a new idea

During my last shoot with Natalie, I shot almost entirely with a very wide open aperture setting.  This made for shots that have a very narrow depth of field.  I really like how the in-focus area of the image draws your eye.  I also just really like the look of a totally blurred background.  I […]

Shooting with Natalie

Over the weekend I had the privilege of shooting with Natalie Minx again.  Our first shoot was fantastic and we had such a fun time.   I’m glad that she came back to Hawaii. Rather than shooting in the woods like we did last time, this time I chose a secluded beach.  I always enjoy seeing how […]

New Scans…

Tonight I got my new Epson 4490 Photo scanner!  What a huge difference!  The quality of the scans are fantastic!  I’m a very happy photographer having purchased it!  Here’s just a few scans from my last shoot with Sera.  Compare these to the earlier post…

Sunday’s Shoot with Ashleigh

On Sunday afternoon I had the pleasure of shooting again with Ashleigh.  I met Ashleigh last summer and we had a great time working together then.  And of course we had a great time on Sunday as well.  Since I had already shot with her with lava rocks and in the woods, I decided that […]

2 shoots yesterday

It ended up that I had two shoots yesterday. The first shoot of the day was a sunrise shoot that turned out to be pretty awesome. We went to a location that I had shot at before. Although this time we hiked down around some tide pools that I had never seen before and got […]

New Shoot – 8/30/08

Today’s shoot went very well. Elizabeth, who was visiting from Virginia, was wonderful and It was a real treat to work with her. We went to a beach that I had scouted a few weeks ago. It’s one of those beaches where there isn’t another soul around. So we had the whole beach all to […]

An interesting find

In between shoots, I usually look back through old shoots to see what I missed or looking for lessons to learn from my mistakes. Today I went looking through a shoot I did with the model who I now refer to as “Goddess”. She has asked that I keep her name anonymous. When I first […]

Another shot of Sylvia

As I mentioned earlier… I never got around to editing the shoot I did with Sylvia back in February so I decided to start going through it. I absolutely love working with her because of her eyes. From the first shoot I did with her I couldn’t get over how beautiful her eyes are. So […]

A sense of peace

As I was going through some of my past shoots I realized that I never fully edited a shoot that I had done with Sylvia back in February. I remember making her a cd of the shots…unedited, but I never did edit them myself. So I started going through that shoot and thought I ‘d […]

Nude in Trees

On my last two shoots, something that come up was the idea of climbing trees nude. The shots I got are quite interesting and beautiful. As I’ve been editing two shoots simultaneously I found both of these images and felt the need to share this interesting Phenomenon. Maybe one day I’ll do a whole shoot […]
