Red Shoes & Skirt Underwater


Stephanie Frantz and I were doing some experimental video underwater with fabrics, clothing and shoes last Tuesday gathering some motion images for possible television content. We also had the housed still camera in case we needed/wanted it. Saw this and definitely wanted a still version.

Food & Drinks at Just George's Sports Bar; Mojito


I always enjoy this kind of shoot for the multi-city, multi-restaurant subject variety. Over the course of weeks, we'll shoot food, drinks, restaurant exteriors, an interior when the crowds clear, chefs, bartenders, operations staff and bring in talent for lifestyle sessions. One night the lifestyle session crew was nearly twenty. The added benefits are the client staff is great to work with (Captain George's and Just George's), we have a talented and easy-going art director and the there's no danger of going hungry or thirsty.

Avidyne/S-TEC Alliant glass flight deck in a 1987 King Air 200 aircraft


This is the cockpit of a 1987 Beechcraft King Air 200 aircraft after an electronics upgrade to an Avidyne/S-TEC Alliant Integrated Flight Deck (including digital autopilot). Probably only a trained flight crew can appreciate the sophistication and the new system. Glass displays replace many of the old ones.

Also, you had to be there as it was happening to realize how complex a job it was.

The photography was done with a Hasselblad 39-megapixel system using studio strobes, long exposures and multi-captures to accurately record all the different light densities. The result is a single 1.6GB image file.

Raindrops and Light


A gentle rain this afternoon left some pristine drops on the black fabric of some new lawn chair cushions. At about dusk, I added a strobe sidelight through all the drops giving all of them a tail. The "worm" in every drop are my four fingers wrapped around the grip of the MkIII.

This is not my usual thing; I just liked the drops.

Back in the pool


We're back in the pool again after a long (but mild) winter.
