Mostly photography, but other stuff too

Outside my window

As I was drying dishes this morning, I looked out my window and saw this scene. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would make a great B&W image. So I grabbed my camera and waited for someone else to cross the street and this is the result.


Behind the curtain: A fashion show

A couple weeks ago, I shot the preparation and behind-the-scenes goings-on at fashion show. Here are some of the images I made.

Scenes from a lookbook

I did a lookbook shoot about a month ago, it’s finally out, so I can post some of the photos. I can’t say I’m totally happy with the results. They’re not bad  images, they just don’t have that thing that grabs you by the eyeballs and says “Look at me!” The composition feels off. Not shooting as often as I’d like is part of the problem. Just like anything else, if you don’t use it, you lose it.


HDR iPhone test

Since I found out that I can do HDR photos with an iPhone, I’ve been playing around to see how good the quality is or if I’m better off using software to merge images that I’ve bracketed.

The light range seems to be pretty good. There’s detail in both the light on the clocktower, street lights below and in the shadows of the buildings. But at 100% it looks grainy. It’s seems to work well enough for online purposes, but I’d be reluctant to get anything printed larger than 3″x5″ with it.
