Trick The Light

Trick The Light Paul LoveKing, Photographer

With a camera, I can step into another world. I can be part of a historic event, part of a sport I love, get in touch with nature, or share a moment in your life. When the moment is over, I can show you how I saw it. Sometimes I may see art, or sometimes I may simply be reporting the event as it happened. I am a visual person, and I hope I can share that with you. I have selected the name "Trick The Light" for my website because that is a key part of what I do. Photography is all about light, and knowing how to manipulate that is vital to taking a good picture.

At #Gencon I had the opportunity to do an #engagement shoot for Sarah and Ryan. Ryan was able to pull off a surprise engagement during a game of #Pokemon and it was very sweet. I wanted to do their shoot in locations that highlight #Indianapolis and Gencon and I always enjoy that part of the city at #night

The perfect accessory takes the outfit to the next level! I love photographing parties! When I discovered that the #wedding #reception is just another, bigger, more emotional #party that's what sold me on #weddingphotography and it's only getting better I am booking weddings and am available as a second shooter.

Do you remember the first photo you took that you were really proud of as a photograph? I still have mine, I shot this on film, printed it in the darkroom myself, in 1985. Why I printed it crooked like that I have no idea, but I did. And I held onto it. It was shoved into an old binder with other prints I shot on film way back when. I saw a photo of mine used in an ad today, and that picture is far better, but this is where I started. I still have the #camera too, it's a #canonFTb that my mother bought me, used. Nothing automatic. I used to take pride in being able to take pictures with it with no battery, because it did nothing automatic, and I didn't need the light meter. Don't know if the camera works, but I have it. Pictures that matter don't go in your phone, they should be printed. Put them in a book or hang them on the wall. Your phone is handy, but if it matters, print it. If you don't know how, ask a #photographer

Back to my roots, #fightphotography I took a very unusual path to #wedding photography. I started with fights. I love shooting #emotion the action is just a little something extra. These events are full of intensity, and people just don't have the time to be hiding their emotions. It wasn't until just last year that I discovered that weddings are the same thing, with different clothing and better catering.

It is important to try new things, and as a #photographer, shoot new subjects. Last week I had the good fortune to be able to photograph a #polo match. I've ridden a horse like 4 times in my life, and I can miss a golf ball, standing still, so count me as impressed!

Just finished my edits on the grand opening for Good Sweat Studio @GoodSweatStudio last saturday. Here's a shot of the ribbon cutting.

I wish I lived closer to this studio, the class looked like a lot of fun and the staff was great to work with.

Reposting some from the archives! Have I photographed you? The image is still available at https://www.trickthelight.com/

You can share the image direct from the site, order prints, or image files with no watermark. You can order t-shirts or mugs. If you want large canvas prints, prints on metal, or on foamcore posterboard, contact me directly, as I have other sources with better pricing now. Images look best printed, not on the screen of your phone. If you aren't sure, ask me in e-mail, and I can suggest the best print format for a specific image and budget.

As always, if you know someone in an image I post, please tag them. I don't have all these people friended on FB, and sometimes people find photos of themself years later. Maybe I have recorded a special moment that they want to share.

Interesting video, talks about Dunning Kreuger effect in a useful way.

Caution camera geeks, this post may trigger your need to buy camera stuff.

I got a new fisheye lens this weekend. Here's the test shot I took at my local friendly camera store. There's a reason I recommend Ace Photo Inc and it isn't customer friendly organization. Ask for help. That's why I recommend them. They have everything you need, even when you aren't sure exactly what that means. And they can find it.

Last night I shot an 80th birthday party, and it completely reaffirmed that this is what I should be doing. I love attending other people’s parties and meeting their families and friends.

This was a 70s soul train themed 80th birthday party, and it was awesome. The birthday girl is a wonderful, powerful woman whose strength and love has clearly influenced her entire family. It was a privilege to share the occasion with her and her family.
