Eye sharpness – proper exposure is key

akron-photographer-senior-photos-editing-1

February 27, 2015

I have a thing for eyes...and when I'm shooting, especially close...to get as much detail of the face as possible...the eyes must be sharp. I am weird about it. I know that once I set my machine to the gray card and I'm dialed in with my camera settings...the eyes are sharp at 100%...we are ready to rock. This was shot at 200ISO, f/2.5, 1/1000..with an 85mm prime. I rarely shoot at 200ISO but with all the snow and as bright as it was, I thought what the heck. I LOVE MY GEAR !!!! and....shooting photos ...

A talented young lady that I had the pleasure to photograph this past summer is climbing the charts. Georgia and her band, The Georgia Preachers made an appearance on Fox8 Cleveland this morning. Also, one of the photos I shot of Georgia this past summer was shown on Fox8 Cleveland. Georgia uses quite of few shots from this session in her promo materials. This is all pretty dang cool if ya ask me. Georgia Kostyack is a 16 year old Seven Hills native who has performed her original country pop rock music all around ...

BEHIND THE SCENCES

High School Senior Swim Team Captain – behind the scenes Akron Photographer Joel Echelberger

behind-the-scenes-high-school-senior-simmer-photography-akron-photographer-joel-echelberger-3

January 05, 2015

Below are just three BTS images taken from the High School Senior shoot at a local YMCA. The last image on the page is the end result. You can see that I am using only one remote speed light on a stand. I used the beauty dish for some shots to concentrate the light more on Mason, but on a few I swung it out of the way and zoomed the head of the speed light in for a different effect. I was shooting at a shutter speed of 1/8000 of a second on these to totally eliminate the ambient light in the room. My other camera ...

My dang lens hood spun

1967 pontiac gto akron photographer

October 27, 2014

Look at the top right and bottom left corners of this image...DUH...it's my lens hood. I love the shot...but didn't notice till the next shot that my lens hood spun a bit. Oh well....I still dig it. This kind of stuff seems to only happen to me but I'm sure it doesn't. It's really tough to check out every single little thing in the scene before you hit the shutter release. Another thing I just noticed is Jake's mom and everyone else walking around out of frame there...I can see them in the driver's door and left rear ...
