Lagoon Side in Placencia, Romantic, and Quiet https://www.esotericvision.com/blog/2017/5/lagoon-side-in-placencia-romantic-and-quiet Lagoon Side Living in Placencia, Belize Here's a peak at a new community going up here on the Placencia Peninsula. I think these units over the wetlands are fantastic inside and out!

Grand Caribe From Above https://www.esotericvision.com/blog/2017/5/grand-caribe-from-above Grand Caribe Resort, 2.5 Miles North, San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, BelizeGrand Caribe Penthouse ViewGrand Caribe Resort, 2.5 Miles North, San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, Belize

Here's a capture from a top floor penthouse in Grand Caribe from a couple of weeks ago. I took this same shot many years ago before I stopped shooting for awhile. It's meant to be a signature shot and one that I've always wanted another stab at it. So here's the updated version. The image is a stitch of several  HDR images and the field of view covers about 160° on this one.

This version is obviously not from above. However it's another stitch of several images that are all long term exposures. I tend to rotate through a few techniques depending on what I want in the end. The images was done in 2010 I think. It's been awhile but still one of my favorites. I just thought it would be a good comparison of for the same property.

Sunset at Belize Ocean Club https://www.esotericvision.com/blog/2017/5/sunset-at-belize-ocean-club-2017 Sunset wedding photography session on the lagoon side of Belize Ocean ClubCasual and SimpleUrsula and Mark enjoying the moment during the formal portraiture session.

Well, I've been working diligently on my wedding photography and getting the formals sessions up to snuff. Here's Ursula and Mark during their portraiture session last week. I love shooting weddings, especially the smaller beach weddings. I like to lead to good light and let the session unfold naturally as possible. My style is definitely casual and photojournalistic in nature. You'll find a little artistic touch for sessions like this. If you're getting married in Belize give me a shout.

Here's a shot with the couple lit gently from the back with a flash to bring out some detail.  This first shot was lit with a flash as well.
