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,” […]

Prepping for a big shoot

I’m in the process of preparing for what may be my biggest photo shoot to date. It’s exciting – and a little scary. There’s a lot of behind the scenes work that goes into into a shoot, well before the camera even comes out of the bag. So as I’m putting pieces together, I thought […]

News from the other site

Just wanted to share a couple of posts from my other website, Brent Pennington: Photographer.  Click the image above to read the posts: the first is a postcard that the PA Parks & Forests Foundation made for the holidays from my winning entry in their photo contest.  The second is “The Moth Project” at The […]

Misc inspiration from the Net

I’ve once again spent (wasted) enough time surfing the internet to have come across some items of actual value amid the rest of the crap that’s out there. This is the stuff I feel is really worth sharing, so here’s hoping you enjoy it as much as I have. (And as usual, the random photo […]

Masquerade Ball promos complete

Photos from my Masquerade Ball Promo shoot are up on my other site: Masquerade Ball @ The Vintage | Brent Pennington: Photographer.  Thankfully they came out similar to my pre-visualization, and much better than the terrible sketch I’d made.  Although I attribute that mainly to the models – Kelly and the two Joes – who […]

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 […]

NEPA BlogCon

Today is NEPA BlogCon! I’m providing photo coverage all morning and into the early afternoon, then sitting on the panel for “Using Media Effectively” later in the day. It’s sure to be a good time, and certainly a full-on geek-out session. I’ll be sharing photos on my other site sometime later in the week. We’ll […]

Coming up next

The next six weeks are going to be pretty darn busy from a photographic standpoint. What’s on deck? Well… a professional portrait session, a 45th wedding anniversary session, an engagement session (in Philly, even!), event coverage in NY, street shooting at La Festa, another country fair, and to top it all off, coverage of NEPA […]

How I almost skunked myself (and technology saved me)

It’s too damn hot, even for photography, and has been for the past week.  A real heat wave that’s reduced most of us to hanging around the A/C at work or sweating into little puddles.  Even the string of (big!) thunderstorms that moved through this afternoon didn’t do anything to knock the heat down – […]

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 […]
