Bounce and Falloff

Playing around with some continuous lighting in a small confined space.  Large parabolic umbrella with two lights shooting through it.  I'm tucked in to about a three foot space with a white reflector on my left ~ light set up is on my right.  So there was a whole lot of light bouncing around during this session…..with some unintentional falloff

My rigging was done in quick fashion ~ therefore the "falloff" was also in quick fashion!
Had to laugh though.  As soon as the next shot was firing I was trying to get my act back together.

A enjoyed a few laughs along with a little knowledge gained ~ can't take yourself too seriously ~
I chalk it up to a good day!

A Day In The Field

As an editorial photographer I find myself always in observation mode - looking for something to happen that tells a story.

While at the same time consciously trying to make a photograph that is uniquely my own.

When I first saw Olivia I was drawn to the light catching her in a beautiful way.  But as she walked along with apples in hand I was given a gift.

….and in the words of Jay Maisel you hear the voice in your head saying "don't screw this up"  (modified the language on this quote) If you've ever talked with Jay you'll know what I'm sayin'

We've all been given gifts ~ don't screw them up!

 Infrared Photography

A different view of the world -
shifting from what is comfortable
to a place of exploration.

Looking forward to charting
some new territory.

Shot in the Arm

Fabulous to see downtown Laconia abuzz this afternoon during the New Hampshire Coffee Festival.
It was wonderful to see the streets jam packed with visitors and vendors offering a wide array
of local products.

I enjoyed energizing conversation with old and new friends ~ truly a great shot in the arm.

Something Extra

Every once in a while something comes into view that you didn't see at the time it was happening.

As was the case with this dragonfly….  a meaningful addition to the photo.



It Is What It Is

It's funny when I think about what catches my eye and holds my interest.  
This is my coffee stop while in Maine.

I was drawn in by the fact that they weren't what they were labeled to be and found amusement in it.
This can be explained by the fact that it was my "early" morning coffee stop -
we are talking sunrise early here

So this summer when I went into town for my coffee by the water I was taken once again.
But this time humored…

that things were what they were.

A Thirsty Garden

I was out taking pictures of my herb garden a while back.  I don't have much of a green thumb but I seem to do okay with herbs.  Had to laugh when I looked through my series recently and saw a picture of my cocktail in the mix.

I suppose I should rename this post as
