Sit by the pool this winter

Pool scene for Annual Report

It got really cold this weekend in Charlotte and we were doing some Annual Report photos in town of apartment complexes.  Nothing like being around the pool in 35 degree weather with a cross wind.  Luckily the sun came out and warmed us to at least 37 degrees.   The AD didn’t want to show the typical building shots for the annual which was good because we had lost almost all the leaves on the trees.  Se we wanted to set a different tone/mood for the photography.  Who knows what the final client will actually use for their annual.  That’s the way the ball bounces sometimes.  Ultimately, you have to shoot what makes everyone happy including yourself.  It’s always a dance.

It will warm up again and I will get out my beach blanket and lounge chair…and hot chocolate.  More soon.

Shooting with a 50mm standard lens

Bank Annual Report

We did a recent annual report and decided to use the 50mm lens for whatever shots we could.  I really loved the thin depth of field (1.8) and in this shot it worked very well.  I got used to using zooms and I think there’s something about using prime lenses that allows you to see differently.  Check out more on www.mlobiondo.com
