The Quality of the Story

By | Fine Art, Photography | No Comments

Too many times we (myself included) love to rush into the technical/production aspect of whatever we are trying to create, when we should really be focusing more on the quality of our story first. It’s a unique problem in ‘still-image’ visual arts (for example, writers don’t have this problem. They are completely focused on story). We love to create ‘the…

Second Star To The Right

By | Photography | No Comments

How To Shoot The Milky Way We took a family trip to Sedona, Arizona last month. Of course, you might be thinking “why would you go to Arizona in the middle of the summer?” I thought the same thing.

One on One, Part One.

Debbie emailed me last November from Atlanta. She’s a wedding photographer and was looking for ways to change things up in her lighting and the post-processing of her work (including her portrait work as well). A “creative bootcamp”, as she put it, in her initial email. She asked if I did any workshops. I didn’t have any plans for one…

TWiP Interview

By | Photography | No Comments

It’s been about a month since the last post. In some many ways, the holiday season is my busiest time. In addition to my commercial/editorial work, I pick up a fair bit of Christmas card work as well. I’m looking forward to wrapping things up over this week so I can get to some Christmas shopping and baked-goods gluttony. In the meantime,…
