Shadowplay

Tonight’s corporate gig for The Rockwell Museum @ the Corning Museum of Glass Auditorium, entailed shooting the welcoming reception for National Geographic Photographer Peter McBride. Tremendous work! You’ve got to get to the Rockwell to see his work!
This shot from his fine exhibit & also tonight’s slideshow presentation to well over 500 people is so cool…you look at it fast and at first your brain just doesn’t quite get what’s going on here……shot straight down from an airplane above….the dark horses are actually the SHADOWS of the white & brown horses standing just beneath and to the right of each of them. isn’t that cool?
I had the pleasure to chat with Peter this morning, as well as tonight & found out he is a fellow Nikon shooter, very cool, and that as I suspected, he lost one body and was constantly battling against the never ending problems of SAND IN EVERYTHING during his four year adventure as he photographed the secret wonders of the mighty Colorado River!

All Grown Up!

It’s Senior Picture time again Kiddos, and it’s always amazing when friends or relatives call to have their son or daughter schedule a visit to my Studio. I guess it really lets me know how fast the years are flying by! During today’s downpours I had the pleasure to shoot Tia’s Senior Portrait here at the 211 Studio. I’ve known her since she was born, as our families have been very close friends for years. It’s amazing, her transformation into a pretty, young woman. It seems just like yesterday when I was shooting some ‘Sister” portraits of Tia and her younger sister on the playground of a local grade school! Wow!

Elyse & Matt – 07/18/15 – Elmira College Campus – Elmira Country Club.
My approach to shooting Weddings has always been to compartmentalize all the different segments of the fun day and really concentrate on only the moments at hand.
…Getting Ready – Ceremony – Formals – and FUN OUTSIDE! That’s where we are here. While at both of these pretty locations, Fun people having a Great time ALWAYS combine with my eye & my ideas and together it’s a lock that we’ll come away with Fantastic Shots that tell the story of your exciting day!  Believe me, It Happens EVERY Weekend!

Here’s a couple of my favorite shots from Stephanie & Jeff’s Great Wedding today up at Sheldrake Point & Trumansburg. The light was PERFECT! Sometimes Wedding Couples think that if the Wedding Day is not bright sunshine the pictures will come out poorly. Just the opposite is true. A nice cloud cover is the perfect softbox to provide nice, even lighting! Today was a Great Day for shooting and these are just the tip of the bounty! Beautiful people, great locations, fantastic interactions with family & friends……we were hitting on all cylinders today baby!!!
