Italian Beach Photoshoot

Back by popular request in an earlier post on here; "Beach Swimsuit Photoshoot" this is from the same session in Carovigno, Italia.   The natural lighting of this photo really occurred by pure luck; I took many photos from endless angles and the majority ended up unusable.  The wide aperture setting made for a nice …

Behind the Lens: Italy

Colosseum

This is a vacation video put together for the benefit of friends and family; loosely documenting my trip to Italy last year.

Celebration of atmospheric pollution; sunsets/sunrises

Because admit it; the best shots of the sun emerging or retreating from the horizon usually occur when there's significant particulate matter in the air between the sun and photographer. Guess there was no point in color photography before the Industrial Revolution. Scientists actually study paintings of sunsets from different periods to determine air pollution …
