Capriccio!

This photo was taken at a seaside restaurant in Bonaire, Netherland Antilles.  The image is a  compilation of two images one exposed for the interior and the other exposed for the scene out of the window.  The images were captured at f22 using a 17-50 zoom lens set at a 17MM focal length for maximum depth of field and using a tripod, so both the interior and the window images are exactly the same.  Wide angle lens distortion was corrected in Light Room during post processing.  The restaurant has one of the best Wine Cellars in the Caribbean and listed by Wine Spectator as one of the 10 best Cellars of 2016.  The food is GREAT! 

Where it doesn't Belong

As a scuba diver, I've become interested in shipwrecks, their history and photographing them.  I'm always reminded that these large man made structures - seemingly invincible - are frail and small compared to the forces of nature.   This photo was taken off of Barbados using natural light and a wide angle lens.

Behind the Scenes

During a golf shoot, we used exclusively natural light with the aid of scrims and reflectors.  In this shot, the top of the golf cart placed the model in the shade and with the help of the assistant crew, a large reflector was used to light the model.  The all natural light choice was made because we were shooting on a working golf course and had to shoot multiple scenes (8 to 10) in and around the golf course and resort with very little time.   

Sedona Afternoon

I was in Sedona Arizona a while ago, mainly for scouting.  Every once in a while, everything just comes together.  The lighting was perfect - high thin overcast, the background was perfect, the textures were perfect.  The shot was taken using natural light with no modifiers, using a 70-200 f 2.8 zoom lens, shot at ISO 600, 100mm, and f2.8.  I wish I could so lucky all of the time.
