Mountain Time

- Blues guitarist extraordinaire Joe Bonamassa plays "Mountain Time" at the Landmark Theater in Richmond Virginia. Tonight was the sixth time we've seen Joe play live. He never ceases to amaze and delight and tonight was no exception. Canon 7D, 1/400 sec @ f/2.0, ISO 400, 85mm prime lens.

- I was inspired by fellow photographer Cait Wade's doggy portraits from her blog. So not having a dog, I enlisted the help of my good buddy Sherlock. He's always willing to get a little attention even if it means modeling for a few minutes. He has pretty dramatic blue eyes so those are the focus of this portrait. Canon 40D, 1/30 sec @ f/5.0, ISO 800, 100mm lens.

- We picked up a new piece of art glass by Jeff Price recently. This image is a macro photo that is slightly out of focus and yes that was intentional on my part. By illuminating with an LED Litepanel and blurring the image slightly, the patterns and colors really jump out. Canon 40D, 1/500 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 200, 100mm macro lens.

Sandler Blues

- Joe Bonamassa brought his rock-in blues to a sold crowd at the Sandler Center in Virginia Beach tonight. At exactly 8:00 p.m. Joe came out playing and didn't stop until two hours later. The band took a break, but Joe never does. It was an awesome show and even though it is the fifth time I've seen him play live, I always leave amazed. Here's Joe with the rhythm section, Bogie Bowles on drums and Carmine Rojas on bass. Can't wait to share some more photos from the show. Canon Rebel T2i, 1/200 sec @ f/2.5, ISO 800, 85mm prime lens.

A Lovely Shade of Blue

From 2010 Blog
This hydrangea has a lovely blue color, some might call it periwinkle. This night photography technique uses the micro Litepanel LED to eliminate the bloom. The LED light gives very true color results and since the low power light falls off rapidly, the background is black and the vivid colors of the flower dominate the image. Canon 40D, 1/800 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 800, 50mm focal length.

Faith and Hope

From 2010 Blog
- The Iris gets its name from the Greek word for rainbow signifying the wide variety of colors that can be found in the popular garden flower. Iris is also the Greek goddess for the Messenger of Love, her sacred flower is considered the symbol of communication and messages. Based on their color, the iris conveys varied messages. The blue iris symbolizes faith and hope and these have been a fixture in my garden for over 20 years. Canon 40D, 1/250 sec @f/4.5, ISO 400, 50mm focal length.
