I shot this while out in the Arcadia Arboretum.  It is a pretty nice place with lots of peacocks and plant life which I will post on later dates.  I like going for silhouettes and patterns.  I like simplicity a lot and this is one of my simple and easy shots.

I have finally made the move to LA from NYC.  I am starting to settle down here and will be posting on this blog on a regular basis again.  I started an Etsy page so check it out if you can.

A little fun

Amusing shot of Patrick Cann.

After wrapping up taking headshots for Patrick at his apartment, he asked me if I can take a shot of him with his director’s chair.  He had gotten it as a gift and now was a good time to put it to some use.  Patrick can be quite a comedian so he easily made this shot work.  All I did was use two lights on left and right zoomed in tight to give a spot light effect and a strobe in an umbrella for overall fill.

July 4th

This was how I spent my night on July 4th. Waiting for the fireworks. I had my 5D with me but there was too many people standing to make a good stand and shoot the fireworks. Maybe another time.
