So we came across the little view of two old barns from the road side and began to venture down to the waters edge it was stunning...

Black and White in Black & White

Due to an hour long traffic jam, one of the restless shepherds got up and started...


So I had just finished a biography on Karsh, and while I found it interesting, I really don't know that I want to get back into doing portraits. But I admire his work. He was known for placing the subject's hands in many portraits, and lighting them as carefully as their face. With that in mind, I spent a fair amount of time photographing this...


Homeworks after school.

Only natural lighting.
I used venetian blinds to control and diffuse light.
