Warthog & Phantom Buzzing The Baseball Diamonds!

Well, not really. These were very cool remote control airplanes that were flying around the practice ball diamonds. The kids were having trouble concentrating because the planes moved VERY fast. And they had the planforms of the real aircraft. They were electric and had high speed (45,000 RPM!) fans. I think the pilot said they […]

Those are cool! I’m surprised that Arik hasn’t gotten into these. I guess he’s just more the car type! Maybe he doesn’t know about the 45,000 rpm bit? Rpm’s always jazz him!! Good pix of those fast moving little suckers!! (Only 20 days to go, Bro!)

WSHS Seussical Slideshow

I took a few shots at the musical last weekend and made a compilation of them for this slideshow. The actors and the choreography were beyond compare. I applaud them all and would have been actually applauding except that I had my hands full of camera. I did not record the actual sound track so […]

Looking at these slides made me feel like I was sitting in the front seat watching the play all over again, your shots are amazing, I love the emotions that are captured on the kids’faces! Also, the lighting makes the cat look scarier and Horton sadder. Thanks so much for doing this Lee, the seniors will have it forever. Kristen did a superb job choreographing the dances and she was a beautiful bird.

WOW!!! That was amazing! Who makes the costumes? The kids? The hairdos on some of those gals were just astounding!! Loved the background music but found myself wishing for the real sound track. Kirsten looks adorable!! All that “daddy pride” is well justified!! Give her a congrats hug from her Aunt Chris!! Terrific job on the photos!!!

New Baby Photos!!!

Some friends of ours just welcomed a baby boy into their family and gave me an opportunity to practice my hobby. I had a lot of fun! The little guy was only a few days old and he stayed alert and seemed to watch me like a hawk. The big sister was having a blast […]

Just the lighting through the window in their living room. Mid day but sort of cloudy so was great.

Hey Lee, Great Job! The little guy was pretty alert for 1 week. I loved the selective focusing. What lens did you use? The only thing I would do is turn some of them into B&W to get rid of the backgrounds. Everybody loves B&W photos, especially for the baby photos. You are a fantastic photographer! I am very proud of your achievement. Keep it up! Luvu

That’s a good peekaboo shot but baby boy looks sleepy to me! Must just be the newness of him! Nice to see a newborn in something other than a onesy!! Great pix, Bro!! Lighting was really good! Was it a set up or just the room?

Please vote! Which Top Hat Do You Like Better?

While on our Road Trip, we stopped for lunch in Middleburg. The building was very old and the food was good. I took a couple of snaps, the light was very low, essentially lit by candle type lights and windows. I did this at ISO10000. The first shot is “out of the camera” and the […]

I can’t decide which I like better. I agree with you about the additional detail in the mantel being nice, and I really like what you did with the hat (leaving some light and painting back some of the original black). If it were me, I might have drawn a layer mask over the upper part of the image (except leave the hat as processed in image 2). Then I would feather the layer mask so it doesn’t show 🙂 If you want me to explain what I’m talking about, feel free to shoot me a mail. Nice work either way!

I like shot #1

Chris - January 17, 2011 - 4:45 pm

I like the original hat better, bro! That’s because I tend to like “warmer” photos……sort of a gold glow to it. The processed hat is definitely more detailed but the “feeling” left me kind of cold. All in the eye of the beholder, huh?

Night Shoot

Last night I did a shoot of a “Flag Retiring” ceremony hosted by a local Knights of Columbus and group of Boy and Girl Scouts. The evening was very dramatic, the weather was outstanding, and it was very, very dark. I shot with and without flash, the withouts were taken at ISO 6400 and 12800. […]

That’s quite dramatic! Was there any lighting other than the fire?
