Welcome to the gallery page. My main interest in photography is in portraiture and headshots. I do however enjoy food photography and macro photography. I will post some of my images here. I hope you enjoy them and feel free to comment on any of the images. I will try to post some of the technical details of the shots and some of the post-processing steps that I use in creating the images.
I have really developed an interest in portraiture over the last year. Right now I would say that I am searching for a style. I am a big fan of Glyn Dewis, Peter Hurley, and Joel Grimes. I finished reading Glyn Dewis’ book, Photograph Like a Thief: Using Imitation and Inspiration to Create Great Images. Glyn believes that, “if you are striving to find your own style, one of the most powerful exercises you can practice is to find influence and inspiration in the work of those around you, and then emulate that work in an effort to define, shape, and grow your own photographic voice.” The image above, a self-portrait. is my attempt at emulating Glyn’s technique. For this a lot of the final result is in the post-processing process. The photo was shot with a Nikon 24.0-70.0 mm f/2.8 at ƒ/8.0 66.0 mm 1/200sec ISO100. It was shot with three speedlights using a Westcott Rapid Box Octa, a Westcott Rapid Box Strip, and a Rogue Flash Bender with the diffusion front. Now for some of you pros out there you may be wondering why I would use this combination. The answer is simple, that is what I have. The technique that I used can be found in the YouTube video by Glyn Dewis. Be sure to skip ahead to the beginning of the live presentation.
This was shot with pretty much the same settings and I used the same post-processing technique.
Below are a few more headshots and portraits with different styles. I will talk about style in the blog section of this site. Be sure to check out some of my thoughts on style and photography in general.
