Thinking Spring

Here in Ohio we have had it with winter and everybody is “Thinking Spring”. When my thoughts go to spring I think Baseball, “The Great American Pass Time”

I have over the years photographed several leagues but this is not by any means our studios specialty, but I enjoy getting out, when time allows, and photograph the kids in action. Here are a couple shots from last season.booster baseball_0183 booster baseball_0027 booster baseball_0055 booster baseball_0137

Doing the Green Thing

Going green, that is shooting on green screen, has opened up many new doors.
With today’s software it is possible to put your subject on almost any background you can imagine, the possibilities are end less.
When you consider the cost of painted canvas backgrounds a couple hundred bucks for good software is very affordable. Like anything else it takes sometime and practice to get the hang of it but eventually your results will pay off. All these examples were shot on green screen giving me the advantage of placing my client in a variety of settings.kempton_r_0007g1013 jessica_smith_0022a K_smith_0010b K_smith_0011e karen abrams_0008a kempton_r_0007b

Big Brothers and Little Sisters

Getting a big brother to sit with his little sister for any amount of time can offer a challenge. Getting them to have their portraits made together can be a whole different ball game unless mom and dad crack the whip.

When Micaela and Caleb showed up for their session I just knew that I had my work cut out for me, but to my surprise they were ready to share a moment together and allow me to make some images that showsjessica_smith_0033 jessica_smith_0036 jessica_smith_0037 jessica_smith_0039 their love for one another.

A Veterans Day Salute

On this day I’m reminded of this oath that I and millions of others have taken over the years.

“I am an American fighting man. I serve in forces which guard my country and way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense”

Today and everyday remember “Freedom Is Not Free”.  Offer  a welcome home, a thank you and a hand shake to those who have served and who are now serving to defend our rights as a free people. 066067

Babes on Bear Skin

Now that I have your attention, I hate to disappoint you. I’m sure this is not what you were expecting, but you have to admit this little fellow is very cute. Dana Maddy_0067

All About the Light

As a photographerflower1 copy I am always looking for that “special light” that takes an ordinary subject or object to the next level.  At a recent wedding while photographing the groom having his  Boutineer pined he turned slightly to where the sun back lit the flower creating this beautiful image.
