The eyes have it!

Get the eyes right and everything else falls in place. For a different look on Jennifer, I shot her in open shade, camera exposure mode in spot meter, expose on a midrange tone to blow out the background, and presto! Instant album cover. Nikon D.3, ISO 400, shutter speed 1/30, at 6.3, post in the CS3.

No Words Needed!

For me the object of photography is to say all it's all in the image, if no words are needed, you've done your job. Little Nate's eyes say it all and guide you through the photo.

Sports It Is!

The shooting of High School sports, which I shoot a lot of, is always challenging. The whole idea of shooting any sport, is all about the moment. Occasionally, I get to shoot Junior League or even beginners, which I find to be even more challenging, but by the same token more rewarding. This shot was done about four years ago for a friend of mine who was coaching and had a son playing on the team. This came at the very end of the shoot, after three hours in the sun, while trying to isolate busy backgrounds, and get a cool moment. I think the thing that makes this photo work for me, Is the individuality displayed in each one of the kids faces, but still acting as a team. D2H, 550MM. 200 ISO, f4
