The Comer Family

I must say when Amanda approached me to do this year's family shoot I had to put some thought into how to pull off family photos in a night club.  This was a touch outside of my comfort zone as I am more of a documentary style photographer.  

The goal, to present a bit of a fashion forward photo shoot that still encapsulated the family element but keep the them of glitz and glam without going over the top.  

The results turned out really well and I'm really happy with the end result.  I thank the Comer's for their patience and I'm super pumped to share some highlights from the shoot.  

Images were shot at Shea Comer's Truth and Alibi located in Deep Ellum (Dallas, TX).  A cool spot tucked away behind the facade of a candy shoppe!  


Shot with Fuji X-T1, Fuji X100s, Fuji 23mm F1.4, Fuji 35mm F1.4, Fuji 56mm F1.2

THE ELLINGSON FAMILY

I'll start this blog post talking a little bit about gear.  I continue to grow into my Fuji camera system and am learning to love it more and more.  I think it's been just over a year that I've been fully committed to the system.  Just from a size perspective, I love taking my camera places and not looking like a total knob with a 5D Mark III slung around my neck.  DSLR's have a place for professional work (and so do mirrorless cameras) but casually going out on a Saturday night, walking around with the fam or casual travel...I'll take a mirrorless camera all day, every day.  Walking around with a full size DSLR just doesn't inspire me to take my camera places which means I'm not taking photos!

The biggest gripe that I read/hear about the Fuji system is the sensor size.  This prompted me to score a good deal on a Sony A7 to test it out (maybe I'll do a comparison post one day if I get the time) but what I can say about the Sony A7 is that image quality is top notch.  However, it's not very versatile, I'm sure it will improve over time but for me I'll be slinging my X-T1 for personal and professional work.

A photographer that I admire, Zack Arias, did a nice piece called crop or crap, discussing the merits of a 'Full Frame Sensor' vs a 'Crop Sensor', you can view that video/article here.  As he states in the article/video, it's not the camera, it's the moron behind the camera that makes the images.  I agree 100 percent with this premise.  That being said, I don't think any camera manufacturer is making a bad camera now a days so whether it's mirrorless or DSLR, you're going to get fantastic images, IF you know what you're doing.

As for the shoot, I had a great time spending a couple of hours with the Ellingson's.  They are a pretty rad family and Graham, their son, is full of life and energy!  Cheers!

Now it's photo time...

It's funny how things come full circle.  I met Amee and Ankur a few years ago as I had an opportunity to photograph Ankur's birthday celebration.  I had a blast that night and I had a fantastic time taking a lifestyle/documentary perspective of a first day with newborn babies!   It was a great time and enjoyed having an opportunity to grab a few delicate moments with Aasha, Aakash, Ankur and Amee.

Introducing Aasha and Aakash - a beautiful pair of twins!    Cheers and congratulations!
