daffodils with a macro lens

The neighbors caught me lying on a blanket on my front lawn just inches from my subjects. I have a great macro lens that I use for my close up photography. I heard about this lens while I was working in Florida at One Kreate. The top photographer down there recommended this lens to me and I have always been happy with it. It is a 50mm canon 1.5 lens, an oldie but a real goodie.

This week in photography-fog

What can I tell you except that this week in Connecticut felt more like a week in London. I guess with the changing temperatures and the precipitation it is only inevitable for some foggy conditions. It is also a great time to capture some dramatic images. Here is an interesting video on shooting in the fog.

Never let the rain or fog keep you from capturing photographs, you can achieve some interesting images with the light.

International women’s day

I photograph many people in my studio. I will do a bunch on location as well. It really depends what kind of look that you are going for. My studio images are a little more like “headshot” mode, but I am really looking for expressions of the face. I always like to say, ” let’s go for the approachable look”. Friendly etc….. In honor of International women’s day, I would like to introduce you to Andrea. Andrea is working in sales and came to me for a professional portrait.

These are amazing!  Wow… I’m SO HAPPY with the way they came out!!!

Winter Images

Living in Connecticut is such a joy. As much as I enjoy Florida or California, I really like having four seasons. The changing light, foliage and colors gives me an opportunity to capture ever changing images. Winter is one of my favorite times of year because of the crisp air and clear nights. I still would like to do a star trail shoot before spring so hopefully I will get that up here too. I will research youtube and other photographers to get an idea of how to pull it off and make it look exciting and fun.

These are a few of the many images that I have taken over the winter. Thank you for looking.
