Barrel Racing Recap…

Last weekend was a very exciting opportunity for workshop attendees, as well as myself as I held a sports photography workshop with Roberts Camera Education here in Indianapolis centered around Barrel Racing.  What is barrel racing you ask?  I’m glad you asked.  Barrel racing is a rider attempting to take a horse in a clover…Read More


Walking the Walk…

So in my last post I mentioned that I spent some time in Chicago a few weeks ago.  I wasn’t shooting the entire time that I was there though which was nice.  I did have a little bit of extra time, built into the schedule, even though said changed quite a few times over the…Read More


Lighting a Zepplin…

In my opinion, one of the hardest things about lighting is the modifiers.  Lights are easy.  You turn them on, some flash and some don’t; and you point them at whatever you want to “enlighten”.  Yea, you have to pick the power setting, but that’s the basic idea.  Whether it’s a speed light, a Alien…Read More


The Playoffs…

You would figure that having worked the the Indianapolis Star as long as I did, I would be no stranger to sports teams, or even important playoff games of some kind or another, but that is absolutely not the case.  When it comes to shooting sports, that skill was something that was primarily on pause…Read More


Lightpainting Workshop…

About three weeks ago I held my second Roberts Camera Education workshop here in Indianapolis.  The first workshop was a Sports Photography workshop which you can read about here.  This workshop was much more in homage to one of my photographic idols, Dave Black.  The latest workshop was a lightpainting workshop, and honestly it was…Read More


New Sigma 50mm F1.4 Review…

You would be surprised how often I get asked what lenses are good lenses to buy for folks either beginner or Professional.  It’s almost a daily occurrence actually.  Not that I mind, because I don’t.  In fact I’m in middle of a three part series called “the right l ens” that I’m doing for Robert’s…Read More

When the Sith Call…

It’s not every day you get an email saying you’ll be in the presence of the darkest of the dark lords in all the universe.  That happened to me a few weeks ago, and since then I’ve been waiting for all subsequent emails in regards to the topic to be crawling backwards slowly due to…Read More


The New Nikon D4s…

For a photographer, getting a new camera can be a tough yet exciting thing.  Really it only happens once every so often, kind of like buying a Car.  (At the Nikon D4s Price tag of $6500, it’s eerily like buying a car actually…).  I don’t remember who said it to me first, but it has…Read More


With Gusto…

Last week I had what I consider to be a unique opportunity to enter a world that my lovely Shannon knows, but I know nothing about.  That world is the world of Software Development.  I still don’t know much about Software Development, but for an evening last weekend I was hired to document the launch…Read More
