North Sky

This is the first test for a series of time lapse projects I’m in the process of developing. Currently, I’m working on building the motion control system that will be required to achieve some of the ideas I have in mind. It’s a simple test, but I’m really excited about the next stages.

Pavlova Video

I did a quick one-light baking tutorial shoot a little while ago and thought I’d mention that it was just posted by Cupcakes and Sundry. It can be found here on youtube. Turned out to be a great day of shooting and editing. It’s not a very stylized look but it was a great way to put some new camera rig designs of mine to the test. Not to mention a tasty end product!

Nikon Video Rig

I’ve been meaning to develop some ideas in video content (part of the reason for the purchase of my D300), and have recently built a rig to make the more cinematic approaches possible. Most of the problems I’ve had are with predictable camera moves and changes while shooting. So I’ve decided to solve those problems (and some others) by building a rig that has the following:– follow focus system– matte box with barn doors– rail system to support these– and […]


SnapBlog. Maybe I invented a new term, but I think it’s the most appropriate way of classifying what it is I’m trying to do under that category. I spend a lot of time, thought and energy developing my photographic images. Most of my work that falls under the term of “photographic” is done with a specific goal and technical fidelity in mind. However, I also just love shooting things as I come across them! This can be a very different […]

iPhone 4

Not necessarily photo related news for most, but it is for me. I finally got my iPhone for and can now start the SnapBlog in the way I had hoped. I’m already quite impressed with the camera on the device. Moreover, the camera app options make it really fun to commit to a style when shooting and trying out new things without a “computer” or even thinking of post processing.

Cheaper Solutions

There are unique tools we need (or want) to use in photography, but often times these tools amount to a larger than expected withdrawal from our credit cards. In the spirit of sharing on the internet, I’m hoping to share some of the products and DIY projects I have found to help me get around some of the more “official” solutions. I am not claiming that any of these are better in manufactured quality, versatility or otherwise, but these are […]

Macro Flash Bracket

Due to some requests I have posted more info on my macro flash bracket. It was built in an afternoon with spare photographic parts and aluminum from the garage and works better than I had hoped. it was built due to the need for variable lighting effects close to the subject and needed to fulfill the following requirements: – adjustment with one hand – not only be sturdy but add stability to the whole assembly – work in both landscape […]
