens and started experimenting with landscape images. I composed a shot, moved around a bit and took a couple more takes before I found something I was happy with. I wanted to get the clouds to look.a certain way and have the light from the sun shine through and brighten up the field. Out of all the shots, this is the one I'm most satisfied with. I took a shot from this field a little over a year ago.

Here are some images from Sistahsinbusinessexpo I covered in Newark, NJ yesterday. The expo is the brainchild of founder and CEO Aisha Taylor Issah. It was a great event with lots of successful vendors doing their thing and guest appearances by Newark, NJ Mayor Ras Baraka and Vivica Fox among others.
