2018 Fall Portrait Season

It is that time of the year.  Fall portrait season is almost here.  Book early to ensure you have a spot.  It rains so make sure you have time to make up any outdoor session.

Fall is by far the most popular portrait season.  Here is a link to help you with picking the perfect location, time of day and clothes to wear.  If you have any question please feel free to contact myself.

I don’t charge for designing holiday cards with any portrait session.  All you pay for is the printing cost.

Day at the Beach

I spent a day at Assateague Island and Ocean City, Maryland taking candid family photographs.   Here are a few from the trip.  Candid photography is a great way to remember a trip or moment.  They capture raw emotion verses a posed look.  Hope you enjoy these images.  It was a great time and I even got a chance to fish in the ocean.  Thanks to all who were involved.

Lancaster Roots & Blues 2018

LANCASTER ROOTS & BLUES 2018

Here are some of my favorite images for the the fifth annual Lancaster Roots & Blues music festival in downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  There are 41 images so take your time.  My two favorites bands were Clarence Spady and Ron Holloway.  I did not make it to every location and every performance but what I saw was amazing.  As a journalist I have seen many music festivals in the area and this was be far the best.

Photographing bands in poor lighting can be very difficult so using a fast lens is key.  I also used spot focus and moved that point around constantly.  Most venues had decent lighting but Tellus 360, The Main Stage and the Chameleon Club were my favorites.  It should be noted that I didn’t attend The Sugar Tank and Zoetropolis.  Hope too see you next year and enjoy the gallery.

Bands I photographed were Clarence Spady, Anthony Gomes, Linwood Taylor, Ray Fuller & The Bluerockers, Kid Davis & the Bullets, Kenny Neal, Ron Holloway Band, The Justin Angelo Band,  Tommy Z and Magic Dick and Shun Ng.

Senior Portrait Ricketts Glenn

My niece came down from Pittsburgh because she wanted her senior portrait taken a Ricketts Glen.  Ricketts Glen is a 4-5 mile loop full of water falls.  We made it about half way before the rain came. This first image is us about five minutes before we got soaked.

The next day I took her to Harrisburg, because I thought it fit her better.  She had a totally different look that worked well with the urban landscape.  I toned these image all black and white because the color was not beneficial.

Macro Photography-Baby Praying Mantis

I saw my neighbor had taken to some photographs of baby praying mantis.  I contacted her to see if they were still around.  She had tons of them on some hosta plants but they were very small and were constantly moving.  I was unable to use a tripod and couldn’t hold my camera still enough to take a photo.  Of all the image I got one in focus.  The next morning I received a call the pod or whatever you call it was hatching.  I drove over again.  It was amazing!  I had never seen anything like this before.  Hundreds of baby praying mantis crawling out of this cocoon like ball.   The light was overcast and I didn’t have enough depth of field to photograph such a small object.  Luckily, I had a shoot the day before and left my strobes in my car.  Here are a few of the image I shot.
