Time lapse project for Powerhouse Retail Services.

I was hired by a company to produce a time lapse video of one of their projects. I spent 2 weeks in Ohio photographing the process. It was very interesting and challenging to get all the angles and action in the photos. The completed project can be viewed in the attached video.

Sunset Time Lapse Video

So again I am playing with the intervalometer and the camera. Trying out settings and playing with video compression. This is just a quick video of the sun setting from the back deck. I wanted to get the transition to stars in the video but some settings didn't work and my battery died shortly after sunset. I will correct these issues and hopefully soon have another video for you.

New toy Intervalometer now with more time-lapse video!!

An intervalometer is used to capture time lapse photography with still cameras. I recently received mine after 3 weeks of shipping and receiving faulty cheap versions. The intervalometer ( shutter release timer) is fairly easy to use and I had to try it out right away. Luckily I had a fun little subject matter for about an hour. The subject matter was Lisa and I assembling our new CharBroil grill. The video is attached. Stay tuned and don't forget to share/sign up for my blog. There will be MANY MANY more Time Lapse videos coming. Hopefully with much more interesting plot lines.

Multiplicity Family Photo

I had a very fun request for a photo shoot. Do a multiplicity photo of a 16 mo girl (Norah). The session went extremely well considering Norah was tired and is in the process of growing food grinders in her mouth. She cooperated with all the outfit changes and the strange places we put her. There were a few outbursts of protest, some of them by Norah, some by me. But after a few hours I had all the images I needed to put together a pretty fun multiplicity photograph for Norah and her parents. The photograph above is the final composite of the photo shoot. I have also attached a video that in just about a minute compresses a few hours of photoshop work. I hope you enjoy both the photograph and the Video. If you did feel free to share it with your friends by clicking on the...

DSP & DZmedia collaboration.

I came up with this idea when i visited DSP (Dave) a few weeks ago. I tought the studio would be a great and very dynamic place to photograph a multiplicity image. I brought this idea up to Dave and he thought it would be fun to try. We decided on positions on the fly and kinda shot from the hip on this one. playing with lighting as we went along. In total the Photostat took about 2 hours with lighting relocation outfit changes and multiple exposures. The longest part of this shot was the post production editing. The amount of masking in this image is insane but i think it was worth it in the end. Dave set up his NIKON and set it to self time interval. The camera took a photo every 4 seconds as we set up and shot. He Did his video production magic to...

MY PHOTOGRAPH ON A BILLBOARD!!

/> Recently I photographed a real-estate agent. The photos were mainly head-shots for brochures and corporate flyers. One of the photos however was to be placed on a billboard. The photograph above is currently on display on HWY94 in St. Charles MO. It is just north of midrivers mall drive. If you drive by and see it let me know. I have not yet seen the billboard myself. I will try to get over there and get a picture of it to attach to this blog. Edit. I got a chance to look at the billboard. Looks pretty good if I should say so myself. Its located north bound hwy 94 just before central school rd. on the east (right) side of the road. If you get to see it. Post up and let me know.

Photo session with Skylar

Skylar's Mom and Dad are friends of mine so I've photographed Skylar since she was an infant. As I arrived at their home Skylar was happy and giggling. Everything seemed just right for a 2 year old's photo session. Little did I know, Skyler was really not in the mood to model, for photographs. She wanted nothing to do with me or the small studio I  had set up. After 30 minutes of crying, pleading, blowing bubbles and chasing dogs (totally unrelated) we finally managed to snap a couple of pictures. Skyler realized we weren't going to give up so she decided to join us in the fun. She warmed up fast after the first few shots and we ended up getting some great photographs of her. I hope her family likes these shots as much as I do. Let me know what you guys think. I'd love to hear your...
