I hope everyone had a very happy holiday break! Sorry I haven't been able to post as much but I have spent lots of time with family and friends. Matt and I recently took a trip up to his mountain house in the Poconos in PA. It was a really relaxing time and we were able to capture some really great shots.
I am learning how to use Matt's Nikon D50 and I think I'm getting a lot better. I think I have a good eye for framing up shots, but I still near to learn all the technical aspects of photography. I took a million pictures of this beautiful mountain sunset over looking an icy beach. It was breathtaking and very cold, but well worth it. Matt has a Cannon 550D which is really sweet and shoots in HD.
Matt was able to capture enough footage to make a small short film called January. It is really well done in my opinion and showcases the beautiful icy lake and "winter" perfectly. He got a lot of great shots at night when no one was on the mountain which made it seem abandoned and very eerie.
Please take a few minutes to watch his film because it compliments my pictures above and shows you how much time we spent at this lake getting the most perfect shots. :)
I hope everyone had a great New Year's Eve and I look forward to a awesome 2011!
