You Don’t Need the Latest Camera to Create Great Images: Thresholded B&W

My fascination with Black and White images continues.  Here is a photo I took this summer with a 12 year old, 5 megapixel underwater camera that still works.  I took this little camera along on some of my best dive trips ever and it brought back a wonderful sense of deja vu. I also used …

That Retro Film Look

That Retro Film Look

Distracted by film of late, I have begun to see the potential for photos everywhere.  In the movie, The Sixth Sense, the young protagonist said, “I see dead people.” I don’t.  Instead I see dead technologies and I am impressed.  They certainly have their place in today’s world, if only for purists.  Somehow in the …

Winter Photography Bites

I find it very difficult to think up subject matter when I’m not getting enough sunshine.  It’s a winter funk thing.  Still, I can always find something compelling to shoot if I head out to the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, New Jersey. The key here is turn off the flash.  Flash = Bad when shooting …

Festival Food: A Great Intro to a Culture

Festival Food:  A Great Intro to a Culture

I shot this photo at a Cambodian Festival in Philadelphia in the spring of 2017. The booth sold Cambodian and Thai food, but not as I know Thai food from the restaurants that I have been to.  There were salads and colorful drinks that I had never seen before.  When I struck up a conversation …

Be Afraid.

“Kim Kardashian made 17 million dollers off her wedding.Divorced 72 days later & they’re worried about gays ruining the sanctity of marriage?” – @WorldGayPride This shot made me think of the above quote that I read. I was tickled at how absurd arguments can be simplified to the absurd logic that they represent.  Of course …

Got to Shoot With a Master

Meet Jose ‘Tutes’ Tutiven, an Ecuadorian-American who is getting a ton of great commercial photo work and a lot of acclaim for his abilities. On a whim, I trekked up to Brooklyn to attend the Photoville Photo Festival in Dumbo, right under the Brooklyn Bridge. This is he sixth year running and it was held …

My Eclipse Photo – Albany, OR – 21 Aug., 2017

Give the astrophotographers their due.  They deserve creds for all the great shots we’ve seen of the 2017 total eclipse.  They’re pros and advanced amateurs who work hard and produce great results. During the eclipse, I was doing more important work – for me, anyway.  I was being a dad, a husband, a son in …

Food: The Most Common Ground.

I had a friend who was afraid to eat at Asian restaurants.  “They don’t use chicken, they use cat,” he would say, pretending authority.  He had no idea that his closely held belief was actually a bad, old, racist joke – the guy was utterly serious. The worst thing is that he should have known …
