Halloween props and decorations…

Halloween is almost upon us! Each year we spend a great deal of time creating props and building scenes for our annual party.

Here is a quick video to display some of the props and effects we set up last year.


5D Mark III – Studio shot

I recently took a few shot’s of a friend who is a musician. It was a great chance to test out the new 5D Mark III in a studio setting.

In the limited testing I have enjoyed using the camera. Small features have impressed me, like having the autofocus point switch to a different spot based on how you are holding it (normal or portrait). So far I really like using the new body and look forward to putting it through its paces.

Live music photography

Live music photography is much like shooting indoor sports. The venues are frequently dark and the performers are usually moving. Since flash is often not an option you need fast lenses and high ISO, otherwise you’ll just end up with a blurry mess (with cool colors!).

Below are a few promo shots I took last year of Jaded Mary, a local Seattle band.
