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.

Cagezilla 60 - PaulLoveKing

Images from Cagezilla 60 last saturday night are up on my website now! It was a great night of fighting and I have some exciting pictures to share with you. As always you can buy prints and digital images with the green "buy photo" button, with no watermark. If you comment on a picture you are in, I will post a copy on FB with a smaller watermwark. You can share directly to social media by clicking on the smaller version of the picture, and then from the larger view just click the tradition share image icon on the left side of your screen. Or at least that's where the buttons are on my computer.

Couple Opted to Swap Out Traditional Flower Girls for All 4 of Their Grandmothers

Here’s a reminder for people planning weddings. It’s your wedding. Do what you want, what makes you happy. Traditions are great, but you can change anything you want, especially if it means including relatives and friends in ways that make them feel special and help you connect. The grandmothers in this article will be talking about this wedding for a long time.

One Tennessee couple decided to make all four of their grandmothers their flower girls for their wedding.

CageZilla 59 - PaulLoveKing

Images from Cagezilla 59 at Silver Eagle Group in Ashburn VA are now up on my website. It was a great night of action, starting with a Muay Thai fight and ending bloody. A very enthusiastic crowd, again.

As always you can order prints, mugs, and files with no watermark directly from my website. This was a great night of action with some fantastic battles, and I got some dramatic images.

For the fighters, getting a printed copy to put up at work is a great way to impress the co-workers. Also good for attracting interest in future bouts. Gym owners, these shots are how you impress new customers. And friends and family members need the reminder of why you are at the gym so much.

Great discussion of Saturday nights fights. It was some fantastic Muay Thai action. You can see all my images from the event at https://www.trickthelight.com/Sports/MMA-MixedMartialArts/OO-Fights/TCB-21/

I put an image from that Iron Woman fight as the cover for this event. The intensity of that fight was off the chart, both women deserve recognition for that fight. It really lit up the room, got the crowd into it. And I do want to mention the crowd, the room was full, packed, and it was the loudest audience I have heard at an amateur fight night so far.

I will be following up with everyone and have proposals for CageZilla 59 and TCB-21 no later than Sunday.

The perfect accessory takes the outfit to the next level! I love photographing parties!

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!
