UPS man came yesterday!

Yesterday the UPS man came to visit. I think it’s official, I love the UPS man more than Santa! The UPS man IS our Santa. He brings photos and equipment! Yesterday, UPS Santa brought me 2 Photogenic CL500 strobes! If you don’t know what those are, they are daylight balanced “hot lights” or continuous strobes. Being Photogenic is my photography strobe sponsor of choice, they will send me any strobe can that I want or need, I send them great images and people to buy their great product lol. I had a private session last week and a guy purchased a 1250DR woot! These strobes will be used in my 6week lighting class!

Either way, here’s the photos of the new can. It’s continuous lighting:

My buddy is always with me when I get new packages delivered:

She got to it before I could:

She’s not that good at product photography, sorry:

    Move along, nothing to see here…

    Oh man! 

    I have a drama story for the blog, no time to write it since the cat is begging for food now, but I’ll be sure and share in a bit. It reinforces my whole attitude on never using another photographers images…even when I have permission lol. It’s not drama between the photographer and I, but someone who I think is being a little female (a dude who has no life) and his assumption that I don’t have my basis covered!

    That and I have some Photogenic news to share too.

    Ok so I’ve had some uber drama over the past few days. A clown of a guy I worked with tried to screw me, apparently he mistook my relaxed laid back demeanor as me being soft. His feelings are officially hurt now lol.

    ANNNND…I was on OMP and looking through my sent emails. Found this one:

    Wooow I was a geek back then lol.

    I obsessed over this model for about two years! Never did end up shooting her lol.

    Here’s Johnny!

    So I’m a few days late, so what.

    As promised, here’s a few images showing the wonderful toys i got last week from my lighting sponsor, Photogenic!

    I got a StudioMax AKC320A which is a plug in 300w strobe. An AKC320B which is a plugin AND battery powered strobe. An AKB Battery pack and the two big boys, a Photogenic 1250 and 1250DR.

    Today I had a shoot with Tony and Jon, the first thing they said was “woow those modeling lights are BRIGHT” Before I would use my Photogenic PL600 and another brand for kicker lights. Today, I used all photogenic and the room was LIT ya’ll! I’ll post some photos of that later.

    Colorado SuperShoots is currently the only photography workshop that’s sponsored by Photogenic, an honor I don’t take lightly!

    Photogenic is in the building!

    I didn’t think my strobes would get here until tomorrow or wednesday at the latest. I had such a crazy weekend this past weekend that I actually forgot about them! Today I was sitting around the house chilling, fighting with my oldest when the door bell rang. We’re expecting a 6×6 mom brag book for a client in my general portrait photography business and I went to the door expecting that. Boy was I surprised when it was the package from Photogenic!!

    Gonna keep you on pins and needles to find out what came in the box. I told you I was sponsored and I knew what I was getting last week but didn’t tell ya.


    Yes, I’m an ass I know this.
