John Ricard Photography Workshop

So finals are finally over and I am back to doing water damage restoration in Connecticut to rake in the dough. This past sunday I had to opportunity to go to John Ricard's Studio in Manhattan to attend a studio lighting workshop.

The workshop, which was a test run for a future workshop John will be giving was awesome. The class which was originally supposed to be for five photographers ended up being just three (included myself) due to random cancellations, one of which is an interior designer and the other a "jack of some trades." I learned a great deal from John and enjoyed myself thoroughly.

Check out John's photography. He's shot a ton of huge names in Hip Hop including Trey Songz, T.I. and Flo Rida. He also has a wealth of photography related videos on his youtube worth checking out.

Here's a screen shot of one of the shots I took from the workshop shot with a massive PLM.

Ojolie's Animated Ecards

So the holiday season is upon us and it's getting time to send out the family holiday card but you didn't have time to round up the gang and pull those christmas sweaters out of the attic for an awkward family photo. That's where Ojolie's Animated Ecards comes in. They have all sorts of pretty animated ecards (much more appropriate than someecards) to send out to your loved ones.

Their christmas ecards  section is filled with a multitude of festive animated ecards that can be personalized with a message of good cheer and a photo (if you did happen get the ugly sweaters out). They also have a little holiday jingle to go along with the cards. I know that probably right after I finish this post I'll send one of these off to my mom. Get ready for the holidays with Ojolie!
