Getting Tall Artistically

Getting Tall Artistically

My inspiration for this shot is pretty simple -- I see elongated shadow shots all over the place, to the point where if they were once interesting, they are now an over-done idea except maybe for your vacation scrapbook. That said, I grabbed this shot of "me" late one afternoon to get me as long as...

Event On Fog Delay

Event On Fog Delay

4th of July on this beach pie. I wanted viewers feel the fog rolling in. I wanted to capture the essence of the power of nature to render useless all those VIP chairs.

Blowin' In The Wind (Sketchy)

I have been working on a series of sketch-style renderings of photographs. I like the feeling the style conveys, just partially telling the story but letting the viewing enter the scene as well.

Well, if that's going to provide me with subjects and lighting, who am I to complain. I asked the director and the gir...

Still Life Sketch - Mint In A  Bottle

Still Life Sketch - Mint In A Bottle

Often times, we are served water at a cafe and pay no attentional at all to it. This time was quite different. I forgot about my friends, the conversation, the menu, and just started taking shots of this still life, certain that there would be a way to convey the refreshing simplicity of the bottle...
