Panoramic practice.

This was a quick panoramic stitch I did to practice for the big one. I really like the colors so I tried to clean it up and make it presentable. Unfortunately the major pano is much more difficult. I just HAD to choose to shoot the passage of time. Sigh, maybe someday I'll learn.

Set up for a portrait.

Pretty simple stuff. Just pop a 283 on a light stand and let 'er rip. I really have a hard time seeing the lighting on my subjects. I guess I get caught up interacting with them or watching their expressions. Portraits are certainly much harder than they look.

This was the shot I turned in for the sports portrait assignment in the BioComm Photojournalism class. I walked away with exactly the shot I had in my head when I was setting up the lighting. I would really appreciated ANY feedback that I could get from you, gentle readers. Thank you.

Small format summer portfolio.

This was one of my portfolio shots for the small format class in the summer. A light balancing nightmare beacuse my scene included window light, a household incandescent, some fluorescents, and of course my flash. Yes it is lit. This guy was also in a Subway commercial a little while back from what I understand. The commercial was something like a montage of local points of interest and other features of the area.

The Dancing Hoj.

This is just a fun little diversion that I scraped together from a technical assignment in my portrait class. I just thought it was kind of entertaining and figured I would share it with anyone that bothers to check my blog, all 3 of you. YOU HAVE TO CLICK THE PICTURE TO LOAD THE ANIMATION. It will take a few moments to bring in all the images before it will play. So if you're patient, enjoy.

My setup for the self promo shot.

This is how my self promotional headshot was set up. Pretty simple stuff, one hot light and a chair. Special thanks to Courtney Collins for her help with this assignment.

One of my portfolio shots from small object.

This was one of the first projects for small object lighting and it was one of the few that I felt I got exactly what I wanted on the first try. Very simple lighting setup, just two strobes underneath a piece of white plexiglass. Still one of my favorite shots.

More football fun.

Funny how much easier it is to shoot football when you still have daylight. I was pretty pleased with how this shot came out and I think I am going to try and use it for Bill's little pink houses project. I would appreciate any comments you guys leave.
