Here is my first official photo taken with my Alien Bees lights. I’m still waiting on the rest of my studio gear to arrive in the mail … after that I should be able to start taking people photos. :)

Last night was the Navy Ball, celebrating the Navy’s 231st birthday. It was okay … it seemed to be lacking in a lot of the typical traditional ceremonies that you usually see at those events, which was disappointing. I got all dressed up in my dinner dress uniform, and Andrew wore his tux. I even got to meet the MCPON, who is the most senior ranking enlisted member in the Navy — that was pretty cool, he even gave me a coin! I have a bunch of photos of last night and I’ll be posting those a little bit later in the week.
