Happy 9th Birthday Madeline !
9 years old and counting. Father time is ticking until your Confirmation, then your Driver's Permit and then your High School Graduation. On top of all the family events in between milestones. The petabytes of future photos and videos are staggering to imagine. Hopefully by then, they will have a 1 gigabyte Apple iPad 10 available at a premium price. Of course, replaced with a better upgrade 6 months later.
From newborn photos shot with the 35mm film Canon EOS 3 camera 9 years ago, SLR technology has changed dramatically with the times. Hauling separate still and video cameras in the past are now replaced with hybrid HD DSLR's that can achieve both with stunning Full HD quality. My daughter can only look forward to smaller, faster, better and cheaper imaging technology in the near future. Anyone interested in a mint 35mm film camera with battery booster?
A summer birthday welcomes a celebration with extended family at a local swimming hole. Local meaning Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando, Florida. Luckily, a housekeeping fiasco kept each room a long and comfortable distance from each other. Thank you very much kind random acts of fate!
From Holy Water to swimming pool water, my newly Baptized baby daughter has grown accustomed to her sea legs. Just like her big sister, newborn Serena loves Hello Kitty!
Call of Duty Black Ops has trained my son well in the art of water warfare. The NERF Super Soaker is like an extension of his arm unleashing aquatic surgical strikes against older annoying sisters on their birthday including innocent bystanders.
You can view more in my Happy 9th Birthday Madeline Gallery shot with the Canon EOS 1D Mark IV paired with the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS and EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II lenses.
This is a 1080p video shot with the Canon EOS 1D Mark IV paired with the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS and EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II lenses. Edited with Final Cut Pro 6.0.6 and used Compressor to get a 422mb H264 video file at best quality. I used the Canon E-1 Movie plugin to transcode the h264 movie clips to AppleProRes422. For audio, I used the budget priced AZDEN ECZ-990 Supercardioid Shotgun Microphone.
