Relaxing a bit tonight before the hecticness begins...

I hardly ever use my 50mm (f1.8)lens-- turns out prime just isn't my thing, but adding a Canon 250D close up lens to it might make me sing a different tune. Turns out that it makes a fabulous macro lens-- of all the lenses I have macro attachments for, this one wins by a long shot!

Hanauma Bay, Ohau
Originally uploaded by Jan Herbert
I wasn't very good with the camera in the ocean. I had a hard time trying to point it while being blown around in the waves. Here's a little clip I took in Hanauma Bay State Park on Ohau, Hawaii. An absolutely gorgeous place to visit & by far the best snorkeling I've found in Hawaii. I think Moorea & Bora Bora spoiled me a bit when it comes to amazing snorkeling. One of these days I'll make it back there.

My latest project that has consumed my time for the past week or so- creating the flyer, programs, & tshirts for "Dancing Through the Decades," the June Showcase for South Bay Dance Center's- a huge year-end recital. Every class from age 3 to infinity performs a song. My two daughters will both be dancing, one in two shows plus making an appearance for a special award as this is her 5th year dancing at the studio (and is only 7 years old to boot)! I'm so proud of both of them! Pictures are sure to appear after all is said & done. :)

I think that's how you say it... This was a holiday that was first introduced to me after moving to California in 1995. While I don't really celebrate the occasion personally, I used it as an excuse to make a margarita on a Tuesday this year!

A not so happy moment, done to Kanye West's "Bad News"
And a "Celebration" to mark the end of the year.

Not my photography, but a project I've been working on & a little plug for the studio... My daughter isn't dancing in these productions (yet), but they asked me to create the flyer to help promote the show. This is what I came up with. The next one I'll be working on is their big June Showcase, which of course will be in June. :)

This turned into quite the session! We ended up hitting 5 locations in 3 hours. Here are a few from Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati:
They even did some ice skating! What a wonderful place for pictures! I hope they want to revisit for the wedding next spring!
The Art Museum in Eden Park was where we started:
And the session ended over in Kentucky with a very romantic backdrop. Congratulations & best wishes Shannon & Louie!

In taking a break, I decided to go through a few of my own shots from the trip. Going to Union Terminal is always a highlight for me as the building is my favorite in the city. I spent quite a bit of time here digging in their archives for a research paper I wrote in college about WWII war bonds in Cincinnati. The building is currently known as the Museum Center where it houses a Children's museum, Cincinnat's Natural History Museum, an OmniMax theater, & special exhibits that come through the area.
The outside of the building is simply gorgeous. I've been told it was built to mimic the shape of a radio, & I think that's a pretty good comparison...
And here are a few shots from the main entrance. Makes you feel like you've taken a step back in time...
The enormous window on the front of the building, from inside:
And a few of the murals that are up depicting the area's history, I captured 2 of them, but they extend back behind the main area as well:

JanHerbert.com is up & running once again & I'm so excited about it! It sat horribly out of date for the past several years & with my new camera comes new inspiration to try & take this photography thing one step further. The site is working, but still in the works, so if it's not compatible with your browser currently, I hope to make it so very soon. Be sure to check back again to see more of my work as I plan to still add stock photography & more Event & Love pictures from a few upcoming sessions I have planned. :)
