One from the archives today. I spent many mornings a while back alone or with my friend Mike at the Leslie Spit, most often on brutally cold mornings. While we weren’t always successful in coming back with great images, it was still fun. Missing Toronto. Just a bit.
Week 6 was down to the wire. A busy week, led to having me concept, shoot and process this in just a few hours today. Need to make sure I at least give myself more time for the concept this week. If you are lucky enough to have one of these contraptions in your home, then you will recognize the expression that I am making here. I used 2 flashes here. One inside of the oven at 1/4 power @24mm, with a full cut of CTO gel, and another behind... Read The Rest →
We had a nice little snow storm yesterday here in Amsterdam, where the snow flakes were anything but little. The city quickly turned into something that looked like out of a movie set. The snow quickly covered everyone and everything, yet it was just beautiful to look at and experience. There is something special about Amsterdam in the snow that has to be seen. Hope you enjoy the photos.
A couple of weeks ago found Sandy and I in California visiting dear friends, and exploring Los Angeles and San Francisco. These are a series of first images I wanted to share with you. Taken on our second day in L.A. we took to the streets of old downtown L.A.
Week 5 brings, what is hopefully an interesting composition/composite One day left to get week 6 in and no photo made yet… see below for the original takes of this composite.
Very late posting this week, but posted none the less. AND taken in the right period, which is what counts isn’t it?
A little late posting, but officially taken during week 3 of this project. Week 3 was interesting, as I felt it would test my resolve to continue this project. Yes that early… I was traveling, and wasn’t sure when and if I would be able to pull something out that I would feel happy about. But, when an idea strikes, I tend to run with it. And so, this is the result. Taken in San Francisco in the Palace of Fine Arts, this past Friday so technically still in week... Read The Rest →
This was a fun one. Shot early in the week as we are in Los Angeles this week. The idea came to me early in this process and I’m glad I was able to stick fairly close to the original concept. It was awesome trying to fit a tripod, umbrella and light stand into my small shower, but somehow it worked Shot using a single 480ex with an umbrella, camera right at 1/4 power.
So I’ve decided to start a 52 week self portrait project. I plan on posting one new self-portrait every Sunday, this is the first. Hope you don’t get sick of looking at my face Taken at the last minute this evening, in a foggy Vondel Park.
2012 was a year of adventure. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit 12 amazing locations in 2012. Some of them I had always wanted to see with my own eyes. Some a return for a second look, and some as a return to home. I saw Rome covered in snow! In Florence I learned what Italian food is really about. In Venice (oh Venice…) I got lost in its beauty and mystery and learned more than I thought possible. In Istanbul I straddled Europe and Asia, and learned that my fascination with churches expands into... Read The Rest →
