My first photo shoot since my mom passed away in April. It was a about 2 months since I used my camera, but luckily my friend Jemma had time to play around in the studio before she went to EDC. I'm slowly getting back in the saddle again.

Photo shoot with my favorite model Mackenzie.

We played with natural light & reflections, using a white backdrop & gelling the background to be the color(s) of our choosing, and then a quick fashion shoot. I love shooting with Mac because she always pushes me past what is easy & comfortable to get creative, fun and complicated.

BTW, no pixels were harmed in the creating of these images. I just used Lightroom to adjust exposure, color corrections, contrast, etc.

Happy Veteran’s Day to all those who swore to protect and defend this great country; especially those who still put themselves in harm’s way to do so. Never forget that freedom is paid daily with the blood, sweat & tears of the men & women of the armed forces.

Simply amazing. 22 photos speak more about love and commitment than words ever could.

I closed out 2012 with a photo shoot I have been trying to do for the past couple of years; a trained ballerina on the beach during sunset. It was one of the funnest shoots I've ever had and I ended up with a lot of great shots.

All shot with my D7000 (hand held) using my 24-70mm f/2.8 lens at various exposures. The silhouette shots were done with natural light and processed in post to push the blacks and white balance adjusted to bring out the golden color of the sunset. The non-sillouettes were shot with a single SB-900 with a half cut CTO gel, no diffuser set to TTL.

Another shoot with the lovely Mackenzie. Unfortunately, most of the photos I took violate the photo policies here, but here are a handful that are allowed. :-)

While walking from dinner to a bar in my neighborhood tonight, I somehow came across the +Brian Brushwood doing promo shots. How awesome is that?!
