Indoor Beauty

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

I’m so tired of this winter.  I know…we all are.  It’s been an awful one.  And it just doesn’t seem to want to go away.  It’s almost April, but March, after teasing us with a few warm days, is still doing its best to keep us cold and miserable.  When I left home this morning to […]

Dance and the D7000

Friday, March 25th, 2011

One of my major motivations for getting the Nikon D7000 was the improvement I thought it would make in what I could do with dance photography.  But I really had no idea how huge an improvement it would be over my D200.  Now I know. I’ve been shooting dance since the 1960s.  Back when I […]

It seems that many of my favorite models are also talented photographers.  I think that has more to do with my liking to work with models who understand what I’m trying to do than with anything else.  Charlise is one of those “modelographers” and is very good on both sides of the camera.  One of the […]

Down on the Plantation

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

The nature preserve where I shot with Charlise used to be a plantation…actually two plantations.  The main buildings are long gone with just a few foundation stones remaining to show where they used to be.  But a couple small buildings remain.  And they gave us some protection from the bright sun for a few photos.  Above […]

Thinking About Our Friends In Japan

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Like everyone else I’ve been following the horrifying news from Japan of the earthquake and tsunami.  The scenes of the devastation are simply overwhelming.  It makes one realize just how much we are all at the mercy of nature at any moment.  Our feelings of safety and security are truly illusions.  Of course, as many […]

Dawn at the Beach

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Here are a couple more photos of the lovely Charlise on the beach at dawn.  The sun was unrelenting the whole time we were shooting, but at least it had some directional nature when if first arrived above the horizon.  And thanks to Charlise for being such a trooper that she was there ready to go […]

Naked Chicks in Trees

Friday, March 11th, 2011

I don’t only take photos of naked chicks on rocks.  Sometimes I do photos of naked chicks in trees.  While I was down south I was blessed with the chance to work with a wonderful new (to me) model, Charlise.  I had actually contacted Charlise on an earlier trip down to South Carolina, but it […]

One Man Show (With Lots of Ladies)

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

I share my studio with a very fine photographer, GaryM.  I just learned that Gary is going to have his first one-man show at the Zaum gallery in Newport, Kentucky.  I’m astonished that Gary hasn’t had his own one-man show before this…he’s been doing outstanding work and getting it published and shown all over the […]

A Lovely Pair

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

As expected, this past week has been exceptionally busy.  Getting tax stuff ready.  Trip to Athens for two days to photograph the winter concert at the Ohio University School of Dance.  Appointment with my accountant.  And a quick visit from my daughter who flew up from Tampa to do an interview for grad school.  I […]
