Made some mononchromatic conversions today. This one is from a portrait shoot with some friends a few years ago.

What do you think?

Belly Dance

This would be my other favorite photo of the dancing shoot.
Inspiration for this shot came from an earlier photo I made of Jenny that she and I dearly loved (as well as other folks,) but wasn't shot to handle the treatment I wanted to give it. So we shot it again with this sort of treatment in mind. The post processing was inspired by Regina Pagles and +KelbyOne . I shot this just two days after +Scott Kelby  hosted +Regina Pagles as a guest blogger. I didn't follow her methodology exactly, but was certainly inspired by it.

Take a look at the rest of the images from the shoot, http://www.rabimaging.com/…/Jenny-and-Lind…/G0000G6rvO5Q8iTE.

Melba Beard

This 1929 Brunner Winkle Bird used to belong to Melba Beard. Melba was one of the charter members of the 99s. Amelia Earhart was the first president of the famous group, still going strong today. Go take a look at this plane in person at WAAAM, or take a look at more of my images from the April Second Saturday, http://www.rabimaging.com/…/G0000.3aNGuabm…/C0000EcJo.3ukMsE.

I am currently working on a project that will hopefully get the story behind this plane and the amazing women who have owned her before the public.

Belly Dancing

I've been needing to update my portfolio a bit and have been looking at the idea of approaching the shoots as if I was shooting a commercial shoot. So I decided to contact these two dancers I know and see if they would be up for us doing a shoot as if we were advertising for a cultural/musical festival. We had a blast doing the shoot, and I am quite pleased with the results.

Please take a look at the gallery here, http://www.rabimaging.com/…/Jenny-and-Lind…/G0000G6rvO5Q8iTE. Or, my updated portfolio, http://www.rabimaging.com/#!/portfolio/G0000.qq7UQWwSyA.

Blue Hour

My favorite time to photograph lit buildings is at blue hour. I love the balance in illumination between the lights on the building and the sky with some light in it still. This brings out some fantastic color.

This March I took a trip downtown to photograph the capitol building at blue hour in the Spring. Take a look at some of the other images, http://www.rabimaging.com/…/Oregon-State-C…/G0000Xq08W7lbHaQ.

Canon​ made some big video announcements today. Inspired me to write a blog about my thoughts on video for photographers.
Behind the Scenes Classic Wings Aero Services Shoot from Rick Brown on Vimeo. With Canon's announcement today of the XC10, a compact, prosumer 4K camcorder and a new 4K video format, XF-AVC; I felt inspired to discuss whether I felt video was a good thing for those of us who are primarily still ...

In my mind one of the most important aspects of photography is communicating things about this world, in a way that most don't see. One of the simple go to methods is to shoot from an angle from which people don't normally observe the world.

Today on my blog, I wrote a bit more about my feelings on this matter. Check it out.
The Importance of Unusual Angles. If you want your photographs to be great, they need a little something to separate them, at least a little bit, from the way we usually experience the world. One way to achieve this is from unusual angles. Walking up to a subject and photographing it from a ...

In March there were some engine tests ran at Oregon Aviation Historical Society, providing some great photo opportunities. Give them a closer look at, http://www.rabimaging.com/gallery/OAHS-3-15/G0000k5f34FWOh1M.
