Bethesda – Final

Bethesda – Final

Wrapping up my little tour of Bethesda around my office building. I wanted to get away from the glitz and glamour that is the main business and shopping areas and move to the older historic Bethesda.  No less nice, but not all modernized yet.  These images were shot on my Fuji X100s and my Sigma DP1.  The images shot on the Fuji have some perspective issues that were mostly fixed in post but there are still some “anomalies” because the…

Baltimore Tattoo Convention Part 1

Baltimore Tattoo Convention Part 1

Went to the Baltimore Tattoo Convention on Saturday and shoot a whole load of images.  I’ll break it up so people don’t get overwhelemed with people getting inked.  For inquiring minds, no I didn’t get any work done.  I am too cheap to pay US prices on tattoos.  I get them done by my guy in Thailand. For those of you un initiated in the tattoo arts that back piece is likely months worth of work.  Looks like the guy…

I have Wood

I have Wood

No apologies for the title.  I’m emotionally 13 and I still find it funny.  These shots were done on two different cameras and two different lenses on two different days.  You could guess if you looked at the EXIF data if you were that desperate to know.  Not that there is much difference between the cameras.  The lenses are drastically different, one being the Jupiter 11A and the other the Olympus 45mm.  So one shot at effectively 270mm and the…

Harmony

I was having a zen like moment with the simplicity of the image.  I could not figure out which version I liked better here so I’ll toss all three out. Two were shot at the same time just at a different angle which changed the light and the third was shot later in the day with more shadows.  I didn’t stage this shot. The branch from the tree, the shadows falling on it and the pebble were just there as…

Precious – Color from the OM-D EM-1

Precious – Color from the OM-D EM-1

I named the camera Precious much like Gollum named the One Ring from the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit.  This was the culmination of selling off all my Canon equipment and switching to mirrorless cameras for all my work.  No regrets.  I also got the most excellent 12-40 2.8 lens which is what was used for all these images.  The photographer in question might have thought that the camera was set for RAW but that wasn’t the case so these were…

Historically Inaccurate

Historically Inaccurate

While everyone seems to love the flowers I needed a break.  These images were shot at the same time with the sun being bright in the sky.  To be perfectly honest I am just goofing around here which is why the image sizes are all over the map and there isn’t even a consistent editing style.  I did debate removing the pigeons from Grant’s head I kinda like the irreverence of the whole thing.

Kegger

I have lots and lots of unprocessed images.  It gives me a back catalog to work with even when I’m shooting actively just to change it up a bit and not to wear people out with endless scenes of whatever I have shot recently.  This is from Gordon Ramsay’s Pub & Grill in Las Vegas at Caesar’s Palace.  I liked how they lined the entrance with kegs so one morning before I had to start work I wandered down and…
