Last week, we went to the theatre here in Asheboro and James had some models arrive for some portfolio shots.  All in all, it was probably one of the more hectic shoots I’ve ever participated in.  I had a really neat shot lined up but it appears that my lighting was somewhat off, so this is the best of my usable shots.


I really loved the setup.  It sucks that so many of them turned out to have motion blur.  Oh well, you live you learn.

White lightning and natural light.


Assignment 3 for Chuck’s commercial class was a bit of a doozy.  It’s an executive portrait… of Chuck.  Chuck, our instructor who grades everything we do. Chuck, the man, the myth, the legend.

So this is a photograph of my instructor, Chuck.  For the record, while he refused to sign a model release, he did give me verbal permission to put this up on my blog.  So he can’t sue me, right?

Here’s Chuck!

Look at him!  Loooooook!

Look at him! Loooooook!

I’ve just found some of my Ian in a bearsuit photos.  Captured on my Mamiya pro tl, this was probably one of the more demented projects I undertook.  As soon as I can pull them off of my hard drive (my cord is being kind of a pain right now) I’ve got to get them up here.

UPDATE!  Here they are!

Bears for Gore!


I find it amazing how much better I’ve gotten at photography since this project.  I’m definitely going to have to continue in it.

Here’s a pretty sweet video that I found.  Just something sort of nifty and not terribly professional… until I find a use for it, that is.  And believe me, I will definitely find some reason to add this to a photograph.  😉

And here’s how it’s done!

Think about what you could do if you added some flash to it… drool.
