Been a while... http://www.thedscustoms.com/blog/2014/1/been-a-while I haven't posted in a long long while, but I've been super busy. Trying to keep the photography going while my wife is in Nursing School. It's hard to do with having two other jobs. But I'm still going. Thinking of some cool stuff to do this year. I like new and different. I guess we'll see. Later! :)

Kinda Bored... http://www.thedscustoms.com/blog/2013/2/kinda-bored Let's start with we're having a sleepover with our nephews and niece. Too many kids!! My three plus three. AHHH!! Lol! It's all good. They're all good kids. So they're all watch Hotel Transylvania in the living room. I'm in my room doing this and watching music videos. 

On another note...I wanted to tell y'all about the coolest text I've gotten to date. I won't say which model it was, but we were talking about a shoot we are doing. She texted me about this shoot out of nowhere and I was wondering why she wanted me, of all people, to do the shoot. She knows alot of people and alot of photographers. I'm a nobody and amateur at best. She said she likes my work and one other photographer too. The reason she doesn't call him is because, she said, he always asks her out and hits on her. Ok...you're a photographer, not on a dating service. I hate these assholes who make the rest of us look bad cuz they can't get a date without picking up a camera to do it. Go find a woman and keep business and pleasure separate. Stupid ass guys! So anyway...she said that she feels really comfortable with me and I don't cross boundries. I was like....AWE!!! That's so dang sweet. I like when my models are comfortable around me! I'm pretty much a girl anyway....ask my wife. I'm more girly than she is. I think it comes down to my dad was always working when I was little and I saw how it was for my mom. I always said to myself that I will treat women in my life like they should be treated instead of ignored and give them the emotional affection they need. You know? Treat a lady like a lady. I'm old school that way. Holding doors open, ladies first, that kind of stuff. Wow...this is turning into a rant. But anyway....I wanted to put the text here word for word, but I accidentally erased it. :(

Lastly....I haven't really had any bad experiences with modeling photography and I hope, at some level, it's the way I treat them and I'm always trying to learn. So, THANK YOU to all models! I love all of you and hope to shoot more with you soon. Goodnight.

Photoshoot Yesterday http://www.thedscustoms.com/blog/2013/1/photoshoot-yesterday It was a great photoshoot with Miss Caroline Pinner!! She's pretty new to the whole thing and such a natural. You can give her a pose and she will just work the crap out of it. Shot around town for a while, then went to the river. I didn't actually think she would get in the water, but she did! It was soooo freakin cold too. We're going to do some more beach and water stuff when it warms up.

On another note...I got a text from Miss Trinh Doan asking if I wanted to collaborate with another photographer for shooting her and another model. I was like "heck yeah!" I've never done more than one model or photographer, for that matter. Going to shoot in Baton Rouge at an old pier. They are wanting to do a suicide girl shoot. So we'll see how it goes and hopefully get some great pictures out of it.

That's my rant for the day...oh well...back to work. See y'all!

Working, Working http://www.thedscustoms.com/blog/2013/1/working-working At the car lot today. Gotta love a second job. Just finished replacing the intake on a ford f150. That sucked. Now I'm just cleaning the cars up after all the rain we've been having. They were getting a little rough to look at.
 

One thing I'm looking forward to is a photoshoot this weekend! Oh well...let me get back to it. Gotta make that money! See y'all!

Almost done http://www.thedscustoms.com/blog/2013/1/almost-done Most of the photos are uploaded. All I have to do is fine tune some things. Also, I am going to add some sections that were not on my original website. Real Estate photos and Family shoots. :) I might start shooting some old buildings and landscapes. Maybe... Later!
