    Old BAMC - HDR

    I usually don't go for this style but because of the buildings history I felt the surrealistic style best told the story. The building was a hospital and during WWII it housed a lot of the wounded and had a physiatric ward, some say they here noises and have seen ghosts. I felt the sky...

    Old BAMC - HDR

    I have been working in this buiding since 2005 and have took many photos of it but finally decided to do a HDR with some character. I tried many different versions and came to like this one. Some of my coworkers feel the sky is demonic but I think it is fitting due to the buildings past. The...

    I give up on the SB-900 for field use...

    If it is a camera mounted flash bracket then try using the Nikon SC-29 off shoe cord; I use it all the time when on the flash bracket. http://www.nikonusa.com/Find-Your-Nikon/Product/Flash-Cord/4766/SC-29-Off-Camera-AF-TTL-Cord.html

    Hoku and Luke Photo Shoot

    I am watching my brother's Husky, Luke, while he is deployed. Here are some shots with him and some with my dog Hoku. This is Luke being noble. This is the real Luke, very devilish. Oohhh, what is that flashy thing? Now this one took a while to get my Hoku to lay down on Luke.

    some HDR's of my grocery getter

    I love my mazda6s, I just recently took off the door molding. I think it looks a lot better without it. I also changed out the antenna for a color matched shark fin.

    Stir Crazy!! How Do I Expose This?

    I noticed the overlap of the diffusion paper shows up noticably in the glass. I would recomend getting some white form board and bouncing light. This is a good vid on how the boards can be used. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxDG3WDT7Kw

    Photoshopped or real?

    I have shot some drifting stuff and depending on the tires and wind you may not see any smoke at all. I was suprised too when I first started shooting drifting that you will not get smoke all the time, especially with the novice drifters. But yeah, the image is totally PS'd. Here is a Jag...

    Highbridge Park BX

    #1 is my fav. Good contrast in color and the harsh vs soft textures. The fog in #1 works well. Good job.

    Hoku and Rudolph Impromptu Christmas Shoot

    I was at the pet store to pick up some dog shampoo and saw they had Christmas dog toys and got an idea to do a photo shoot. I went home and gave my dog, Hoku, a bath and got the studio up and running. I was excited to play with my new lights, two Profoto Compact 300R's. So here are the results...

    George Washington Brackenridge Villa at Christmas Time

    Saturday night I came across the George Washington Brackenridge Villa at the University of the Incarnate Word (San Antonio, TX). I haven't shot at night in a long time and thought now would be a good time to brush up on my skills. Here is the shot with minimal post processing.

    HDR attempt

    Nice, although the reflection on the right side looks weird because it has a reflection of sky in it but doesn't match the tone you created in the sky. It is a little thing. Nice work.

    D3 or D700?

    I am looking to purchase the D3. Now with the release of the D700, what does the D3 give me that the D700 cannot? Please leave cost out of the equation. Thanks. Right now the faster fps and shots per battery charge has the D3 in a slight lead.

    BMX Back Flip

    That is the extent of the original photo. I had to hurry and get into position and I wasn't fully thinking of the outcome. I wanted to get the sign at the bottom and not lose the rider at the top of the flip so I shot it they way I did. I look at it is a lesson learned. I will keep that in mind...
