Friday Fun – Boys Vs. Girls Mini Bowling!

by Zach & Jody on October 16, 2009, posted in Friday Fun

There comes a time when people need to connect with each other (I’m speaking to photographers here!) outside of their professions and what they do.  AND it’s super important (and fun) to invest in your relationship with your spouse and with other couples!  Not to ostracize those who aren’t married but there are certain times when ya just need to hang with other married folk and build those relationships.

Sooooooooooo for those who follow us on Twitter and Facebook you know we had an open hang out night for anyone who was married and a photographer or in the wedding profession circles, and we had a fun night of  MINI-BOWLING, Boys Vs. Girls! GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!  Only one rule existed – No business talk allowed!!

It goes without saying, but we added the score board anyway just to show how bad the guys rocked the girls’ faces off! What up?!! We had a blast and here are some shots from the night!

What an amazing time we all had! Afterward, we all headed to Starbucks in Franklin to have some real face to face time before we called it a night.

The rest who came out who have not yet been named:
Bill & Deanna First Dance Pictures Videography
Jennifer from Dynamic Video and hubby Christian
Jonathan & Blakley who renovate homes (2 or so weeks new to Nashville from TX) and are photography hobbiest turning pro :)

Sorry for those of you who were unable to make it!

For those of you who missed the Twitter and Facebook notices and want to be in the loop on our next married wedding vendor get-together, email us at Jody@GrayPhotograph.com and put in the subject: “Married Couples Hang-out.”

Jody says that the girls will WIN next time!!!  Whatever we end up doing :o )

Yeah, so the title of this post is a little crazy but that is the only way I could describe the coolness of this couple. David & Tammy Molnar are amazing international wedding photographers based right out of old Nash-Vegas and are really great friends of ours. So, just like many of our photographer friends who take awesome photos, they tend to not have very many awesome photos of themselves. :) So they have gone about it the hard way by setting up their tri-pod and running back to the camera to take self-portraits as they travel all over the world shooting. So, when they asked us if we could do a personal shoot of them, we were honored! It is always a big task to shoot someone that does what you do for a living, so the pressure was on to rock it out! It was not hard, though, because as you can see these two are HOT!

We had a ton of fun shooting around Franklin and capturing their fun and quirky personalities. These guys are great and are definitely some good friends to hang out with and spend real quality time together. We hope you two enjoy the shots and we hope everyone else enjoys looking at your gorgeousness!!

We will be doing our IN-CAMERA: Shooting & Post workshop on Sunday the 13th and our IN-CAMERA: Light workshop on Monday the 14th.

Overview of the Gray Photography IN-CAMERA Workshop Series

- Want to learn how we are able to achieve the look of all our images without the aid of PhotoShop?
- Want to learn how we are able to edit an entire wedding in 2.5 hour solely using Lightroom?
- Want to learn how we are able to create and control light and get phenomenal images in any lighting situation and then apply that knowledge to your own style?

Our IN-CAMERA series of workshops actually show you how to shoot images that amaze right in the camera. This series of workshops will be held in Jacksonville Beach, Florida and feature class time, hands-on shooting with professional models, post-production and/or image critiques and much more. These workshops are fun, informative, and a great time to hang out with and meet other photographers who want what you want – great images without having to spend hours behind a computer screen editing!

IN-CAMERA: Shooting & Post

This one-day intensive workshop will focus on shooting your images correctly in-camera from shutter click to print.  Tired of having to fix all of your images on the computer?  Tired of adjusting your images one by one and spending so much time editing?  We will teach you how to get amazing images right inside the camera – images you would be proud to show a client right there!  Includes class time and group shoot.
This workshop will cover: Getting correct color, exposure, natural light – where to find it and how to control it, and a full demonstration of our complete post-production work flow in Adobe Lightroom.
Requirements: Basic knowledge of your DSLR with at least one fixed aperture lens (non-fixed aperture lenses are welcome!)
Bring it if you got it:  Laptop with Adobe Lightroom 2 installed to follow along through our workflow

IN-CAMERA: Light

This workshop is for the photographer who is ready to take their in-camera images to the next level. If you want to learn how to shoot in any lighting situation and create light instead of looking for it, if you want to enhance your images in a way that few do, then this is the workshop for you. This class will focus on advanced off-camera lighting using high-powered studio strobes to create a unique look for your work. This one day workshop includes class time and group shoot.
This workshop will cover: Off-camera speedlight control, manual studio strobes, how and when to use off-camera lighting, lighting ratios, lighting styles and which ones to use and when and much, much more!
Requirements: Overall knowledge of your DLSR, full understanding of controlling your camera on manual via adjusting ISO, shutter speed & aperture, at least one fixed aperture lens
Bring it if you got it: Pocket wizard, laptop for an anonymous critique at the end of the day

This class is limited to only 8 students, so sign up now to ensure a seat!!
