Temples Pictures: Selected, Edited and Uploaded

I have gone through every temple picture I have and selected my favorites and then from that set selected the best of those.

So far I have a gallery of 127
I can easily double that number with others that didn’t make the cut so far but I didn’t want to overwhelm people so I will stay with this quantity until at least the end of the year.

In the future I will continue to organize these galleries even more and add separate galleries for every temple

New Additions – Newsletter

I will continue to add new pictures. Including a set of upcoming Temple Square pictures with beautiful christmas lights.

To stay connected with news of any substantial additions to this gallery simply sign up for my new newsletter under the section Fine Art Print Specials
With every bit of news about new prints will be a corresponding discount code for print discounts.

DISCOUNTS

Right here on the blog I’ll say that if you order a print or digital file it is 25% off with the code “temples” (Good until further notice)

Also I will note that the prices of the temple pictures are much lower than my normal portrait prints or other travel/fine art prints.

More Discount: I will give a 55% off coupon code to anyone that signs up for my new newsletter under the section “Fine Art Print Specials” or “Anything Jarvie-esque”. (good until the end of 2011)

Yes for many products 55% off is barely the break even amount.

WHY? Because my newsletter is and will be very beneficial for me and people interested in my fine art pictures.
AND I think it’s a very good thing for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to have a picture of the temple throughout their house to remind them of their commitments to the lord and to become better people.

With any proceeds I get you can pretty much consider will help me to fund more trips to more and more temples. But for now I’m just excited about exciting a high volume of hopefully large (impacting) prints being ordered.

We were headed back to the car because I needed a light stand to make some of these work best… but I couldn’t pass this scene and this lighting up… so I made it work the best I can. Let’s not talk about the ones I coulda made work had I the light stand and pocket wizards… let’s just see the ones I did make happen.

This one was later and we can pretty much call this Night instead of Twilight

In the back is the Naval Academy where he went to school and that’s just what she wanted… some pictures with them and the memories in the background.

Twilight is awesome. (Not the books)

I shot them on this same bridge earlier in the day on the walk through campus if you remember.

OK then we went across the river to get a view towards the academy as you can see below. The picture above was the restaurant where we were shooting from.

And this location was the first stop in the morning which I’ll promptly show in the next post.

This was from a year ago. I was working on getting the lighting working and decided to try a couple without lighting.

Sometimes if you pose them they just don’t get the vision that you’re just getting profiles and silhouettes but I think next twilight I’ll have to try to get them to look cool.

This is a little teaser of the long engagement session I did yesterday… this was the end of a long day. I didn’t mind because I don’t get to shoot in the bay area very often so why not take a little extra time and take a bunch of pictures all over the place. Now next time I am asked to come back and shoot around here I’ll know what to expect and have some great ideas.

There’s a reason why the end of the photo shoot is always the best pictures… often because the lighting is the most dynamic and also because when you take your best pictures you decide then that you’re about done and therefore the best pictures were at the end.

But as for all the other hundreds of pictures all throughout San Fransisco you’ll have to wait to see those I’m sure.

As well as all the travel pictures and the wedding I did on Friday.

So we got up at the point and there were a whole slew of photographers taking pictures… everyone had a tripod and one of the guys asked what I was shooting at. 1/13th at 1.4 and he wondered where my tripod was… um yeah my tripod were the two flashes sitting on the posts.

In fact to exagerate the point I litterally shook and moved my camera As I took the pictures.

 007_DSC9443

Dustin wanted some pictures while we were traveling around in Hawaii.
One evening after sunset (twilight) I decided I could take a break and do some.

I laid the flash on a few rocks pointed it in a direction and told him to stand in front of it.

I walked around him shooting pictures and doing some different poses.

After a while I realized I didn’t have move at all… he stood in the same spot the whole time and I just moved around and adjusted my settings.
In fact the flash stayed in the same spot on the same settings the whole time.
I did have him jump in that spot so at the end he did move a little.

Just goes to show what you can do.
Here are some examples

 006_DSC9440

 009_DSC9445

To change it up I shot through things.

 004_DSC9425 003_DSC9423

Shooting away from the sunset/twilight made things much darker background obviously.

It was a busy busy day.

Day 4 of the charity shoot had me in the Studio for only one shoot and outside for 11.
It’s a really amazing experience to take 11 shoots in the same location. seeing 4 hours of changing lighting affect one area.

I was doing really short shoots so I couldn’t go far so that incoming groups could find me. Therefore I didn’t wander around as much as I usually do.
It really stretches the photographic ability to keep shooting in the changing lighting situations and keep shooting in a small radius and keep things fresh and now just go with what you did on the last one.

Of course I focused on the highlights of the area such as the mountain backdrop and the sections of trees that were still changing color.

The Location

This location is awesome because the mountains start blocking the sun about 3 hours before sunset (on average) which means it was perfect lighting starting around 4pm

The above picture was about half way through the shoot and already the mountain was providing a great backdrop with only a little bit of light compensation on the subject.
(More examples when fully edited)

Below is the last shoot of the night when it was pretty dark and sun had already been set for a bit… we were working on twilight light by then with a bunch of external lighting.

STUDIO

But I did start experimenting even more with how to make studio interesting and new.
Since I’m not a studio photog and have never even read a book or watched a blog on studio setups I was just winging it.

I guess that’s how I did my whole photo existence just coming up with random ideas.

But I must admit I’ve heard of the idea of lighting the backgrounds and even seen a good friend David Terry setting up a studio setup at Suzanne’s house shooting through something colorful to get some background color.
So I had these filter strips perfect for my SB-900’s which I got from Pictureline for pennies (well worth a stop at the Draper pictureline to grab, even if you never use them… like me up until this point, at least you bought a photo thing for a couple dollars when everything else is too expensive)

So anyway I’m playing around and having people pick random pictures and shooting the backgrounds. I’ll continue to experiment of course.

The Seasoned Charity Shoot PRO

Ashley is the only one to have been to all 3 of my charity shoots… at the first one I didn’t even know her.

She’s a way awesome model when she’s sure of herself and not worried she’s acting to vain in front of Angie who acts it up even more than Ashley.

So having been to all 3 Charity shoot either she’s super duper smart and/or cheap… haha.
But in any case it has always been a fun shoot with Ashley and Angie around!

 006_7151206 005_7151187

I was excited to do this shoot because I was offered to do baby shoots a while back but never could get the time or whatever, and I was happy to be doing pictures for a good friend, and even though this little girl is now a bit older I’m glad we could at least get some.

Model Photographers

Many might think Angela looks familiar and that’s because she’s featured in several parts on my blog ever since I did her wedding in California.
We refer to her as the “Beach Bride”

But angela is also a photographer and so is Liz the girl in the blue, and for that matter so is adrienne and Monica who came for shoots as well.
In fact yesterday 2 of my interns came with their families to get pictures taken. (We missed you Heidi and family)

In fact many people that took advantage  of the charity shoot were photogs.

I think it’s an amazing learning experience for a photographer to have pictures taken of themselves, I think it helps to be in the shoes of the future clients.
Now you know the feedback you should be giving when you’re the photographer.

You can tell Liz and Angela know what a good expression looks like and are able to capture it in the pictures.

I’ve always enjoyed shooting angela because she’s so creative and I think that will make her a great photographer one day.

And Liz was a joy to take pictures of because she had so many looks and was so fun to be around. The Camera loves you all… (as the saying goes)

The pictures were picked by my PA Adele.

I did this photoshoot with a lightstand. Usually I have an assistant there to hold lights.
But this made me consider the location of the of camera flash a little more carefully since I’m kinda lazy.
