Been a long time since I've used G+.  Maybe it's time for a resurgence.  Here's the latest: Souperman!

Hooray for Autumn (and great tech)

Here's a lighting test I shot the other day with the incredible +Phase One P65+.  The expression of the subject pretty much mimics  my expression after using the gear.  Wow.

Power within?  Yeah, I think so!  :-)

"Oh my"

Photo sessions can be a lot of fun, especially when you have subjects who ham it up a bit.  (And if they don't, I usually do.)

Jason Statham's Finally Met His Match

Here's a single from a recent test.  Great guy.  I see him as an action star on the rise.  Maybe "The Expendables III"?  :-)

What do you mean I don't get a cookie?

I was putting together a dramatic back-lit sports shoot when this test opportunity presented itself.  :-)

Me: "Smile for the camera!"
Him: "Do I get a cookie?"
Me: "Uh...no."
Him: "..."

Hey, +Scott Thomas: Yeah, the model wasn't as interested in the shoot as I'd have liked.  I find with children, you have to play the tit-for-tat game (within reason, of course).  Then again, I suppose that's true for everyone, isn't it?  It's always a trade of some kind.  Thanks for the comment!

And thanks, +Naghmeh Khadembashi, but cookies are so good! (Which is why I must avoid them, myself.)

+Bartek Siębab: Thank you, too!  Kids make it all fun and happy.

Trail Run

The funny thing about shooting running shots (or maybe sports shots in general) is that you sometimes do them over and over and over...and over.  This one was no exception.  :-)  I guess that's how it is in the arts, though: Spontaneity must be thought out and planned through.

Am I crazy for enjoying it more because of that?

The Stranger

Oh, how I love low-key lighting.  I'd say something about exposing the darkness of a soul, but A) that's a bit macabre and; B) Halloween's over.

Anyone heading to Fotoworks/PhotoPlus?

Hey, shooters--any of you heading out to NYC at the end of the month?  I'm gonna be there gettin' my portfolio-share on and drooling over cool new kit.  Always looking to say howdy to other photogs.  Anyone interested in meeting?

"Little Kisses", Part Five

I don't have much to say about this one, just that it makes me smile.  This little guy was rowdy, mischievous...and utterly cute.  A lot of these great little moments I barely notice when I'm shooting and it's not until looking at the proofs that I can really appreciate what was happening at the time.  This moment was gone in a blink, just a quick hug before more running and playing.  :-)

Thanks, +Nathan Mark Phillips.  She is, I know, but even if she weren't, I'd be happy just for created the image.  That's the great thing about beauty: you only really find it when you stop looking for it.  ...Kinda like the car keys (which are usually in my pocket, by the way).

"Here's mud in your eye."

It's easy to tell when a child, especially a boy, transitions from toddler to youth not only because the clothing sizes shoot up but also because he starts engaging in activities that require more soap.  Case in point: This little guy had just finished playing in muddy water with his friend (they threw it at each other, no less!) when I saw the photo op.  ...For the cyclist in me, I can think of only two words: Paris-Roubaix!
