My First Shots

This past weekend of the 4th I took my first shots ever of fireworks.  Although I did not have a tripod, I thought I wound up with some very interesting shots.  I have posted a music video of the pictures.

Let me know what you think.

Coming out of the dark abyss that has swallowed me...

It's been a long time since I have been to this site.  Ok, way more than a long time actually.  If it hadn't been for a recent friend request, I probably wouldn't be here still.  Life has gotten in the way of a lot of stuff.  I found out in May 2014 that I have cancer and am currently undergoing chemo therapy right now.  We've had to sell a lot of our gear since then, however, I do still have my camera and am looking into upgrading to the T5i at some point once things settle…

It would not be right not to share this link of a insightful interview with a photographer!

Until this point in time I could never place or understand certain things about myself. The rebel inside me! My love for visual art! The list goes on! I used to buy several photography magazines a month from the same retailer. I had my reasons for buying them. As we all do I knew at some point I would have to stop buying so many. The lady was standing behind the counter, she has seen some of my work in the past and as I placed the mags on the counter she snapped at me, but not in a…

Model Release question???

When using only a peice of a photograph (ie a leg, an arm, a breast) with no face of the model in a photograph do I need a model release from that model even if you cannot identify who they are?  I do boudoir photos and I have a pair of legs from a model that I have cropped and want to use to sell, but I dont know if i need to get a release or not. You cannot identify her by her legs alone.

So how do you protect your camera while shooting in the rain without breaking the bank? It’s actually relatively simple and I have used two of these three methods many times in the field.
One method is buying a poncho suit…
