The Roving Photographer


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 […]

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 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! […]

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 – […]

Feeder birds, and how a simple idea can become much more complex

I spent a morning last week up at Paul’s place for some morning feeder bird action.  Paul’s got three feeders and a bird bath setup in near his outdoor porch on the side yard and has really created a perfect little bird paradise.  Not only can they come in and feed & get a drink, […]

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 […]

Simple Clicks: Food Photos

Been playing with some food photography setups lately, in a very informal, experimental way. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to work with and I greatly admire the folks who do it professionally. There’s a real talent to making something look so appetizing that people can’t resist it, and I think that although it would […]

Tethered Shooting

Like so many of my photographic explorations, my foray into tethered shooting probably lacks scientific methodology or testing. I pretty much jumped into it just because an opportunity arose and, since it was working, stuck with it long enough to figure out some pros and cons. I referenced this in a post a little while […]

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 […]
