3rd of July Fireworks!

I've been absent from the blogging world for a while! I have many things in the queue to post, so be looking over the next couple weeks for a variety of fun pictures.

Later in August I will be posting some pictures of my upcoming wedding in South Africa. You heard me right, South Africa - the country! I wish I could have seen a World Cup game there, but I must admit, it will be nice not to have the loads of people everywhere and the country should be in good shape after all the preparations for the FIFA World Cup.

You'll not only see some great wedding photos, but there is also a 3-day safari planned! In other words, it's an amazing opportunity and I am very much excited!

Ok, on to the topic of today. You might have read the title and wondered. Didn't he mean 4th of July Fireworks? Well, we meet up with family to watch fireworks at a golf course. It is always on the 3rd and is a fun time of music, food, games, and of course time with family and friends. Last year was our first year, and I didn't take the camera (unfortunately, because last years show was incredible).

This year I decided to get some photos. I should have grabbed some video too, but didn't think of it. Here is the equipment used:

Nikon D300s
Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
Feisol Carbon Fiber Tripod (CT-3442)
Markins Ballhead M-10

Now for the photos!

I wanted a few abstract photos and this one turned out to be Red, White, and Blue!

I hope you enjoyed my selection from the night.  Photographing fireworks can be a bit tricky.  Let me know if you tried it, and what you thought!

California here I come! Right back where I started from!

Ok, I'm not moving back to Cali or anything. Just coming back for a week and a half full of photography! I'm really excited!

I'll be there October 14-26. Here are the shoots so far:

-A charity golf tournament for one of my favorite non-profits (and former employer) World Vision International.

-A beautiful wedding in Temecula wine country!

-An amazing wedding in Pasadena!

-A few head-shot sessions around LA and OC

If you are interested in scheduling a session with me, let me know because times are booking quickly.

Available times:
Oct 18 - late afternoon to evening
Oct 20-22 - anytime
Oct 25 - late afternoon to evening

Obviously, I'm excited to see my family and friends as well! I've been in Colorado for a little over 3 months now and I have to tell you, I really don't miss California at all (except for family and friends of course!). Fall is here in Colorado and I love it!  Snow on the Rockies, leaves changing, a chill in the air letting us know that winter is right around the corner.  It's great!

I'm looking forward to my California visit.  It will be busy, but great fun with great people.  For those in California, I hope to see you when I'm there!

Jarod and Megan's Wedding

Here are some photos from Jarod and Megan's wedding in Utah.  It was such an amazing time with amazing people.
The beautiful couple!

Megan was gorgeous!  This looks like it should be the cover of a bridal magazine!

The guys in the tavern.

The lovely ladies.

The flower girls were so cute!

The guys decided to do a shotski! Bottoms up!


Of course the ladies wouldn't be outdone.  Here they are braving it.  I love Megan's look here!

Megan and Jarod...dancing the night away.

If you are ever in the Heber Valley of Utah (just south of Park City), check out The Blue Boar Inn.

Behind door #2...A New Car!!

I would have loved to have won a new car in a game show, but that didn't happen.  I did however purchase a new vehicle last night.

Being a new Colorado resident, I realized I needed a heavier all wheel drive or 4x4 vehicle.  Our Volkswagen Passat just wasn't cutting it (in more ways than one).

Today I had to take the car out and snap a few photos.  It is black of course, I am Brian Black you know!

Oh, and if you need a Ford or Chevy and are in Colorado, go see Adam over at Burt Ford in Parker!

This is our new 2009 Ford Edge SEL AWD.  One of the great features is the Sync system.  It is an amazing voice activated system for controlling your bluetooth enabled phone and has incredible iPod integration.  I highly recommend it!
