Discovery park is located on the Puget Sound, on the coast of Seattle. While in the middle of the city, it’s a decent hike to get to the lighthouse and nearby beach, meaning it’s pretty secluded most of the time. This was the location of the shoot with my sometimes assistant, the lovely Bin.
For the urban setting images, we stopped off in a nearby industrial district.
Lighting was provided by a few simple flashes using a variation on the starving student’s off-camera lighting kit.

Amanda wanted some lingerie shots, and came by the studio. In addition to the box shots, we got a collection of nice sexy headshots, as well as something appropriate for the boys overseas.
On a recent trip up north, I was fortunate enough to get to capture the Northern Lights – something those who live there commonly had seen only a couple of times.
After a quick read of this guide on how to photograph the aurora borealis, I was ready. Unfortunately the only tripod available was missing a key piece, so I had to improvise. Rocks and fence posts were the most stable things available and were pressed into service with good results. It was cold enough however that in less than an hour I had mild frostbite on my exposed fingers – even with a few breaks thrown in. It was worth it to capture an event most of the world never gets to see.
Had the opportunity to shoot the lovely Devon on a local farm this past weekend. When a Texan reviewer saw the images he called it “Texas Glamour,” which I think is a fine way to describe the images!
The shoot was quite relaxing, as I was taking advantage of a friend of the model as a voice-activated light stand, and using mostly natural light due to the loss of a part at an earlier shoot; forced improvisation can be a good thing, right? It was nice not to have to worry about the settings and placement on each strobe, and instead to focus on proper placement of the reflectors and simple rim lights.
Devon was an easy model to work with, posed well, followed direction when given, but didn’t need it every second either.
