The PA fans had an infusion of NJ blood as well since the Starland Ballroom show had been canceled due to damage from Hurricane Sandy.

Guitarist Tim Sult had this to say about the show; "It's kind of sad that the Starland is closed down for the rest of the year, but honestly, I consider Allentown to be west NJ-maybe it's not physically in Jersey but spiritually, it's nj all the way." 

Enjoy some images from the show. If you'd like to check out the gallery click here "Clutch Gallery"

Ataco, San Salvador Wedding Session http://www.photos.jargapix.com/blog/2013/1/ataco-san-salvador-wedding-session Check out Alejandro & Regina's day after session today in Ataco, San Salvador.  We had a great time walking around the town and finding cool spots to  make pictures. All the walls and crafts you see are hand painted by the locals who were very welcoming and helpful. When some military soldiers came by to see what was going on....we incorporated them into the session.  Enjoy!

Do you photograph Sweet 16 or Quinceañeras? http://www.photos.jargapix.com/blog/2012/12/do-you-photograph-sweet-16s This is a question I get often during the year. The answer is, Yes, I do! I really like Sweet 16s, except for when I realize that my daughter, who is 4 as I write this, will one day be the girl wearing the poofy dress and dancing with...me. I go home and hug her tightly and remind her that she'll never stop being a little girl to ome. For that reason, I find it an honor to be chosen to capture this special moment in a family's life. It's a big responsibility and one I don't take lightly.

Here is a brief slideshow of some Sweet 16 & Quinceañeras I have had the privilege to cover.

If you'd like to see more images and complete Sweet 16 & Quinceañera parties click >>HERE<< 

I hope you like what you see and await your call when it's your turn to celebrate your daughter's coming of age. It happens way to quick so make sure you have someone there to capture the celebration.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Ralph Lauren Baby Liam Holiday Photo Session http://www.photos.jargapix.com/blog/2012/12/ralph-lauren-baby-liam-holiday-photo-session I don't photograph alot of babies, but when I do they are awesome! Liam turned 6 months old and it was time for his big moment in front of the camera. I think he did awesome! He smiled and giggled and really hammed it up when the time arose. His parents, Humberto & Lorena, who own Lorena's Restaurant were great hosts allowing me into their home to capture the special moments and they kept Liam smiling and laughing.  He was dressed head to toe in Ralph Lauren and wore it quite well. 

Here are some images from the shoot. Enjoy.

Those of you Photogs with kids can appreciate how hard it is to get them to take a normal picture for you. I bribed Alexa with sugary treats of deliciousness for this image. I didn't want a smile and she delivered. Daddy loves you very much muñeca!

This is the last of the Sigma 35 f/1.4 sample pics before my review. I have an event this weekend and will put it through some low light testing. Keep an eye out for my review next week.

We had already rescheduled twice because of time conflicts and weather we weren't sure what the storm would bring so we had to make it happen. Luckily, they were both gamers and we rocked Rutgers Gardens!

It was a little bit cloudy...

Chris was more the calm and collected type. They really compliment each other well.

Katherine & Chris have known each other since grammar school, have been dating since high school and are getting married on their 10 year anniversary. Great touch! They enjoy going going to Red Bull Soccer games, hanging out with friends and family, drinking wine and watch movies and tv shows...not sure if they're into Zombies or not. I"ll find out next time we meet. :)

Check out some images of them being awesome...

Anthony's Surprise Proposal to Raechel in Sinatra Park Hoboken, NJ http://www.photos.jargapix.com/blog/2012/7/anthonys-surprise-proposal-to-raechel-in-sinatra-park-hoboken-nj I was contacted by Anthony's sister about his plan to propose to Raechel. She asked me if I thought it was a good idea to photograph it...my answer was of course; "Heck freakin' yeah it is!" I spoke with Anthony and he was game and impressively prepared. He had made a photo book of their time together complete with an image of the ring on the back cover to initiate the proposal. We devised a plan to put me close to the action. Here it goes...

