Thanks for still coming here after I’ve let the blog go for nearly a full week without an update. I’ll blame it on the holiday. It’s been a busy one, but a very enjoyable one. Since my last post on Monday here’s what I’ve been doing: Tuesday I shopped for Thanksgiving food, including the difficult-to-obtain […]

Something Old and Something New

Monday, November 24th, 2008

That’s a new photo…but shot the old way…on film. I’m starting a new project inspired by the availability of a new way of working with film. Call it hybrid photography, if you will. I’m shooting medium format black and white film and having it processed at a lab that does very high quality scans at […]

Dance Your Life Away

Friday, November 21st, 2008

More from the wonderful senior dance majors at the Ohio University School of Dance. The light for this piece was easier to cope with than the one in the previous post that was lit by flashlights and the choreography was very interesting. Couple that with really strong performances by the dancers and a few nice […]

And More Dance

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

Lighting, of course, is key to successful dance performance photos. And particularly when working with student productions I never know what I’m going to encounter. The Ohio University School of Dance has an excellent lighting designer on the faculty who teaches lighting design. When he lights a piece I know I’m going to be getting […]

Dance, Dance, Dance

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

I’ve spent the past week immersed in dance. Three days of watching lighting rehearsals so I could be familiar with each of the 19 dances. Then one evening of shooting two concerts in technical rehearsal, one after the other. Then back home to spend three days downloading, sorting, editing and uploading the photos. I shot […]

Stealing Souls

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

This post is a response to a post that Lin made on her blog: so you’ll probably better understand what I’m talking about if you go there first and read what Lin had to say. First I need to say that I hold Lin in the highest regard. She is a beautiful model, has […]

In The Circle

Monday, November 10th, 2008

It’s a busy time at my place. We have a friend visiting from Finland. She leaves tomorrow early in the morning. And, meanwhile, I’ve been photographing a dance concert, actually two concerts, at Ohio University. That has involved spending this weekend in Athens watching the dances while they are being lit. I’ll be doing more […]

This Rocks

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

I’m resisting doing another political post. I’ll just say that now that the promising, posturing and lying is over for a while it’s time to see if any of the promises will be kept. History tells us that it’s not likely. But I have hope, while remaining a skeptic. That’s Phoenix Kelley posing while freezing […]
