The Zoo

April 19, 2014

I took Mallory and Max to the Akron Zoo today...we had a blast. The weather was perfect. Max is all over the place,he's a riot. He's a little afraid of the goats while Mallory can't get enough of feeding them those crackers that they have there. The grizzly ridge exhibit is pretty cool too. We were lucky to have one of the grizzlys splashing around in the pool to get this photo of Mal. Max would not get off this garden tractor. He loved it. He loves any dude stuff...tractors,trucks,motorcycles...you name it. He really ...

I have a big project shooting product for a local printer/label company and I am really digging this. Here are a few variations of the same location....just some tweaks on exposure,lighting,smoke and ice. There are so many layers,colors and textures going on in these photos...I love it ...

March 19, 2014

I'm all geared up to start shooting product. I currently have two jobs in the works to shoot some product photography and can't wait to get started. The light tent that I am using is a 40" Cowboy Studio Photo Soft Box Light Tent that you can purchase here on Amazon for only $49.99. At first I thought this might be a little overkill but now I'm glad I purchased a light tent of this size. My plan is to stay busy through the winter months shooting product for local businesses/manufactures since it's tough to get outside ...

Small softbox

March 08, 2014

Sometimes you just don't need to tote around a bunch of gear to do some creative off camera flash work. I picked up this little Fotodiox 8" Octagon Softbox and NEEWER® LED Flash Light Bracket on Amazon for less than $40.00. I can't wait to try them ...

A look at the little video set up

March 07, 2014

It's a super simple set up but I think it will get the job done. For now I am using one 150w shoot through umbrella for lighting. I plan on shooting the videos after dark and the couple little test videos turned out pretty nice once I got the video settings dialed in on the ole' ...

I recently got a new Twitter follower,and that just happens to be the folks at Buckeye Professional Imaging. I am super excited that they found me online. Soon after I received the notification that they were following me on Twitter, I got on their website and started checking things out. I sent an email to them and to my surprise got an email back from Steve Troup,the Owner. The email I sent consisted of some hair brain ideas that I have that could really get Buckeye involved. I sent some test files up to them and ...

Hot shoe mount

Camera-Hot-Shoe-Mount

February 07, 2014

This may not look like much but, I think it's pretty neat...especially for $9. I'm going to use it to mount to the hot shoe of my camera and then screw my crappy little Flip camera to it to shoot first person footage of me doing a photo shoot. You'll see. You can buy this from amazon right ...
