wedding shoot

  I came back last night full of energy!  The wedding was so much fun.  I wish Matt and Lisa all the luck in the world!

  The primary shooter was Melissa St. Laurent and we learned so much from each other.  I taught her about her camera and she taught me about wedding photography. (She just made the switch to digital)  She wants to work with me the future!

 

 

  During the reception I tried something totally different, using my wide angle and the pictures came out fantastic!  I got the idea from one of the TA’s at school, Chris Shelley.  He is the one that suduced me to the dark side of photography.  I was taking portrait class and he came in and started playing with the wide angle lens and got me hooked.  Here is an image from that day.

 

 This is Howard and he in one of the film instructors at school.  Everyone who has seen this shoot loves it.  (Well, except my wife)  His friend’s and family all think it looks just like him.

About John-Roy Photography

Photography is the greatest form of self expression. It communicates with my soul; a kind of a “catharsis scream”. This offers me a mental release from my professional career. After using my right brain all day, it is nice to use my left brain to create something meaningful. This brings a yin and yang to my life. When I pick up my camera after work, I prefer to shoot inanimate objects. Using light, shadows and selective focus, I am attempting to give the objects a life force; allowing them to tell a story. Because of this, I sometimes tend to become lost in my perception of light and shadows. It allows me to constantly visualize different angles and perspectives of spaces and even people around me. When I photograph people, I am drawn to capturing them in communal areas. I usually try and catch people off guard to create a pensive state of being which is a window into their souls. You would be surprised how much people tend to let their guard down and become relaxed when they think no one is watching. (Ever notice how differently children behave when they know they are being watched?) I’ve come to this place of artistic expression after experimenting with several other approaches to photography. I finally listened to an art director and a close friend of mine and I redirected my work to reflect my own true artistic expression.
