I’ve neglected my blog for the last several months…been busy with work and lazy with the blog! I’ve recently been shooting a lot of jewelry. I want to share 2 recent projects. The first one came from Grip Design in Chicago for Archer & Swan Jewelry. We produced images for the website, look book and brochure. They were great to work with and the ideas were strong. We also have worked on several projects for the local custom jewelry firm 65 Allure. Images were created for their website and ads.

I love shooting all things shiny!!….http://gripdesign.com…http://archerandswan.com

When I think about making photographs it’s nice to be simple and quick…minimal equipment…no restrictions and just react to my surroundings. I spend so much time in the studio (which I truly love) it’s good to get out and see. Here are the results of my two short trips.

Driving around and rushing to get errands completed…I slow to make a right turn and out of the corner of my eye I see a giant sandwich…hmmm that looks tasty. What a shocker it is to see food shots I’ve done on the side panel of a truck…like a billboard on wheels.

It’s always nice to be surprised!

I was in Italy this past September. I’ve never been out of the country before other than a trip to Vancouver Canada or Nogales Mexico, which is not saying much! My work takes place in a dark 2000 square foot studio shooting things that don’t talk back…still life, food and product. I saw this European trip as an opportunity to shed the constrains I place on myself in my daily photographic routine. I decided to take one camera and one lens. My choice was the 50mm lens which best resembles our own visual view of the wold as seen through our eyes. I wanted to shoot the people, places and tables-scapes that I immediately responded to without any preconceived notions.

My approach to shooting people was to shoot mostly from the hip (literally) I didn’t want anyone knowing they were being photographed. This was very exciting because I never really knew what I was going to get, and that didn’t matter.  I let my intuition and understanding of the field of view of my lens guide me. After each day of shooting I would go back to the hotel and look at my files and enjoy the surprises.

I let everything I shot be quick, spontaneous and completely composed in the full frame of the viewfinder. I kept a promise to myself that I wouldn’t crop my way into a better picture…it must all be there in frame or forget it.

So here are some of the results…Enjoy!
