After strolling up and down the Tempe New Years Block Party, The Hour finally struck. This image is, to me, the First Kiss of the New Year. They didn't see me take the photo with all the excitement going on, but I did show them the photo and hand them my card. In honor of their gracious permission to post this image, I have posted it first. Now this is the way to start the New Year!
This shot is generally unmodified with just some minor levels/curves adjustments but the color is as it was in the camera.
I live in Phoenix AZ, and have been working at the cable company since 1989, (I'll let you do the math...it depresses me too much!). I have a dog and a drum set at home that I play with/on regularly. Oh...and a computer. Duh...
I shoot all Canon gear. Currently the 40D. I mainly focus on Glamour/Beauty/Artistic Nude photography, but I also love Event & Street photography!
