I shot this photo with a soft box and a reflector. The image is cooler here than it is on the print. I think the lighting adds mystery to him which since he is a man of mystery it fits him.

Freida The Wonder Duck!

I have collected rubber duck's since I was about 6, I found Freida in a store and she reminded me of a duck that my grandmother had given me and had broken so I no longer have it. I love to photograph Freda so this is just me having some fun. Oh and as a little side note she is the only one I have named she just looks like a Freida.

Sound Slides at Old Salem

Just thought that you would get a kick out of seeing how they make bread and of hearing what they think of there customer's at Winklers Bakery in Old Salem North Carolina.

I took this photo after taking the photo of Erin a friend of mine, after taking another photo of her for a project. I thought that the light was nice and it just screams Erin so I am using it for my blog. I shot this photo using my Canon Mark 2 1D using Broncolor stobs. It was shot using a shutter speed of 1/100 at f-22.

Tear Sheet #2

I shot this photo of Erin a friend of mine to replicate a tear sheet for my advertising photography class. The original ad is selling mascara and they used false eyelashes, which I thought looked really strange so I didn't use them. I used my Canon Mark 2 1D with a 80mm lens and broncolor strobes. The photo was taken at a shutter speed of 1/100 and a f-stop of 22.

Self Promotions

We had an assignment to create business cards and post cards for ourselves. I took this image at the NC zoo. My models name is Adam(he's so great!) I took this with my Canon 1D Mark 2 and my 17-40mm lens. I shot at 1/125 at f-4. We used indesign to create the cards but apparently blogger doesn't like them and they look horrible to here is one that I made in CS2, to mimic the ones for class.

Morning light

I took this at Winklers Bakery in old Salem. We had an assignment to shoot photos for another sound slides. This is just one of 29 photos that will be on it. I shot this using my Canon 1D mark 2 with my 35-80mm lens I was at 1/60 shutter speed and F-6.3.

Tear Sheet #1

We had to do a lighting assignment for my Advertising lighting class and I chose an Acne Medicine ad, my product is not the same as the ad but other than that it looks the same. I used my Canon 1D Mark 2 and bron-color strobes. I used my 35-80mm lens at F11 and my shutter speed was at 1/125. I had to touch it up a little in photoshop, I took one photo that was over exposed to get a really white back ground, and then took one with a whole bunch of fill-cards in it for a proper exposure on the product. The following photo is my setup.

I shoot with a Sinear 4x5 camera with selective focus. and a 90mm lens, my f-stop was at 11 and my shutter speed was at 1/500. I used Kodak Extachrom 100. I used a Broncolor stobe with a softbox.

A Morning at the Zoo

We had an assignment to go and collect photos and sound for my multimedia class and I shot this photo of a fellow classmate, Kathryn Lawson during this assignment. I used my Canon Mark2 1D with a 16-40 lens, my f-stop was at 5.6 and my shutter speed was at 1/500. This was just such a neat angle I had to shoot it and little did I know Kathyrn walking through it made the image! Thanks Kathryn.

Haitian Drum

I shot this drum for a joint project with the design department at school. I used a Premo Bron Color light, with a soft-box and fill cards to get this look. This image was shot using my Canon 1D Mark 2 with a 35-80mm lens. My f-stop was set at 22 and my shutter speed was set at 1/80.The following photo is of my set up.

"Lost in Time"

I shot this watch to see what kind of problems might occur when shooting another project. I shot it in studio at school, with a Premo Bron Color light. I used a soft-box and fill cards to get the look that you see here. I used my Canon 1D Mark 2 with a 100-300mm lens, my f-stop was at 22 and my shutter speed was at 80. Thanks to Adam for the use of the watch! The following photo is my set-up.

I shot this for one of my classes, we were told to shoot a dessert and to have it look appetizing show a time, and a place. I feel that this image shows all three. I shot it at school with the Mamiya 645 with a Leaf Aptus back. My setup is shown in the drawing below. I shot at F-5.7 with a shutter speed of 1/15 on a macro lens. I really enjoyed this project even though it took me an hour to style my food.

Morning at Night

I shot this at my house in Asheboro, NC close to 5:00 pm. Using my Canon 1D Mark 2 and a 35-80mm lens. My shutter speed was 1/200 with a F-stop of 4. I lit the scene with a Vivitar 285 on a light stand placed facing the camera and set to F-8. I think that this image is so neat because it was so late at night and it looks like the sun is rising over my mail box.
