Fine Art Photography: Photographs Within Photograph

Even if it’s only once, I really must give this a try . . . These images are also part digital photography, part analog photography (KONO! Rotwild + Fuji Instax Wide), and part digital photo manipulation. The digital image was shot using Canon 5DS R with 70-200mm lens, lit with  Profoto B1 monolight + a…

Playing with Light

Just one of my many midnight experiments . . . Throwing light, creating shadows, playing with reflective objects, and trying various camera settings.   Save

Giving this series a second life . . . I shot this series way back when I was a natural light photographer and didn’t give a jot about camera settings. It was a much simpler time when all I cared about was the final image. Sometimes, I really want to go back to that mindset…

This Summer // The Trigger

To me, This summer is all about trying new gears, learning new lighting techniques, and translating my more-unconventional ideas into visual forms I tend to stick to the tried-and-true . . . But I grew dissatisfied with my previous works . . . In my eyes, they are pretty . . . but bland, not…
