I'd like an overhead food photo please!

To me, an avid gourmand, food photography is not only a real treat, but also a guilty pleasure. I spend quite some time looking at food photos and I can assure you it is a very healthy habit. It keeps me away from actually eating everything I'd like to taste so I just love good photo feasts!They say that in order to feel like eating, you first have to like what you see on your plate. There's nothing more inviting or appetizing than an awesome food photo. Food photography is something to savor... continue reading

Perhaps because NY was filled with fashionistas and models, I noticed a lot of very, very thin women in the park and on the street.A jogger along Central Park South could have posed in an anatomy class in lieu of a prepared skeleton. The prevalent look in California, even on the most fashionable streets, is slightly heavier.Fashion models in the 1960’s were about... continue reading

Creating quality images

Quality: the standard of something as measured against other things of a similar kind; the degree of excellence of something.     It has taken a while for me to create quality in my images. All the usual elements that help achieve quality are education, experience, research, time, repetition, and a certain level of gear. Not necessary but extremely useful are tilt-shift lenses for still life photography.I guess this is obvious. If the quality of your image looks out of place when... continue reading

Starting Out

This is really a journey of discovery.I wouldn't call myself a top shelf photographer, but my photos just go to waste, being stored in various places and many have died senselessly with the death of a hard drive.Most stock photography sites want photos of people or buildings.I prefer nature.I hate worrying about staging people with silly props, getting paperwork signed, and worrying about all the various details when I can just go outside and find something interesting to share with others.... continue reading
