I only wished he would have been able to tell me his superpower - I’m guessing it was all the beer that made him forget. Just a thought.Shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and a EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM with a custom white balance and fill flash.

Title: Happy Hour.I can’t take credit for this… as it was emailed to me today. Had to share!The Seven Levels of Photography

The Snap. Just capture the moment. Point and click. It’s a Moose isn’t it? What more do you want? Will be shared in the bar that evening. With laughs and mojitos. 
The iPhone Snap. The snap but cooler. No unnecessary weight. Able to text while lining up the shot. And ring for help while bear approaches. 
The Picture. Bit of simple preparation e.g. sun behind the photographer. Sun dappled water etc. Will be sorted and kept in carefully annotated digital album. 
The Photograph. Chosen carefully. Much functionality of digital camera understood. Framing done carefully. Some will be printed and framed and hung in the den. Others will become Christmas cards. 
The Shoot. The picture will be taken and re-taken until perfect. A beautiful girlfriend will sit restlessly on a rock nearby. Later editing may well be carried out to enhance the beauty of Banff, Alberta, Canada. 
The ‘Artist at Work’. Tripod, full portfolio of lenses will be in use. Nothing will be ‘as is’, all will be ‘an impression’. 
Camera Nullus. Observe, enjoy and be in the moment.

Title: Hopfenkatze.I know I always say I have the best job… but in many ways I just do! This is one of my favorite images from last weekends Hoptoberfest in Grand Rapids, Michigan. For a first year event this one really seemed to go perfectly. People were out in attendance, the food was awesome and the music was rocking. Of course, I may have drank on to many beers that night - but that is a whole different blog to tell! =) SIDE NOTE: Blogging about Hopcat has me craving some of their Crack Fries and Mac ‘N Cheese like no other!!! I think I know where I’m going for dinner tonight.
