My Passion & My Work

Hey there and welcome to the Blueye Photography blog. My name is Troy and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer located in Austin Texas. I love making photos that are real... real moments, real smiles, real love. I'm not sure that I can put my photography style into a single category, but you can be sure that I'm looking for the best light and the most creative angles I can.

In my blog you'll find everything from sneak peeks of client sessions to personal information. My life is (almost) an open book and I like to share as much as I can. Most entries will include photos... this is a photographers blog after all. I also love feedback about my photography/posts/website/life so please comment as much as you like. I read them all and try to respond to each and every one.

After you've read through some posts and gotten to know a bit about me feel free to check out my portfolio site using the portfolio link above. The blog is updated more frequently than my site, but you won't want to miss checking out my portfolio either.

Thanks for stopping by.

Zack Arias: Transform

Nearly every day I find new (to me) photographers who are truly gifted. This world is full of amazing talent. Zack Arias was asked to guest blog on Scott Kelby’s blog and instead of writing a post he created a video using his Flip Mino HD. This video is quite inspiring and I wanted to share it here.

Hello beautiful

I received my new Canon 5D mk II this afternoon and I think I’m in love :)
(the above photo was shot with my 1dMkIII)

I’ve only shot a few frames with the 5D (it was a busy day), but the ISO performance is phenomenal. The two photos below were shot at ISO 1600 and are pretty much straight out of the camera (I adjusted the white balance in Lightroom). Wow!



And the most impressive thing about this new camera? HD video! Check out this quick little movie I shot with the 85 f/1.2 @ ISO 1600. I converted the video to black and white, added transitions, and added the music in Apple’s iMovie.
