Orchids in the Studio

Today I’m going to join the ranks of millions on Flickr and bore to you tears with flower shots. Actually, I really hope that I don’t bore you. But I am still going to share them with you. Orchids are amazingly beautiful and I’ve always wanted one, but had heard that they are difficult to […]


Saturday Light: In the Woods

Stepping back to Vermont during the holidays (the same day that I shot the sunrise photos in the freezing cold) the afternoon temperature reached a balmy 23* and I headed to the woods with my brother, Nick.  The goal: to make some portraits that were all about him. Nick is like most people when it […]


Saturday Light: Lauren

Back from my short hiatus while working on my other site [link], here’s another edition of Saturday Light with Lauren, who has become a familiar face here over the course of her three-part senior session. It was really supposed to be a two-part session, but due to some scheduling troubles and a bit of miscommunication, […]


Saturday Light: Gianna

Now for something completely different: Gianna, my first foray into the world of children’s photography. This was a shoot done for Gianna’s mom, who is a friend of mine, and wanted some photos to include in the annual Christmas card. We kicked around a few ideas and settled on a two-part shoot, starting with some […]


The Dreaded, Infamous Couples Portrait Returns

Last December I blogged about my experiences with the Dreaded, Infamous Couples Self-Portrait. I blame it all on Mandy, who was insistent that I take an up-to-date couples photo of us. Something about how there hadn’t been a good one since, well, ever. It took three separate attempts, three complete setups and tear downs of […]


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 […]


New Gear – Apollo Orb Octobox

I got an octobox!  I’ve wanted one of these for years; the Apollo Orb was just released and it’s unique design makes it perfect for Speedlites, avoiding two major issues that most other octoboxes face: differing mounting rings and PITA setup. This isn’t a full review – haven’t had it long enough for that.  So […]


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 […]


Saturday Light – Kristen & Lauren

As I mentioned in my last post, I spent most of this past weekend behind a camera. It was great! Whereas I started photography afraid to work with people, I’ve come to love portraiture. Spending a few hours with great subjects and good light and then coming home with kick ass photos is the best […]


Saturday Light – Kristen’s Senior Shoot

Playing catch up here after the wedding, which has put not only my posts, but also most of my editing off by a a couple of weeks. So stepping back in time to early September, this is Kristen’s senior session. And alright, it wasn’t actually a Saturday shoot, but that sounds better than “Thursday Light,” […]
