Fun with silhouettes...

f/11 @ 1/320 at ISO 400

This image was taken last year when we were given an assignment to represent spring in a photograph.  This was not the chosen image but I thought it was fun.

This image was captured with a Nikon D300. 

Up Close and Personal

f/8 @ 1/250 at ISO 250

This is a Wolf Spider Jason found in the backyard.  I just knew that any minute he or she was going to jump at me but I put my big girl panties on and continued to move in closer, I'm glad that I did! 

This image was captured with a Nikon D300 and Sigma 90mm macro lens.

Lumen Printing

Lumen printing is a technique that used RA-4 color printing paper and objects placed on the emulsion to create an image using sunlight.  This particular lumen print was made by Elizabeth Ratledge a fellow classmate of mine at RCCOur assignment was to trade images and edit each others separately in photoshop.

Car Fax video shoot in Vegas

f/13 @ 1/160 at ISO 200

This photo was taken June of 2010 in Las Vegas.  I was out there to photograph the National Independent Automobile Dealers Associations National Convention.  While I was there I was asked to help with stills for a Car Fax commercial that would be aired at the National Quality Dealers Banquet.  

This image was taken with a Nikon D300 and Nikkor 18-70mm lens.

Focus Stacking Assignment for Macro Class

f/16 @ 1/250 at ISO 200
This is also a combination of 48 stacked images.

This was an image taken for my Macro class at RCC.  Photoshop is making it possible for us to obtain much more depth of field than normal with macro photography by stacking the images.

This image was photographed with a Nikon D300 Nikkor 60mm macro lens and PG-2 focusing stage.

Ashley is a friend of mine who agreed to model for an assignment I had last semester in my Portrait Lighting class.  She was such a trooper, it actually was snowing the day of the shoot however she was willing to stand around outside in the cold for me.

This image was captured with a Nikon D300 and Nikkor 18-70mm lens.
