Had the pleasure of photographing Johnny and Nancy, this evening. Just a quick post featuring a few of my favorites:
This evening, my daughter and I took a walk around the Grand Haven, Michigan south pier, home of Grand Haven’s most famous landmarks, the lighthouse and tower. While walking around the beach, I asked a handful of random people if they would be so kind as to pose for an impromptu photo. To my surprise, I had a 100% positive rate, so thank you all for participating. Of the handful I photographed, these are 3 of my favorites.
A huge “thank you” to everybody who participated and shared a few moments of their time. I hope you all had a great evening!

To continue from last entry’s extreme sports theme, allow me to introduce you to Mariah. She is a RipStik master and, aside from the occasional twisted ankle, glides over the road as if on a layer of air. Her ride, however, is not a hovercraft, but ABEC-5 bearings that make the RipStik wheels turn like a precision machine.
Using a single strobe, modified with a softbox, Mariah stands well illuminated with a dramatic, cloud-filled sky as her backdrop (along with the road on which she shreds).

It was a beautiful day for outdoor photos, today. Though it is only 22 February 2012, it feels more like late March – very spring like! The location where this photo was taken is one of my favorites, when it comes to urban background photography. This area has a good blend of graffiti, drain pipes, and other discarded material that just gives the area a certain atmosphere. Being that this is close to the Grand River, the area where this photo was taken offers many different atmospheres all in one convenient location. No shortage of options!
In terms of portraiture, one lighting technique I enjoy employing is using natural sunlight as a hair light / fill light, while using a daylight-balanced strobe as the key light. I find that this method allows the model’s face to be properly exposed, while the sun gives her hair a warm, beautiful, golden glow. An example of this technique in action would be in this photo I took, yesterday.
Lately, I’ve been on a real science fiction roll. My taste in television programming, my web surfing habits, and my photography have all started to reflect this sudden craving for all things sci-fi. Following is a recent photo inspired by all of my sci-fi stumblings. Enjoy!
