Exercise in attitude

ImageImageThis was a fun shoot as our model looked absolutely nothing like Sophia Loren. She was short, thin, and had stick straight hair. With hair, makeup, a little lesson in all things Sophia, we think she did a pretty good job of bringing the right amount of attitude to the shoot. Couple that with a little throwback in terms of lighting and lenses and voila…a nod to a bygone era in Hollywood.

In the Spotlight

A sample of a shot for a dancer’s portfolio. I love doing photo shoots like this as it gives a real opportunity for models to showcase their individuality and me a chance to capture it.

FINDING LIGHT

FINDING LIGHT

It seems these days everyone with a camera calls themselves a photographer. The mark of the professional is the understanding and use of light. Highlighting and shading a subject can drastically alter the mood of a photograph. Understanding light and how to manipulate it is an art form that a photographer will work on and play with their entire career. Working with light keeps it interesting for me and it truly makes all the difference in a final photo.

Spring Forward!

Dancing in the Rough

This was a fun project capturing beauty in motion. I enjoy playing with opposites in a composition of a photograph. The grace and beauty coupled with the muck and the mire of the sewer outlets. Life is much that way and we should always seek out beauty because it is everywhere if you look and want it to be.ImageImageImagee

Pilot Season Swagger

Pilot Season Swagger

So even though FOX says it isn’t, there certainly is a lot going on! It many circles it’s still officially pilot season this time of year. Do your research, go in prepared, and have GREAT photos! Your reps can only pitch what you give them so make sure they have the variety and the quality they need!!! Capture personality, not poses.

Black and White VS Color

It is an interesting thing…how the mood of a photograph can change based on the saturation or absence of color. I took this photo on a hike. It was a great day and a great many emotions passed through me over the duration of the expedition. When looking over my photos, I went back and forth as to how I wanted to remember the day. The colors were vivid yet there is a simple solace that comes out in the black and white version. I digress… when looking at photography, be it for portraits, head shots, fashion, or environmental, make the choice of color or black and white based on the emotion you wish to convey. After all, a picture, as they say, is worth a thousand words.
