Fusion Video: Cami's 17th Birthday party

Cami's 17th birthday party was so much fun. Cami and 12 of her friends from Francis W Parker School in San Diego met at the Hilton Bayfront and more specifically the Fox Sports Grill for dinner. We arrived early to capture the girls meeting up and having some fun conversations, photos and gift giving as the setting sun provided some great lighting. We made copies for all the girls and hope to see them again soon! Thanks Cami and Dixie, Diane and I had so much fun and hope to see you soon!

Fusion Video: The Donley Wedding

Finally, out of m+m Photography editing room; a 6 minute fusion of still photography and video. Ken & YuChen Donley were married on NAB San Diego (The Navy Seals Base) on Coronado Island. Just south of the famous Hotel Del. The wedding took place at The Chapel From The Sea and was a very pleasant and non military-ish experience. Thanks Chris and Mr. & Mrs. Donley for having us!

Red Light District Photo shoot

Had a chance to shoot some local models in a downtown restaurant called the Marble Room. I'm a member of the San Diego Modeling and Photography Group and they had a "Red Light District" shoot last weekend..... What blast! The Marble Room is
located in San Diego's Gaslamp District and modeled after a late 19th/early 20th Century bordello. The models were dressed in attire representing that period and what a great job they did! Complete with a couple of the group make up artists, we had a wonderful time and felt very "period" all afternoon. I had even more fun processing some of the images in antique style - reminiscent of that "old time" in history. Well, enough yappin' here's the snappin's:

Fun with photo compositions

We've been having some fun with photo layering and some overlays found on FLIKR.com Since we've been photographing for years there is no shortage of great subject material to play with on these "composites." Some of the images have 2-5 layers of overlays adjusted at different opacities and in some cases parts of the layer were masked off. Can't wait to see some from Diane! -mac
