Saturday Light – Lady of the Lake

So it’s a rainy, gloomy Saturday morning, a balmy 48* outside, what do you do to pass the time? Well, if you’re me, you convince your friends to meet you at the county park, where you proceed to do a photo shoot in the pond!

Saturday Light: Pride & Prejudice Headshots

Did headshots for the cast of The Vintage’s production of “Pride & Prejudice” over two evenings last week. Simple, clean headshots – nothing fancy here, just working to capture a good portrait of each actor for use in the show’s program. The whole thing was designed to be pretty low key. The crew is rehearsing […]


Masquerade Promo Pre-shoot

Tomorrow night I’m shooting some promo shots for my friends at The Vintage. You won’t see this post until Thursday, at which point the shoot will already be over. But I still wanted to put my thoughts down on paper, as it were, regarding the creative process and pre-visualization that I’m doing as I get […]


In The Backyard: My Little Chickadee

Chickadees have to be the easiest birds to photograph. As Brent is fond of saying, they’ll fly right up your lens. Something else they’ll do is get fearlessly close in either natural or not-so-natural settings. Here is an example; we have numerous chickadees in our backyard, usually jockeying for position at our feeders. I recently […]


Saturday Light: Sara in the summer

You’ve seen some of these photos before, in Tuesday’s OM-D portraiture review. But I wanted to go back and share a few more images from the session as well as pick up the Saturday Light series. It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these, because it’s been a while since I’ve had a […]


Olympus OM-D E-M5 Review: Studio Work (static)

Although the majority of my personal work takes place outdoors, my professional ventures are split about 70/30, with the smaller portion taking place in an indoor studio setting, be it with models, products, stock, etc. Although I’m really dying to get a model in front of the E-M5, I’m taking this one step at a […]


Olympus OM-D E-M5 Review: General Shooting

This is probably the toughest of the reviews to write, just because I want to cover a number of different points. You can probably think of this one as a catch-all, the place for anything that doesn’t exactly fit with the other, more specific posts that are coming (I’ve been writing them out of sequence). […]


Nikon Ups Flash Offering – Where’s Canon?

Word is out about Nikon’s newest Speedlight, the SB-910, which is an incremental upgrade to their already popular SB-900 that apparently addresses a few issues and implements an interface upgrade. It’s no secret that Nikon has been leading the hotshoe flash market for years, their Speedlights offering performance and features that Canon’s own Speedlite line […]


Simple Clicks – Glamour Light

Just a trial run for an idea I’ve been hoping to develop better. I’ve seen other photogs use this style of lighting with kick ass results and have been dying to try it myself. I was able to grab a few shots with Lauren on Saturday, which convinced me that it’s worth developing, even if […]


Review – Yongnuo RF-602 Radio Slaves

The Yongnuo RF-602s have been in my bag for several months now, which has given me plenty of time to work with them. For those of you who like quick reviews, here’s the summation: they work really, really well and have solved the problems I had with my previous set. For those of you who […]
