I can’t speak highly of these guys enough. Everything they make is just golden to me. One of my most favorite bands, ever. And you’ve probably never heard of them. Until now. These photos from this show are probably some of the best I’ve ever done, in my opinion. That’s the power good music I absolutely love has over me and my creative vision.

Didn’t I just shoot this same guitar last sunday? Oh well, regardless. There’s a heat wave on so nobody in their right mind wants to go shoot outside. Or leave their house for that matter. So hey, I was productive.Share on Facebook
…but it’s still a nice night. Tonight, at Marsh Creek State Park ::Share on Facebook
Just having some more fun in the home “studio”. A modest 3 light setup to get this interesting shot. Lots I would of done differently, but also lots I liked. So, here you go ::Share on Facebook
Ok, you got me. I couldn’t think of a witty title for this post. Anyway, Quick Step John, last saturday 6.12.08 at World Cafe Live ::Share on Facebook
…On a sunday afternoon, what do you do?
Go around your house looking for stuff to shoot, thats what.
This was done in my home, on my couch with a black sheet form Evil*Mart (purchased long ago, I don’t go there anymore ).Share on Facebook

Show review of Thursday night’s Milton & The Devils Party show at the north star. With a nice shout out to my new friends Caves Of Mercury.Share on Facebook
This was all done in about 30 minutes, on my couch with a white sheet from Evil*Mart as a background. Simple two light setup, using a lighting kit that all together cost under $500. When you figure most “professionals” use lights that costs thousands of dollars, it’s pretty amazing what you can pull off on the cheap.

It’s a web site devoted to off camera lighting, on a budget.
One of the biggest single destroyers of good photos is the little pop up flash you have right on your camera. Get that thing off camera and your whole world will change.

Driving home from work today, I looked into the sky and saw two things.
- White puffy clouds.
- Nice blue sky in between said puffy clouds.
- Low humidity in the air.
This is a very good sign for determining if your coming sunset is going to be either blasse’, or spectacular. After a while you learn to read the clouds. And tonight, I was right on the money.
