    This is mainly a test to verify my blog feed is working but while we’re here, check out this fresh Tees I made yesterday and this sick illustration my artist Brandon did. Cool, right? Keep checking here for mediocre normal guy stuff that I think of posting. Or don’t, totally up to you.

    I want to show you something that has me more excited than Nikons new action cam (well, maybe not that excited but pretty close).  Introducing something new to me and hopefully new to you: Chatbooks   @chatbooks

    image

    Chatbooks is an amazing app that prints photo books and automatically sends them to your door for $8 a book once you’ve reached 60 photos!  Not only does it pull from the predetermined source that you tell it to, it also prints the geo-tag info and date and time on the same page as the photo for you!  If that wasn’t enough you can also add captions to each page.  However, if you don’t want that printed with your pictures, then don’t!  Oh, did I mention you can make them hardcover for only $5 more?  I decided to write this blog about this company because my wife makes fun of me for telling, literally, everyone I’ve seen since my son was born.  You can probably tell by my poor writing skills and misuse of commas, , , that i’m not endorsed by them or sponsored in any way.  I truly just love sharing awesome companies to others and hope you give it a shot!  I can’t wait to get my next book, because when you have this many photos on your iPhone, its time to give up organization and just go ahead and have them printed.

    Be awesome and at least get a book for free (shipping included, no .99 charge blah, blah, blah)

    Use this code: UCUL7NHW  and get your first book on me when you sign up at www.chatbooks.com (I get $1 credit each time someone gets their free book and I could use it seeing as how I just had my first child and their will be a lot of pictures!)

    January 18, 2016 at 1539 hours my life changed in an unimaginable yet exciting way.  Me and my wife welcomed our first child, Asher David Isaacs, into this world.  I’ve never understood why people post pictures of their children all over social network in an overwhelming fashion until now.  I can’t stand it!  I love this little guy.  It’s been 5 days since he’s joined us and I miss him even when going to the store. Why not stay at home with him instead of going to the store, you ask? To buy more energy drinks to get me through the night ahead, Duh!  As I continue to evolve as a phlogger (Photographer/Blogger… You got it but I’m just making sure) I plan on keeping you updated on this little man and our adventures as a family.  Asher will drive me that much more in pursuing my dreams of being a full time professional photographer.  Because, when I’m doing photography full time and ditch the 9-5, we can go on adventures and see the world.  Here’s to dreaming big and having the best little family anyone could ask for.

    Here’s a snapshot from a while back of my gorgeous pregnant wife. #2016 is a whole new adventure as we welcome @asher.isaacs into the world and start our little family. I love them both more than an Instagram post can describe. Happy New Year everyone.

    I got crafty and created this using a wood burner for my soon-to-be born son’s nursery. I bought the wood from Hobby Lobby then I took a reversed picture of the content I wanted to be on the wood and used the wood burner to transfer the image (via heat) onto the wood. Once I had the rough image copied on the wood I, again, used the wood burner to “trace” it, burning the wood and creaking this awesome little nursery decoration! What do you think?

    Here’s an unedited shot from the @arcadiangrooming shoot I did last week. I used one single Alien Bee B800 over the camera and bounced the light off of a white umbrella. I’m happy with the results, especially since it hasn’t seen post production yet. @paulcbuffinc (at Taylor Isaacs Photography)

    So I’ve decided to work on a personal project over the nect month or so until my son is born. It’s going to be called Project Black. I’ll post updates as it moves along to keep you in the loop and once it’s done I’ll publish it to my website. If you’re interested in being featured in this project let me know!

    Here’s another shot from the @arcadiangrooming shoot. More to come. Sorry I’m slacking on posts lately. I’ve been super busy and keeping up is getting harder. But that’s good though! ;)

    Most photographers remember the struggle, when starting out. You had to make do with what you had until that bank account caught up with the budget that photography calls for. The first picture is a behind the scenes shot of a recent product shoot I did for an awesome beard product line, Arcadian Grooming. I’m using a Nikon d700, Nikon 50mm f/1.8 and a Paul C. Buff Alien Bee 800 paired with a Nikon sb800 outfitted with a flash diffuser (soft box). The reflector was necessary to eliminate such a harsh light drop off. My buddy Eric isn’t necessary but was a huge help in keeping the reflector where I needed it. :). The second shot is an unedited, straight from the camera shot, that is still in post production. I never said I was great at writing but there is a sample of what’s in store. Hope you’ve enjoyed my first behind the scenes snapshot and come back around for my (hopefully improving) blogging skills. Stay awesome.

    Stoked @ericmdale of @arcadiangrooming allowed me to photograph his hellacious beard in the studio!

    Here’s a sample of what I’ve been working on lately. I’ve been doing a whole lot of photography soul searching to find my creative niche and keep coming back to something along these lines. Thanks to @clintc2122 for asking to look like a coal miner.

    My wife thinks I have a complex. I disagree. I just thoroughly enjoy pictures that come out perfectly exposed that require very, I mean VERY, little editing. With that being said, here are some pictures that me and my talented friend Brandon Daniel (brandondanielart.com) came up with this past week. Enjoy and I’ll blog to you soon. -Taylor

    While I fight to perfect my website (which I’m sure will never happen) I had to share this fun image I captured earlier this week!  Who doesn’t appreciate dog pictures? Right?

    Glad Google figured out who I was!  I’m one step closer to making this my full time job! I can not wait!
