I have always wanted to try infrared photography. I cheated and used photoshop.

Saw this car on my way to the art festival. Took a quick shot and tweaked it in Picasa.

Went to check out the art. Lots of people, lots of artist, great good, and even some music. Took the Pentax ist D with me. Still a solid little camera. Worked really well.

The Look of Gemini

Posted by Picasa
As with anything done too much it can get quite trite and boring. Which is where art jumps in to give things a unique and original look. I like the look of this photo and how the light splits up the face and the dress. Mirroring the image only helps to further enhance the theme of Gemini, the twins, which easily represents the duality of life, the yin and yang, the light and the dark.

Here is the long awaited medium format camera by Penatx, the 645D. 40 Megapixel sesnor and compatible with all AF medium format lenses. Sells for about 10,000.

Thanks to approximately 40 effective megapixels, it assures a wide dynamic range to faithfully reproduce the prevailing ambience and the sense of depth in super-high-resolution images that are rich in gradation and truthful in texture description. In order to bring out the full potential of the lens and the image sensor and assure the highest level of image-resolving power, the CCD unit is designed with no low-pass filters.

Beauty, Style & Fashion

Posted by Picasa
It takes a great team to make things happen. Fashion photography is no different. These pictures are the result of a great team. From the agency who cast the model-- then the hair stylist--- to the make up artist-- and of course the designer of the jewelry and designer of the clothes followed by the model of course and last but certainly not least is the photographer who without there would be no proof of the event.
A photographer is a director, cinematographer, lighting specialist, and producer all in one. A good one will create quality, a great one will create art. But it really doesn't stop there. Most pro photographers either have a team of editors (or do it themselves) that can turn the raw image into something so much more. The results are all in the dream.
