William’s Bar Mitzvah + Suzan’s BDay + Happy New Year

5 01 2010


What just happened?  I feel like I just came out of a snowy time-warp.  The days between the 21st of December and right now have all been a snowy blur full of family, friends, beers, and video games, all landing me here Terminator-Style (only WITH clothes) in the magical year of 2010.  Now I just need to find that little brat John Connor.

Ok, nerdout aside, welcome back from a long winter’s break everyone.  I (Ryan) spent the week at home in Minnesota, holed up during a nonstop blizzard.  Michelle was back in Kentucky hanging out with her awesome friends and her awesome dog.  It was a great break, but its nice to be back on the grind, or the hustle, or whatever it is the kids are saying these days….

That being said, time for some photos.  Right before we left we shot William’s Bar Mitzvah, and our good friend Susan’s (Susan can we call you that yet?  Or are we jumping the “friend” gun?) Birthday party in the SAME NIGHT.  Both parties were a blast, here are some highlights.  Check out the rest on the MRI Flickr and stay tuned for more!!!

That’s all for now, but stay tuned for more.  Coming up we have a few random things we think you’ll like, and of course in February or annual MRI print sale.  That should be sweet.  Have a fantastic 2010!

BONUS:  I got to hang out with my good friend Oceans In Space (musical MADMAN), we shot and edited this ridiculously crazy lil video featuring the MRI 5 Finger Light Glove!

Sam’s Bar Mitzvah Photos are UP!

11 12 2009

Last weekend we spent our Saturday night partying with our new friend Sam at his Bar Mitzvah.  The event was held at The Mansion on O Street in DC.  Look the place up, there really is no other way to describe it other than “hotel meets thrift store meets rock and roll hall of fame meets acid trip.”  It has secret passageways and signed (Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Julian Lennon) guitars in every room.

Anyway, the party went off without a hitch, and we got plenty of great shots, and our NEW on-site printing was a big hit.  Check out the whole set on the MRI Flickr, and check out some highlights below.

Tomorrow night we’re booked for another Bar Mitzvah and a private party after that…after that, we’ll be working on a music video collaboration with musician/madman Jeff Taylor.  Here’s a little sample, stay tuned for the (awesome) finished product:

The Canon Logic – “Delia”

4 12 2009

In my internet travels, I randomly came across this video of our friends in The Canon Logic doing their song “Delia” across the Brooklyn Bridge, and I loved it…reminded me of those awesome “Take Away Shows”.

Speaking of the Take Away Shows, this one is an MRI favorite…

Not necessarily lightpainting related, but we love The Canon Logic so….yup.

Happy Thanksgiving!

25 11 2009

Just wanted to wish everyone a very happy (and bright) thanksgiving.  And a huge thanks to everyone who has been supporting us.  We won’t let you all down.  Stay tuned after the break for some CRAZY new stuff.

Ha!  Check out this awesome video that Team Lumiere (see below) put together from our photo shoot.  Its got us talking about our process (only slightly less awkward than the NPR piece) and then shooting some of the pictures we ended up with that night.  Enjoy!
