Color themes

Category: Wedding

Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. This past wedding season shades of blue were very popular. The fun part of color is that you can add to almost every item imaginable. I love it how couples combine color in their bouquets, ties, cuff links but also the cakes.

Using color can help you create a personal feel to the day and by that make your wedding day even more you, make it complete. And what is your favorite color?

Slaughter girl

Category: Personal

I am a Slaughter girl, Karin Slaughter that is. Thriller writer, can you believe that this is her real name? Well it is and not without reason because I think she is one of the best thriller writers around. Make sure you keep at the end of your seat with every book. Wondering what you have missed want the story unravels. It took me a while to get there but when I read Indelible from the Georgia series I was hooked. I got online and ordered every one I could find. After reading Beyond Reach that had a devastading ending I took a step back. Why would I want to read another Slaughter after this? I know it sounds dramatic but read it and you will understand.

But with everything time heals all wounds and I started with the Will Trent Atlanta series. Karin took on a new perspective with these books. Now the series converged into one and when I got Undone and Broken I read them back to back. But nothing prepared me for the last one Fallen. Wow what a story. A rollercoaster ride, that left me breathless. If I can recommend one book this is the one. A 100% must read. Now you know my taste so tell me what is your favorite book?

Wedding inspiration

Another post of wedding inspiration as wedding season is slowly coming to a close and a lot of couples are planning their wedding for next year. This one is about old timers. When we got married, after booking a wedding suite and photographer it was one of the items we wanted to get done as soon as possible. Sports cars and oldtimers are favorite to use as wedding cars. And when you see the different types of old timers that are still running I can understand why.

A week ago I was at an old timer event and I had so much fun capturing a number of beauties. Makes you want to choose on to drive you around on your wedding day. So feast your eyes and be inspired.

Pocket Wizard

Category: Photography

It was quit stressful the first time setting up the light stand, the flash, the pocket wizard. Even though I used it a number of times, practised with it but actually using it at a wedding was well intimidating. Even purchasing an off camera flash set up was not an easy. With all the options available it makes choosing even more difficult and the internet has so many opinions so deciding on a flash trigger was quit a task. I will show more of my off camera light set up soon but in this post I want to discuss the triggers.

There are many ways to trigger a flash. Using the infra red is an option or a various range of flash triggers. Would I go for an unknown product or a legit brand that everybody knows. After going back and forth I decided on Pocket Wizards the plusII for the off camera set up and the mini TT1 for on my camera. The main reason for this last choice is simple. I wanted to have an option that I can trigger my on camera flas without a whole construction to the the plusII attached to my camera. The TTI has a flash shoe mount which allows the flash on top of the camera.

I started out using the on camera flash in manual mode but switched to ETTL. One tip if the flash does not trigger when in ETTL mode trigger once when in manual mode and it will work like a charm.
