Just For Fun  - 
 
For all those photographers who don't like critique about their subject's eyes not making solid contact with the camera, I came across this article in today's news. It seems that cereal box designers are trying to move character eyes such that they make better eye contact with children to encourage more sales. Eye contact is everything, folks!

Stegall. Heard of them? You will. I had a blast working with them on the images that would be used to show you visually who these talented women are.

Whenever I see an old abandoned house or barn I just have to shoot it. This one was occupied until the late 70's as far as I can find out. It is a log construction with no indoor plumbing, heated by a wood stove in the kitchen and an oil stove in the livingroom. Can't you hear the family inside - children running, pots being stirred on the stove?

For those who may not have seen +Peter Hurley latest video, it's a 'must' see to get your subjects to look way cool. The video "It's All About the Squinch" focuses on the eyes and how to lose that deer in the headlight appearance that so many have. Check it out by following this link:

Peter Hurley is the man. I have learned a lot about headshots from his videos. The guy knows his stuff. It helps that he was a model before he became a photographer. Its all about the Jaw is also a good one of his.

I watched this on YouTube and it has me thinking about a smaller camera.  Thanks for posting!

With the improvements in Photomatix and PhotoShop I find myself revisiting favourite images. Here's one from one year ago.

Headshot Critique  - 
 
I realized I hadn't posted in a bit but I'm shooting quite a lot over the next couple of weeks. This aspiring actor came in today and we did several wardrobe changes with and without scruff. I've retouched some blemishes, a few hairs on his cheeks and reduced the darkness under his eyes by about 30%.

Expression is nice, lighting is really flat and seems a bit under exposed on him as well, it's unfortunate as it is a great expression that could be helped with better lighting and exposure.

Have I missed the Sony Nex-7 review from the China experiment? I keep watching the blog but maybe it was posted someplace else in which case I'd really appreciate a link to it.

Eddington's is my 'go to' place for everything from lunch with the girls to celebrations or quiet, small dinners. The patio is wonderful in the summer months (sometimes just pop over after dinner for a dessert and specialty coffee with friends) and the indoor space is lovely all year 'round. Quite an historic building if you take the time to look around. The menu is varied and I can honestly say I've never had anything close to a poor experience. Thursday Pizza Nights are big fun ... love their potato pizza! All around wonderful - Eddington's never disappoints!
