My ELPH…..point and shoot.
It’s sort of primitive (if you can say that about a piece of technology that, in
one sense, is pretty mind-blowing). But it sure is easy to carry around.
I don’t carry it everywhere with me. I usually bring it along, though, when
I’m going somewhere (if that makes any sense).
This week I went up to Christina’s cottage and to a FIFA U-20 soccer
game. That’s somewhere.

Summer evenings the setting sun shines thru trees, a window, hits my wall.
Add wind to this mix and you get shifting patterns (almost) better than TV.

Just a little while ago I was writing here about white seamless shots
and hospital photos.
The other day I was out shooting R.K., the art director needed him
on white seamless. We set up in a pretty tiny room and I shot thru
the doorway. Here’s a wide shot showing some of the bits and pieces
required. The art director will crop him out and turn the whole back-
ground white, but I think it looks way kool just like this.
And, seems like ages ago I was in the hospital shooting for their annual
report. It was released Friday and, in case you missed it, here are some
of the shots. (Design by Donna Darby at Utopia Communications.)
I started work on a big editorial spread this week. Landscapes (believe it or
not) based on a theme that I can’t reveal here. Very relaxing it is, shooting
landscapes. Not having to worry about meeting people and then figuring out
what to do with them, how to block them.
Of course, with landscapes, it’s pretty important (at least important to
me) to stand in the right spot, aim the camera in the proper direction
and have sweet light. Just like most photography (or…most everything,
I suppose) having a bit of luck never hurts either.
I can’t show you much from this project until after it’s published (October).
Here’s the very first frame I shot (June 22nd).
And, no, the crow isn’t a prop. Just luck.