I asked Anthony to meet me at Sinatra Park where the first met and walk near me while I was pretending to talk to a client. When they got close I hung up and asked them if I could take a quick picture of them to test my exposure while my couple arrived. He agreed and Raechel thought I was a freak. jaja

Sinatra Drive, Hoboken, Surprise Proposal

Anthony then proceeded to take a book out of my bag and hand it to her to look through. It contained images from their time together. Cool stuff! Since Raechel knew I was there waiting for a "client" I was now able to float around and grab the moments. Still a weirdo though I was later told. 

Sinatra Drive, Hoboken, Surprise ProposalThe last page is reached and the ring comes out. The back cover is a picture of the ring and now it's on her finger...

Sinatra Drive, Hoboken, Surprise ProposalPhotogs live for this kind of emotion. We normally don't get a chance to be here.

Sinatra Drive, Hoboken, Surprise ProposalYes, that really just happened...
Sinatra Drive, Hoboken, Surprise ProposalLet's go have some fun.

Don & Mistica's Absolutely Awesome Wedding! http://www.photos.jargapix.com/blog/2012/3/don-misticas-absolutely-awesome-wedding I got a call from my buddy Christopher Atwood over at Absolute Events who said he had met with a very cool couple who was getting married. I work with Chris often and always recommend him to my couples who are looking for a rockin' reception. Chris DJs and MCs the night away and gets everyone into the fiesta! Check him out here ==> Absolute Events

Don & Mistica are a funny and vibrant couple who had their wedding ceremony @ Mindowaskin Park in Westfield, NJ. It was a great ceremony attended by family and close friends. The reception was held @ The Westwood in Garwood, NJ. Flowers by the Westwood provided the color in the reception. 

Their only request was to take fun pictures that captured the emotion of the day. Mission accomplished! Enjoy some of the images from this fun day...

Sherine & Robert's Wedding @ The Merion http://www.photos.jargapix.com/blog/2012/3/sherine-roberts-wedding-merion Sherine & Robert are a pretty awesome couple who called me after seeing my work at a friends wedding. I was very excited when they told me the were getting hitched at The Merion because it's a very cool venue. We met a few months prior to do an Engagement Session @ Valley Forge National Park. I think it went rather well, don't believe me... check it out >>here<< :^D Needless to say Sherine was excited her moment was published and you know what, so was I.

The big day arrived and we were all ready! Here's a recap of their Wedding. I hope you enjoy it.

Current workflow and file Back Up System http://www.photos.jargapix.com/blog/2012/3/current-file-management-and-back-up-system The glitz and glamour of covering Weddings and Events is exciting and delivers a great rush the day of...but after the cake has been eaten, the whiskey has been drunk and the thunderous DJ bass booms have gone quiet all that's left is the Photog and his full CF memory cards. What happens next is just as important as the moment you compose the frame and press the shutter. File management and more importantly the back up of the files can be pretty complex and expensive, but more on that later. I have read a lot of articles online and adopted a pretty simple straightforward system which has worked for me for the past 2 seasons. Thanks to all the folks who shared their knowledge online and I hope this post can help someone out there.

 

Here's a gear list of what I work with in terms of file storage.

Nikon D700s

Sandisk 16gb 60MB/s Cards (4) If I need more than this I have (4) 8gb 60MB/s Card

Lexar UDMA Card Reader

iMac 27" w/ 1TB Hard Drive and 16GB RAM

Vantec NexStar MX Dual External Enclosure

(2) 1.5TB 3.5" Hard Drives

Kingwin EZ-Dock 2

(2) 1TB 3.5" Hard Drives

Kingwin EZ-Dock

Western Digital My Book Live 1TB

PhotoMechanic

Lightroom 4 

Zenfolio (Use my Referral Code :^D : UJE-8PS-P8Z )

Carbon Copy Cloner

 

I currently cover between 50-60 jobs a year so I haven't needed a bigger setup than this. However, I think after this season I've outgrown it and have already found some solutions that will work when I update. This is a general and quick overview of what I use and what I do. I will make a more detailed breakdown if the masses request it :^D.

 

 

Here are some images of the enclosure when closed.

Vantec Nexstar MX Drive EnclosureStomped_001

 

Here's the enclosure open with 2 drives from 2011 that I removed. I installed new drives for 2012. Notice the Firewire 800 port. They don't seem to make this anymore. Weird. It's pretty fast but after this season I'm going Thunderbolt.

