Here’s another one from yesterday’s pinhole shoot. Dave Rudin is working at my studio again today. This afternoon I take him to the airport so he can return to NYC.

This is one of the shots we did today for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. It was shot with a Nikon D200 at 3200 ISO with about a 1/10 sec exposure. I was hoping for more models, but several were unable to come at the last minute, so I had to make do with two beautiful […]

Just thought I’d remind everyone that Sunday, April 29 is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. http://www.pinholeday.org/ Here’s another pinhole photo of Nemesis from our test shoot getting ready for tomorrow’s shoot. My friend Dave Rudin from NYC is visiting this weekend and shooting in my studio. (His blog is linked on the right.) Today I found […]

Here’s Niecy off a Big Bend trail posing on the brown rocks out in the sun. Again, by paying very careful attention to the exposure I was able to pull the color of the rocks up even though to the eye the sun pretty much washed the color out.

Another from our wandering off the trail on the way up a mountain at Big Bend. I loved the dark color of the rocks in this area and was looking for a spot to contrast them against a skin tone. Had to find a spot where the sun was not directly on the rocks or […]

On our third day at Big Bend we did some real hiking, climbing a small mountain to visit some interesting rock formations. Soon after we started off on the hike we decided to leave the trail and explore some rocks nearby that looked interesting. We found some good spots to shoot. It’s often the case […]

On our second day of shooting at Big Bend we stopped at an old abandoned mercury mine. We stayed away from the mine itself, but explored the many ruined buildings in the area. This is the doorway of what may have been a home when the mine was active.

Have I mentioned the sun at Big Bend. The searing, brutal, relentless, glaring hot sun? I thought I had. Challenging light. From the moment the sun rose above the horizon until the moment it sank below it, it blasted us. It cooked us. It created lens flair. Hot highlights and dark shadows. Never a break. […]

There’s an old movie set in the Big Bend area. It looked real familiar when we stopped there. I’m sure I’ve seen it in some westerns. It made for some good backgrounds. Here’s Niecy in front of the “church.” This is the last of the photos I’m going to post, at least for now, from […]
