Sometimes in life you think you have it all planned out...then suddenly nothing goes as planned. So what do you do? You give up? Do you put your tail in between your legs and go home?

That is just not what lightenupandshoot is all about!

So what did we do? Find out after the break...

Lighten Up and Snoot : The Envigado Shoot, Bar La Sierra


Alright people it's time to learn a thing or two. So Mikey and I head out to what we think is the coolest bar in all of Envigado, La Sierra which is owned by our good friend Carlos Mario. It's a tiny and I mean tiny bar with some of the coolest atmosphere you can ever imagine. It is true what they say, good things come in small packages.

We went out with Gaby as our model and we wanted to play with a snoot technique we wanted to share with you. We love snoots! Unbelievable creativity in something so simple!

More info, photos, and brand spankin new Lightroom Presets after the break

6 Months of Lightenupandshoot!!


A quick video to show what lightenupandshoot has done in the past 6 months. We love this rollercoaster we're on, and we hope it never ends!!

Thank you for being part of it!! Share it with everyone!! Lightenupandshoot.com is not about Andy and Mikey, it's about a photographic lifestyle!! It's about living life and capturing moments that would normally slip away!! It's about feeling like you've changed someone's life with a quick press of the shutter button!! It's about being you!! Not what some camera company wants you to be!!

Thanks again!! And stay tuned for more!!

Andy and Mikey
