Gosh, it’s been ten years since Seng Merrill loaned me her Sigma SD14 and a couple of lenses. I’d like to thank her for the faith in a young artist/photographer, and of course thank her late husband Dick Merrill for being one of the architects of the unique Foveon sensor design. I’ve had great fun […]
Hi there everyone! Apparently there’s this new thing called Instagram. 😉 Thanks to @lawrsonpinson for organizing and hosting. Thanks to models/bubble tea/dance partners Chalita – @4ever_819 and Rachel – @rachelmarchman for the invite, and also breaking character and having fun photos as usual. Also thanks to Brittany – @justbeburke, I really liked the images we […]
Festival de Dia de Muertos 27 de Octubre de 2019Atlanta History Center What a lovely and vibrant culture on display at the Atlanta History Center! Here are the pictures I got before I had to run off to another event. Feel free to download and share. Thanks to all the cute little ones for posing!! […]
Duluth Fall Festival | (Always the Last weekend in September!) | September 28, 2019 It has been a long hot summer down here in Georgia, and pretty much everywhere else too it seems. Let’s hope the cool temperatures predicted for next week finally usher in Autumn, perhaps my most favorite season. For this Saturday evening […]
Halloween Shoot in Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta, GA | Model: Krista
Some portraits from a brief visit on Sunday. Thanks to everyone for posing!
Notes: Running out of ideas to shoot at the increasingly more crowded car show this month, so dusted off the infrared Sigma. Black and white conversions with a Nikon Red filter as usual. While it is fun to see the expensive and exotic machinery, I think it’s better as a social commentary about the relative […]
Portraits from this year’s great event. Most of the images with my “alternative” gear!
Going through some old photos, figuring out what to do. These are images from when I would stroll through New Orleans with an IR Sigma.
Fun Shootout in Atlanta’s Historic Oakland Cemetery, a place more like a flower and sculpture garden.
Notes: Used the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center on many occasions, but always good to revisit with a different angle. One of my goals is to record places for future reference, either for model shoots, or spots that might have cinematic or storytelling appeal. Plus it gives me a chance to do purely composition based […]
Notes: Helped out a friend on a pre wedding test shoot at Sacred Heart Cultural Center in Augusta. Place was massive and definitely a visual and architectural delight. In going through images to post, I normally cull the ones that fit the theme that I was trying to go for. For this one, the natural […]
Notes: Can’t recall ever using IR on the waterfalls so I thought I would give it a shot, mixed in with some fake Samurai Showdown action. Kids, don’t try this at home, the rocks are slippery, and boy was it cold in that water. The wide angle forced perspective also makes the falls look tiny, […]
Momocon in Infrared Notes: Photos from this year’s MomoCon. Only went on Saturday, but it was fun. Great weather and city atmosphere, but it was somewhat chaotic and the long lines kept us from going anywhere. So it was more like a really long extended lunch in high school where the kids are free to run […]
Notes: It snowed in the ATL on Christmas, so of course I had to step outside. Thanks to KT for putting up with the bitter cold just so I could shoot and then write about it. If you guys have been following for the last several posts I’ve pretty much been trying to give a […]
Notes: Didn’t get to shoot much of the parade in IR due to me forgetting to charge the battery…but what I did get sure was creepy looking… 😈
Park Tavern / Piedmont Room | Atlanta, GA
Technical Notes: Actually a mixture of modeling light photos with the Canon and strobist shots with the Sigma SD14. Normally I shoot Nikon and off camera speedlights via CLS and TTL, but this time Pocket Wizard strobes and manual settings. I prefer the creative variety that shooting CLS gives you, especially outside, like being able to shoot f/2.8 or […]
Tech Notes: 24-105mm IS on the Canon, 70-200 VR on the Nikon, and infrared Sigma. Great combo. Maybe since I’ve been playing Final Fantasy XIII so much, with its 3 person fighting structure, figuring out tools for the bag is like setting up your characters for a battle. Cars and cameras are similar and oddly enough cameras are […]
Notes: Forgot how much I like the 70-200mm f/2.8 for portraits. Used a good bit of everything in the arsenal for all these, and wouldn’t you know it, didn’t even touch the 85mm f/1.4. Pix below from the Foveon Sigma. If only the files look like that out of the camera. There is hope though, […]
Notes: …was ridiculously cold and sleeting during the shoot, thanks for being a trooper!
Random Notes: …that was a relatively long drive…photos somewhat mimic the plot in a horror movie, pass by the quaint small town, come across the looming power plant and fade into the infrared shots at a covered bridge, a la Tales from the Darkside. One of the images also suffers from file corruption (a fitting transition into the […]