Vantec Nexstar MX Drive EnclosureStomped_002

 

The EZ-Dock 2 will house 2010 & 2011 drives. Their backup drives are already stored away and the files are all backup to cloud storage in case I lose both drives. This drive is USB 2.0. It's slower than FW800 but it's not my main working drive so it's OK.

Kingwin EZ-Dock2Stomped_003

 

I used to use this drive before I got the 2. I've regulated this one to 2.5" backup duty. 

Kingwin EZ-DockStomped_004

 

I picked up this nifty little NewerTech Storadrive Case from OWC. Pretty neat for keeping things organized on your desk.

External Drive StorageStomped_005

 

I use the WD My Book Live to back up my iMac w/ Time Machine. I set it up once and never touched it again. I got it because it's Ethernet connected and it's easy to transfer files from PC to Mac. I've ditched the PC though so now it's just a backup drive. It's cool because it backs up my main iMac drive and the space matches but I don't like that you can't partition the drive. I also backup my iMac to a cloud.

Western Digital My Book Live Stomped_006

 

Here's the full setup behind my iMac. Yes, there's 6 drives in total. The main drives are the most important to me now. I've gradually grown into this system but by the end of this year I'm getting a 6 Bay Thunderbolt Tower to house all the drives in 1 spot. They won't be RAID, they'll work as JBOD and 3 will mirror each other. 

iMac, Nexstar MX, WD My Book LIve, Kingwin EZ-Dock2Stomped_007

 

Looks kinda messy back there but the new iMac's keep everything neat in front. I can't wait until there are drives with no wires. 

iMac 27&quot; Photographer setupStomped_008

 

 

So, here's the system I use after I get home from a gig. 

  1. The first thing I do is import the files from the cards to my external working drive labeled JPix 2012. In order to do this I use PhotoMechanic because it's FAST! I shoot in RAW so this is very important for me. The faster cards and reader help out. 
  2. I then cull the images in PM and delete the ones that didn't make it. This is BY FAR the best feature for me in PM. I zip through 1500-2000 images and don't wait for any images to render. It's awesome! Saves tons of time. 
  3. I do another quick cull and then highlight all the images and drag them into LR4.
  4. LR4 opens and I choose Add to Catalogue because the files are already in my main drive. No need to reimport. LR4 will then generate previews from the files. This is very quick. Saves much time from importing within LR4.
  5. Once I have the files in LR4. I open Carbon Copy Cloner and copy the files from my Main Drive to a Backup Drive labeled JPix 2012(Backup) It basically mirrors the main drive.
  6. As CCC does it's thing I begin making Global Adjustments & edits to the files in LR4. I try very hard to get it right in camera so I don't have to make wild time consuming edits in Post. This is just making sure all the exposures and WB match.
  7. Once that's done, I export all the basic edited files to Jpeg and upload them to Zenfolio for backup #3. Yeah, it's not the RAW files but I have 2 copies and like I said, I try to get it correct in camera so I don't really need them after the initial edit. That's just me. Feel free to upload 40-50GB of Data for backup if you'd like.
  8. I then create galleries for the client to view and from there they choose their favorite images for the Album or products. Zenfolio will take their selection and export me a file which LR4 can read and show me their selections in a collection. I can then edit those RAW files further and make them print ready.
  9. During this whole process Time Machine is making backups of my iMac so if I ever have a drive failure, I just put in a new one and I'm up and running again after Time Machine restores my system to the way it was before the crash. Luckily I've never had to do this but you can bet it will happen, all drives fail at some point.

 

I think that's pretty much it. I could go into further detail but that's a story for another day. As I said so far it's worked well and the combination of my backup drives and Zenfolio have already recovered some files for me. I'm anxious and curious to see how the Thunderbolt drives will work. I'm reading their gonna be super fast which means image rendering and transfers will be  faster. Speed = time & we know that time = money and sanity in in this world.

 

 

Thanks for reading this and let me know what you think of my system or if you have any questions.

As my business grows I want to be able to offer my clients the best choice of products. I still have and offer my previous model and have added this line to enhance the options. Here's a look at the new Album with a custom design by Dani @ My StoryBook Romance
