A few thoughts on radio slaves

I’m still using the Yongnuo RF-602 radio slaves that I purchased back in mid-2011.  I was still shooting with Canon gear then, so the 602s have survived not only 4 years of service, but also the transition to m4:3, and all without so much as a hiccup.  I depend on them and they’ve never let […]


Saturday Light – portraits with color gels

In this edition of Saturday Light, we’re going to take a look at making studio portraits that are a bit different from the norm, utilizing colored gels to inject some color into the process.  This is a technique that I’ve been intrigued with for some time now, and which I’ve appreciated in the work of […]


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!

Fresh from the farm(ers market)

Been working on some food photography over the past few weeks, off and on, as I’ve come home with goods from the farmer’s market. We go down every Saturday morning to pick up our CSA share – that’s Community Supported Agriculture, for those of you not familiar with it. We have a share in a […]


Saturday Light: TLCPoV Promo

Stepping away from the natural world for a moment to look at something completely different, sort of a ninety-degree turn from the shooting I’ve been doing in the past month or two.  For this edition of Saturday Light, I’ve got the promo images for TLCPoV, which is shorthand for “The Last Cocktail Party of Venus,” […]


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 […]


Saturday Light: Pride & Prejudice Promo Shoot

This one is long overdue.  Several weeks ago I shared a bit of behind-the-scenes look on what goes into preparing for a photo shoot – in this case, a very large shoot. Writing post-shoot now, I can easily say that it was indeed the biggest production shoot I’ve ever done. And it was outright awesome! […]


Saturday Light – Sara and Tony

Alright, time for another edition of Saturday Light! Although I should warn you now that if you’re looking for some kind of big production with lots of lights, you’ll be disappointed. In keeping with my trend these past few months, this is another really simple session. (I actually debated whether I’d even share it or […]


New toys…er, tools

UPS dropped off cool stuff on Friday – a new Fotodiox 312AS LED light panel and a copy of Kirk Tuck’s “LED Lighting: Professional Techniques for Digital Photographers.” Because A) the price of the LED panel kit is very, very affordable and B) what good is a how-to book if you don’t have the tools […]


Saturday Light: Conor’s headshots

Keeping things simple on another round of Saturday Light. This is Conor, the co-owner of The Vintage in downtown Scranton. But more than being a local entrepreneur and a huge supporter of the local art scene, Conor is himself an actor. So when he needed new headshots to share with the casting folks, he asked […]
