"I see a little silhouette of a man"

One of my favorite photographers, Dustin Diaz, is fantastic for several reasons. First off, he's an incredible artist. Secondly, and almost more importantly, he posts setup shots of most of his stuff, so folks like me who are learning how to manipulate their gear can see how he works. It's really great.

This is an homage of sorts to one of his recent photos. I hope you enjoy it. Oh, and my setup shot is after the break, so click "Read More" to see how it's done.

The Promise of a Whole New World

The Beacon, originally uploaded by Breathe in Digital.

Kathleen is always happy to accommodate me when I've got a new idea for a shot that I need to play out right away. It's great to have people in your life who are eager to fulfill your creative whims.

These shots are not anything truly unique. I've seen them done many times . . . light in a fridge, light in a dryer, probably even other light in a bag shots. But I wanted to try my hand on it. If I were to do it again (and I"m sure I'll play on the theme some time in the future) I would do something different with the light that's not in the bag, but I like these shots regardless.

One more after the break, (click on Read More).

This is my first attempt at a serious self portrait. Made some lighting mistakes, so this is the only photo of the night that I think really works. Looks pretty good on black.

The phenomenal Cammila helped me out with posing and with hitting the remote shutter trigger for me, and without her I don't think I would have gotten a good one for the night. Thanks!

If you haven't noticed, for the last two weeks I've had shots up on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I'm going to try hard to keep to this routine throughout the summer (don't know about when the semester starts), so put it in your calendars boys and girls, and keep checking back!
