A Big Event

Hello, just wanted to share some cool news. After getting back from a meeting in Eureka Illinois I found out that I will be the "official" photographer for the Mikhail Gorbachev event. Along with this title comes a lot of responsibility, as you can imagine. If you're not familiar with the event you can check out the details here >> Eureka College This event will span, roughly, a 12 hour period. From 10 am to 10 pm. So without saying anything else, it will be a long day requiring a lot of stamina.

In Christ,
David Price

Nikon D90

I'm in the process of looking at the pros and cons of upgrading to a Nikon D90 later on spring. As a photographer, this camera offers some nice upgraded features from its predecessor the D80. However, I'm also looking at it with some hopes that it would be able to double for some video projects as well. It is well known in my circles that the D90 shoots video. It is also well known that it has it's limitations. While I won't bore you with the details I have found a couple of video's online which demonstrate the D90s video function.

Take a look and let me know what you think

This first video's B-footage was shot with the D90 other footage such as the interviews I believe were shot with another camera.

This is another cool vid that shows off the Nikon D90s video capabilities.

Paris - D90 from SPP on Vimeo.

This video was shot entirely on the D90. But that's missleading, they had a few camera add-ons that I wouldn't able to afford.

And yet another cool D90 Vid!

Let me know what you think!


eCommerce instituted

For an event coming up, the client requested that I provide the capability for their guest to purchase event photos. with 1000 guest the traditional method (email) would not be cool. I did some looking around and found the eCommerce solution I'm planning on going with., You can view my account at I currently have one test album up, but you're are more than welcome to purchase any of the photos if you feel so inclined.

Anyway, I would love some feedback on this new addition to the Black Olive Photographic web family. Let me know!

Shooting in Peoria

So my title is a little misleading, while I don't think Peoria's crime rate is the greatest statistic I don't think anybody was shot (with a gun) Saturday. I'm actually referring to a photography. As you know I try and get out and shoot with a group of photographers. This event is what I've been calling "Experimental Shoots" (It needs a new name, have any suggestions?).

Anyway it was cold this past weekend, but the shots acquired made it well worth it! Check em out at the links below and let me know what you think!
