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 – the harpist at Trostle

Only a week after my cold morning visit to Trostle Pond, I was back on a Thursday evening for a portrait session with Chelsea, the lovely harpist I met during The Vintage’s “24 Hours of Art” event this past summer.  I did a series of portraits of artists participating at the event, and had mentioned […]

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: 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: 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: Portraiture

Alright, so after an embarassing couple of weeks filled with delays, we’re back on track to finally finish up this never-ending review series! So let’s talk portraiture. I saved this one until last for a few reasons, logistics being one of them. But also because portraiture has become one of my favorite kinds of photography […]

Working with models: the booking process, Part 2

We’re back!  In Part 1, we worked through the booking process right up to having a plan.  You could almost have called that the “pre-booking process,” since we were just up to the point of actually finding  the model herself (or himself).  So here goes: Having a plan actually plays very well into the next […]

Working with models: the booking process, Part 1

As I was putting the finishing touches on my plans for a portrait shoot this past weekend, I thought it might be helpful to some of you if I broke down the process and walked through my own methodology. Booking a model doesn’t have to be complicated; in some cases it’s as easy as asking […]

Saturday Light: Alli

This was a shoot I had been looking forward to for a long time, but conflicting schedules kept getting in the way, until finally we were able to pull it off. Alli is a dear friend of Mandy and I, who is giving serious thought to trying her hand at modeling. She’s got the look […]

Inspiration File

I am an inveterate net surfer when it comes to photography. Blogs, news feeds, forums, Flickr, magazines – they’re all fair game, so long as the photos are interesting. On one level I suppose it’s just entertainment, but on another it’s a way to keep a finger on the pulse of the industry, and perhaps […]
