New logo!

I'm pretty excited right now! There's LOTS going on here, and there's plenty more that I'll be sharing in the days and weeks coming up.

The first thing I wanted to tell you about is that I just concluded a logo design contest over at www.48hourslogo.com . In 4 days I received 80 different logo designs from 10 different designers. 48 hours logo is a great way to have a logo designed by professional designers, and I highly recommend it if you are in the market.


Pretty sweet, huh? So check back here true believers, lots more great stuff coming up!

Melissa + Duane 10.2.2010

Was privileged to shoot an awesome wedding last Saturday when Melissa and Duane were married. Got to know the bride's great family a bit as well, and now, I will be taking the bride's brother's senior photos! Good connections and good times....

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Senior Photo Special!

I have a senior photo special starting up for those of you still in need of them!

1-2 hours of photography with unlimited wardrobe changes and unlimited locations. The best photos are fully edited and given to you on a dvd along with a print release which allows you to go anywhere and print what you want in any quantity! That's a big change from the two poses other photographers allow you as they try to fit you into their package "deals".

Email me at stevelewisphotography@gmail.com for info on Senior Photos in the WIlkes-Barre/Scranton area! Or you can call me at 570-592-2938. What are you waiting for? Call me today!

And since we all know posts are better when accompanied by a photo of a pretty girl, here's Ashlee!

Yes, true believers, I have my first follower here at the ole' blog.

Author Brandon Halsey has taken two huge leaps, he has published his own book, and he is a follower of this blog!

I would recommend for you to check him out here.

Enjoy!

Are You A NEPA Bride?


Are you getting married soon? Need a photographer? It would be an honor if you would consider me.

Cuz I'll take like, nice pictures of you and stuff.....

WIlkes-Barre/Scranton Senior Pictures!

Who's taking the oh-so important senior photographs of your children? Is there a decorative screen


or a faux potted plant


anywhere near the photographer?

If so, beware of boring old-fashioned senior pics that your children will hate for years to come. I take cool senior pics like this


Pics that your kids won't be embarrassed to show their friends. Let your kids be themselves, because when you allow them to be themselves, they open up to the camera and their spirit shows through. And that's what you really want to show the relations, right?

NEPA Wedding Photographer!

Is that how you googled for your wedding photographer?

This is a shot from a shoot I did this weekend. Hope you enjoy, there will be more soon!

Large Photos!

You might remember how I was perplexed at Blogger and it's propensity to shrink my images down. Well, I consulted super blogger guru and photographer Rita over at coffeeteaphotography and she was able to answer my questions.

Blogger will no longer mess with me and my photos. Just look!


Here is a teaser of Kerry, the girl I shot the other night. Look for more soon!

Northeast PA Bridal Expo

Yes, I heard another of those commercials for the Northeast PA Bridal Expo on the radio this morning.

Are you a bride in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area? Are you going?

Isn't it easier to go online to find your wedding vendors?

Ok. I'm going back to my iced caramel coffee. Have a great day!

Here is another from my shoot with the lovlee Ashlee!

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Brides!

The Northeast PA Bridal Expo is coming up in a few weeks. But you don't need to go there to find your photographer. I'm right here! Below is not a bride, but you could look this good too!

104.4!

Hey all! That's not a cool new radio station, that was my temperature last Saturday!

I was ridiculously sick last week. So sick in fact, that I had to cancel a photo shoot! Can you believe it? 104.4 fever!

I'm all better now, and we have re-scheduled the shoot for tomorrow (Saturday) night.

So hopefully, they"ll be a shot or two up from it tomorrow or Sunday.

Urban Janelle

Heyo!

Here it is, the photo I hoped to bring you this evening is here! I had a shoot last evening with Janelle and the shots turned out very nice. Let me know what you think!

Urban Janelle

Last Evening

I had a photo shoot last evening in Wilkes-Barre. I'm hoping to get a shot up from it tonight. It went well overall except that the model was 15 minutes late.

MODELS! Golden rule No 1: Do not be late to a booking. It's not very professional and it could hurt your chances of being hired again. If last evening was a shoot with people doing hair and makeup and lighting, and they were standing around sipping skinny half caff latte's until you showed up, it would have been the last time that client would have hired you.

I'm just sayin'.

But no harm no foul. I'm not hard to get along with. She called, she apologized. Hopefully it was a one shot lateness.

So below is another photo of the lovlee Ashlee.

As always, until I can figure out why my images are so teensy, click on it to see a larger version.

Til' tonight, true believers!

A New Start

Here's some more of my shoot from a few weeks ago with the lovelee Ashlee.

For some reason this blog won't show my images as large as I'd like. I have it optimized for up to 1000 pixels wide, but I get these anorexic representations of the actual photos. I'm irritated.

Click the image for a somewhat larger view.



But what can you do?

I'm redesigning everything, that's what.

"You've only started to blog and you're going to change it all?" you say.

Yep.

New logo, new watermarks, new look to the blog. I just don't like any of it.

Any suggestions, true believers?

UPDATE: As you can see, I fixed it!

All you have to do is be the first to leave a comment on the above photo, and you get a free portrait. It could be of you, your kids, your dog, your champion roses, whatever you want!

Well, there it is.

A While Back

What happened a while back? This photo was taken a while back in August 09 of my wife, and I only decided to post the thing now. Granted, this blog has only been going for a few months, but this is such a lovely image, it should have been up before. Well, here it is now for all to see!

Portrait Of A Bus Driver

I was lucky enough to take some shots of my friend Lou that drives the bus for the Luzerne County Transportation Authority. He wanted some shots of himself and the bus on Public Square, since as we all know, they don't stop around the Square anymore. We got some of those, plus a few interesting shots in the bus.

Flower Boarding


So I'm taking apart this wooden flower box in the backyard that's 8 years old and falling apart. When I looked at the board and thought of the flowers that had survived Easter, I had an idea. Hope you like.

Kirby Park Critter

He thought he could avoid me by going 30 feet up a tree. Silly rodent.

Fix It In Post




































This photo was taken by photographer Len Carsillo. I processed the bottom photo to show you a bit of the process involved in Wedding photography.

First, Len took a shot of the bride and groom with a wider angle lens to capture the whole moment.

Next, I took the original image and did some post-production editing to capture the essence of the photo.

Which do you prefer?

Stone Tunnel

This is a stone tunnel thingy in the woods I found. I could have used some fill flash I suppose, but I liked the shadows from the trees. I cross-processed this image for the interesting highlights.

Here's one from a group of Christmas portraits I did this past year.I like how the subject pops from the background.

Snake Rail Fence HDR

Here's my first entry into the HDR pool. Not a stunning example of High Dynamic Range photography technique, so I may have to get the camera and get shooting today or tomorrow. So stay tuned!

Pretty Young Lady

Here's a pretty lady I shot last Summer. Can't beat her eyes! Or those cheeks!

Running On The Beach

Here is my daughter running at Rehoboth Beach, DE. It was an excellent day to shoot, and I got plenty of good shots.
