Yesterday I did a bit of a social media experiment on Instagram where I more or less posted once every 20-40 minutes for something like a 12 hour period (with one exception in which I took an hour or so nap). It might have been a better idea to wait until a day that wasn't the Oscars to really see the impact, but I found it interesting none the less.

So, what was I posting? Images from a live painting session at so-called "Venice Beats" with Nora Ann-Francis Martin-Hall.

Although there is a good deal more on my Instagram account, I put up a short article on my website, with my favorite photos that are much more clean and nice (which Nora can feel free to steal). After you've checked my article out, you can see Nora's work on her Instagram account. She's amazing, I'm sure you'll love it.

This is my first time writing an article of this kind.  I've been looking for an outlet to try and give back some knowledge on studio photography, my process, as well as an over view on techniques.

Even if you're not interested in photography, check out the images inside.  You'll get to see images I've never published anywhere else, and gain an understanding that these images don't magically happen, there is repetition and a selection process.  It should be noted, that none of this would have been possible without an awesome subject and without a crew that supported me.

In the future, I may write more focused articles on specific photography subjects.  I'm still considering all those things as I move forward.

And also while you're at it, check out my new site!  I stealth launched it a week and change ago.  Right now it's populated with just my latest work.  I'm debating whether to put older stuff up or just the things I want to move forward with.

Some images from a scouting trip in Anza-Borrego.

Found my three locations and did super quick light tests.  They'll need more refinement on the day of, but they're good enough for proof of concept.

It's for-realzies. I'm going nuts.
Now someone just needs to give me enough money to buy this thing.
What do you guys think, is this a camera you'd want to shoot with?

===

For the work I do, I'd personally want the 5DS R. I'm moving further and further away from event work and getting closer to studio work only. I don't need the ISO performance as much anymore. Still, at this point I'd be happy with a 5D3. The MP is nice, but really the draw to these new cameras (for me) is the wider dynamic range, the filter pass remover.

Secondly, I think the 11-24mm announcement is a little bit overshadowed. Don't get me wrong, Canon has needed to create a lens that is a competitor to Nikon's legendary 14-24mm f/2.8, but I still don't think they've done it with this lens. Although the Canon is 3mm wider (which is actually VERY significant when dealing with an ultra-wide lens), the Nikon is still a full stop faster. It is preference, but all things being equal, I'd take the extra stop rather than the additional 3mm.

We’ve known for a while now that these cameras were coming. We’ve also seen their leaked specs (additional specs have leaked since) and we’ve even covered the upcoming lens. Oh, and we’ve seen photos as well. Either Canon’s security practices have more holes than Swiss cheese, or its marketing department has been pretending to leak [...]

From a Photoshoot that I did with Comedic Actor Robin Leiva

===

This photoshoot was actually completed some time ago, some of you may remember it. I just couldn't find the right background plate for it, so it has stayed unpublished until now. I actually have already posted the BTS picture for this image! So if you want to see how the photo was made, check out that here:

This image was definitely fun to create. Robin is a master at making facial expressions, he can produce an intensity that is unbelievable on call, even when when acting out an absurd and unlikely scenario.

To push and fillout the concept, we built up this intense strong look for Robin and used some of the eclectic props he had lying around. Crazy goggle-like sunglasses? Sure. Bakelite rotary phone? Why not. Orange tie with a leather jacket? Makes sense to me. Cue the facial expression and then have him push and punish an imaginary caller. Photo magic.

+Ben Ranalli, no natural light at all actually.  Check the post, there is a BTS photo showing how the image was made and the lighting setup involved.
If you have more questions about the lighting setup after you've checked that out, please feel free to ask away.

11 More Days.

I've been watching your kindness keep
A lonely company
Look at the fire and think of me
I've been watching you creep
Around my wandering feet
Trying for years to flee

I need not one thing more
Oh wrap the ground around
Your gentle winding mind
Oh guard the pounding sound
Breathe in your fiery air
Oh wrap the ground around
Give back a hungrier stare
Oh guard the pounding sound

You be the moon I'll be the earth
And when we burst
Start over oh darling
Begin again

My moon oh my moon
Not even into
Another eternity
Will you stop your lovely orbiting
I had held it a world away
Until my body 'gan to say oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh

Finally got around to changing my profile picture.  I think I've been using the same one for at least 2 years.  How can you blame me though?  Who actually likes to take selfies? (Obviously, not me).

If you want to know why I use Capture One for RAW conversion and also why I think it's the best color correction tool, look no further than this video from MICHAEL WOLOSZYNOWICZ.

What RAW conversion software do you use (Capture One, Adobe Camera Raw, Canon Photo Professional, etc)?  And why?

Ugh, thanks for being awesome Lara Jade!
It's rare to hear someone vocalize any of the inner turmoil that just seems to creep up, for creatives, on a large public stage (CreativeLive, for those who aren't aware is an international platform with extremely high viewership amongst photographers and other creatives).

Know what you're worth! Stay true to your vision! Go out and kill it!

My brain just exploded. Looks like Canon wants to take a bigger piece of the studio photography/landscape market.

What do you guys think about this if true?
Canon's announcing a new pro-level DSLR camera next week, according to CanonRumors, and now specs have leaked that reveal what we can expect. The 5DS (and 5DS..

Photographer of Dreams
Introduction
I just want to create imagery.  Methodically.  One piece at a time.

Like all those pursuing the art of photography, this is more than just a job for me. I want to make the images I see in my mind a reality. I want to make an interesting and lasting footprint. I most assuredly have a long way to go and it's a never ending process.

I serve the greater Los Angeles and Orange County Region, but I travel domestically or internationally as assignments require.

I specialize in environmental portraiture and headshots.  I travel to location to do shoots, and as such, I do not have, nor do I use a studio.
