It is sad that abortion is legal to such a late time that the fetus has developed body parts.  If abortion is legal better a more streamlined process. Better still if so many of those who oppose abortion did not also oppose birth control that would have prevented this in the first place.

LED is so cool compared to quartz but:
I have been using some LED lighting lately.  There are color spikes in the LED waveform so they may have more green or other colors than you expect.  These can be filtered out but it is kind of a pain.  The big problem i find with the LED lighting is the la...

Story
Tagline
Dp Camera Operator
Introduction
Studied: UW  UCLA Masters degree and some years of Doc studies till I traded it in for Doco..

I grew up in a really small town in OR...and it wasn't like any movie about it..

I believe the big political divide of our times is really Urban and Rural..

Started shooting film, have shot with almost every(film,sd,hd,4k etc) camera out there. Cameras do not make the look of a film, set designers do.  Lighting  n movement of the camera seriously changes it.

Nothing can save a bad boring story.

My X wife once said, This would be a pretty good business if you weren't always buying stuff!!



Bragging rights
TJ Williams sr. Dp and or camera operator, on a number of projects see IMDB, most proud of my Dp work on both, "The Rights of All" documentary about Alaska Native Civil Rights, National PBS Air, (see the url below for the trailer) and Conservation Pathfinders another HD show for National PBS distribution. This doc tells us what needs to be done to protect wildlife, and how similiar the needs are in the US and in Africa. Sure I've won some prizes Emmies n Cine Eagle etc. So many years of working with and for such a bunch of wondeful interesting talented people, who wouldn't feel blessed.

1`0 03 2015 went to restaurant with two woman who were having a meeting. My request to sit on the shady side was met with well wait for table to clear even though there were several vacant tables. I eventually had to ask for a manager before we could be seated. The waitress then made very audible comments about me. While my friends had their business meeting I read my Ereader, The worst part was after the meal when I got up to go and they were right there to clean up the table I left my Ebook reader. on the table in plain sight. Guess what when we called back it was "LOST" I would call the headline Angry Waiter steals Ebook!!!
