What a spectacular sight.
I’ve done a lot of changes to the Corvette Grand Sport over the past 5 weeks and wanted to wait until most of the mods were installed before taking more photos. As with most of my car photos, I try to recreate the feel of ads that I’ve seen for similar vehicles. I’m not usually a fan of selective color images, but the title photo seemed well suited for it. This car makes it really hard to use my normal processing settings for bringing back a blue sky in a non-HDR daytime image. Continue reading
With a couple of days off work, Lisa and I headed up to St. Helena to enjoy a stay at the fantastic Meadowood Resort. On the way I picked up a new helmet at Wine Country Motor Sports on Sonoma Raceway and on the way back, we met Patrice and Samantha of Vice Versa wines. The only disappointing thing about the trip was the continual rain—I had my Mark III with me but didn’t want to risk it in the deluge. That left me with Instagram. Continue reading
Slowly but surely replacing all the plastic bits with carbon. Lettering painted to match the calipers.
Last February I took a trip back to my hometown of Bossier City, Louisiana. Although the point of the trip was really to show Lisa where I grew up and meet some friends ahead of a wedding, I did get a chance to snap a few photos around various places I lived/frequented as a kid. The textures on these shots are some of my favorites of any set I’ve done to date.
Updating a year’s photography backlog, round 3.
Did you know that I offer services for professional headshots usable in corporate presentations, LinkedIn profiles, resumes, or pretty much anywhere else you need a clear, well-lit photo? Shameless plug, but if you need a shot please contact me and we can set up an appointment!
After receiving my third request to draft an organizational chart and realizing I didn’t have high-quality images of my team to include, I offered an hour of my day to do photos for the IT team. We had 15 teammates take the offer and one of our conference rooms was converted to a makeshift studio today for about an hour over lunch.
If Instagram was the easiest place to start on this photo catchup, my panoramas would be the second easiest as I’d previously uploaded all of them to my Flickr photostream. One of my favorites, the photo above was taken from a bridge in Kyoto, Japan. Also from that shoot came one of my most favorite abstract shots viewable via my portfolio page. Most of these panoramas, when printed at 300dpi, are longer than six feet!
Pretty thrilled that I can post this entirely from the WordPress app on my iPhone.
I was struggling to come up with a good starting point for catching up on photos over the past year. Maintaining two separate Lightroom catalogs can be a real pain sometimes. Then it hit me.
Just like the best camera you have is the one with you when needed, the easiest place to start was with the Instagram photos neatly organized on my iPhone!
It’s been a long time coming. My blog has finally gotten a much-needed refresh. I’ve done so much wioth my photography over the past year and barely updated the blog at all. With several of the enhancements I’ve built, uploading photos, building a portfolio, and managing posts just became much simpler.
