    Mask, Books and Candle

    Another still life. Unfortunately more of a 'proof of concept' until more appropriately aged books appear in the mail and I acquire a better candle holder. The idea behind the composition was to following, with the elements of the photo, the pattern of the light, from the top left to the lower...

    National Geographic Redwood Tree

    A short video in which they describe the process of setting up and taking a picture of a redwood tree. I ran across this in the National Geographic box set bonus disc and found it online. Kinda makes me wonder if I've got the devotion to a single shot to 'make it' as a photographer :) National...

    Shot with a single light with a snoot (and a spraybottle). I'm fond of the one petal going it's own direction, but that might just be personal preference. Thanks for looking.

    Odd image sales

    I was approached (and subsequently sold) some rights to an image. I didn't even think it was a particularly good image, but it somehow filled the bill for a company that tests high-end photocopiers. They're going to use it as a test image. It won't be used as marketing material or distributed...

    My first child portrait (er sorta) client (8 pics)

    I hadn't intended on doing kids at all but this opportunity came up. The client (mom) wanted to do the session in their house and some posed but mostly following the little one around and getting candid shots while he played. Of the 30 proofs I showed, they ordered at least two of each and some...

    Never underestimate the tranquilizing power of a cuddly cat

    My daughter is trying desperately to give up naps. Not so, today, when the cat curled up, out she went. Naturally, I grabbed the camera. I can't figure out whether there's just too much going on or if the tones are just too flat, but this one fell out of my 'ooh' file and into my 'keep for...

    Positively Alien

    If I were smart, I'd have written down the name of this plant but I didn't and a I took a nap today so it's pretty much gone now. Anyway, I saw this in the flower shop and had to have it. It was just Positively Alien.

    But I wanna go outside...

    Inspired by bpetruzzo in his thread,, I took a crack at processing an image very similarly. I would be a fool to think I came anywhere close to his, but I'm pleased enough with...
