Liquid Lamp

For a while I was really into water drop photography. There are opposing dynamics with this type of work though which makes it both rewarding and extremely frustrating. To become good at creating these shapes there is a lot of technical stuff happening. Some of those are the equipment, the liquid you’re using, any additives…

Taj Mahal secret stairs

This was one more of those things that we wouldn’t have seen if we didn’t have our guide, Saeed. As we were getting ready to leave the Taj Mahal, he took us over to this little side area. It was within sight of the exit and left to our own devices we would have made…

Columbine Flower

I took this picture in Battery Park City. I take a lot of my flower shots there mostly because I live there and also because they plant such a wide variety of flowers around the parks. But this trip wasn’t really about capturing specific flowers, it was about testing out a new piece of kit…

Place du Capitole in Toulouse

I took this shot about a year ago. I love these big town squares in Europe, they’re so beautiful. This is from when I spent a long weekend in Toulouse, which is in the South of France. Toulouse is a pretty cool little city. The old portion is made up of tons of little criss-crossed…

1,000 Words – What Does Your Picture Say?

We all know the old adage “A picture’s worth a thousand words”. Well I’m not sure about 1,000 but it’s definitely worth quite a few and one of the things I like hearing about with people’s work is the story behind the image. Maybe it’s the mood that you remember when you shot it, or…
